When a star quarterback is killed before his senior year, hardboiled reporter Mitch Sawyer must battle personal and professional demons in order to track down a killer before he strikes again.
Mitch Sawyer likes a good murder. A good murder means his stories will probably land on the front page of the Nashville Daily Tribune. But this one is different. This one is Jimmy Chin Lee, brilliant quarterback at Vanderbilt University and possibly -- probably -- the next Heisman Trophy winner. But two weeks before the season is to begin, Lee is found dead in his west side apartment, victim of a gunshot wound.
No clues, one suspect -- but the police can't find her. She finds Mitch. After that, nothing goes right for anyone.
