The Fix

(2014)
A novel by

 
 
Star college quarterback, Colt Walker, has it all: good looks, brains, one of the best arms in the game, not to mention potential for the Heisman and a first round NFL draft pick, until he puts it all on the line as he slides into the ugly world of sports gambling....

College football referee, Frank Gastner, is a man stewing in his own misery, consumed by a drinking problem, heavy gambling debt, and heading into a nasty divorce....

Two emotionally wrought characters; their lives spin completely out of control - alcohol, lies, bookies, and mobsters - pushing them deeper into despair....

Until they are brought together on the football field, each hoping to resolve his own dilemma. But will they succeed?

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Praise for this book

"One thing I love is a good mystery. More than that I love a good soprts mystery. And most of all I love a good sports mystery that feels real." - John Feinstein
