Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When sports and religion collide, it results in an ungodly murder...

As the Notre Dame campus gears up for one of the most religiously-charged sporting events in history-the big game between Catholic Notre Dame and Protestant pastor Edwina Marciniak, plans to make a statement by disrupting both the game and the theological conference campus scholars are holding. But the murder of an administrator threatens to steal the headlines...

Who killed the unlamented Hazel Nootin? Detective Philip Knight and his brother, brilliant philosophy professor Roger Knight, are summoned to put a lid on the case. As they hone in on their prime suspects-and on-and-off-the-wagon reporter, a troubled football star with an explosive secret, and Hazel's hapless husband-the Knights must score a goal for justice. This is one game they can't afford to fumble.

Synopsis:

The University of Notre Dame is gearing up for a highly anticipated football game. Baylor University, the country's preeminent Protestant college, will meet the Catholic champions of Notre Dame for the first time. As the gameday approaches, campus scholars plan a theological conference about Catholic and Protestant history.

Soon sparks fly, and the brothers Roger and Philip Knight are swept into a web of religious and athletic fervor. When a murder shakes the campus, Roger (a professor) and Philip (a private eye) must work in very different ways to find the killer. Then Notre Dame's famed, brilliant, and troubled quarterback mysteriously disappears and evidence links him to the crime.
