Ah yes, it's time for another season of tennis... They have been together for years, the girls, on the same team, lolling through the seasons - such a pleasant way to socialize and at the same time get some exercise. The perfect excuse for lunch and a glass of wine afterward. But this season, there seems to be a slight fly in the ointment. There is a new member on the team who, ridiculous as it may seem, wants desperately to win... at any cost. And damn, the team has made the colossal mistake of electing her captain. Halfway through the season, the girls can see that they might have to take matters into their own hands. They might even have to take the law into their own hands. Devoto is the author of four critically acclaimed novels that have nothing whatsoever to do with tennis. But she couldn't resist this one foray into the daunting perils of women in tennis.
