Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alexander Drouhin built one of the nation's premier sports agencies through gritty negotiation and savvy marketing. When Drouhin is found murdered — shot at close range — in the study of his sprawling estate on the outskirts of Boston, suspects abound, chiefly among his former clients and employees.

In addition to a motley crew of untamable star athletes who were constantly getting into trouble, Drouhin was surrounded by FD Whitman, his right-hand man and "first real hire", and Pete Martigneau, his chief of security, both former football stars; the firm's squad of junior agents — whom Drouhin dignified as "my crack team of associates" — all irritated at the hefty share of profits taken by the big boss; and an army of support staff, including Drouhin's pistol-packing limo driver. And by the time Detective Lieutenant Inspector Francis Clay arrives on the scene, everyone seems to have an alibi.

Here is classic Higgins — brisk and bracing to the end.
