last shot

Feinstein, John. The Last Shot. NY: Knopf, 2005.

narrator: third-person limited, Steven Thomas

I’m not a sports fan, not a sports-writing fan, except for a few who write about issues, but this book works well, maybe because it’s also a mystery, “A Final Four Mystery,” as the cover states. Nice interweaving of all the issues (hmm…except race, gender) in college basketball, great character in Sue Carol Anderson, the other winner besides Steve Thomas, of the writing contest that gets both of them to New Orleans and the Final Four. Enough tension and well-paced so that I stayed to the end and might…consider reading another. But not before I pick up another Sammy Keyes novel…
