I almost didn't make it to the end of this one. I read Feinstein's second book (Vanishing Act) first and enjoyed the way the author inserted real tennis commentators like Mary Carillo and Bud Collins into the story line. I also enjoyed reading about the thirteen year old sportswriters who solved the mystery.

I follow tennis. I don't follow basketball. That may be why book one, which takes place during the NCAA basketball tournament, didn't grab me. I knew I was in trouble when Stevie's award winning article told about the Palestra. Feinstein never did explain just what and where it was. I had to Google it. (My husband will be pleased to know that the University of Pennsylvania teams are called The Quakers and that The Palestra is the cathedral of college basketball.)
