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.
Mike Shayne, the private eye who sports with danger, runs dead center into a dirty game of kick-backs, payoffs and sudden-death overtime.
