Fourth Down to Death (Mike Shayne #61)

3.71  ·  Rating Details  ·  7 Ratings  ·  1 Review
She was a locker room fantasy. She said she was a nurse and made more forward passes at her quarterback patient than either hospital or game rules allowed.

Her strategy was deadly, but Mike Shayne couldn't read her signals until the backfield came into motion with killers, one foul play followed another-and someone went out of bounds to score for murder!

I could tell you that I've been wanting to try another Mike Shayne mystery since Hard Case reprinted Murder is my Business but I really picked this one up because of the cover.
