Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Champion's lighthearted ninth Bomber Hanson mystery (after 2005's To Die For) finds the bombastic California attorney and his diffident son, Tod, tackling the defense of 10 Cal Southern football players, all black, accused of raping stripper Mimi Parquette, also black, at a stag party that got out of hand. When attempts by Clarence Dixon, head of Cal's booster club, to buy off the plaintiff fail, he turns to Bomber, who, despite his disdain for football, decides to accept the case. Bomber's nemesis, Judge Sean McKorkle, stymies him at every turn in court until Bomber collapses. McKorkle, prosecutor Web Granger, and the defendants press Tod to take over, despite his inexperience and unwillingness to do so. It's do or die for Tod, who holds the fate of the 10 players and, perhaps, the Cal Southern coach and team in his sweating hands. Tod's courtroom performance proves unorthodox, amusing, and effective. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

When an exotic dancer accuses a popular college football team of rape, the team's handlers try to convince Bomber Hanson and his amiable son Tod to take the case. Despite theis resistance to cooperate, Tod is convinced the young football players are innocent, and when Bomber is unexpectedly hospitalized Tod is forced to take over their defense. Fans won't be disappointed in what is sure to be Tod's best performance yet.
