Gutsy, relentless, wisecracking P.I. Fina Ludlow is back with her most hard-hitting case yet in the critically acclaimed series by Ingrid Thoft. When soccer mom Liz Barone is attacked in her kitchen and left with a life-threatening injury, Fina Ludlow is hired by Liz's mother to identify her attacker. It's unusual for Fina to take a case that isn't connected to the family firm, Ludlow and Associates, but Liz was in the process of suing her alma mater, New England University-a suit that could be a legal gold mine. Twenty years earlier, Liz was an NEU soccer star known for her physical toughness; however, a serious cognitive decline has soured her soccer memories. She's convinced that her aggressive style of play-and the university's willingness to ignore head injuries in favor of a win-has put her health and her future in jeopardy, and someone needs to be held responsible. Was Liz attacked to stop her lawsuit, or were there other secrets in the seemingly innocent woman's life? Fina convinces her father and boss, Carl, to take the case, and discovers that wading into the financially lucrative and emotionally charged world of collegiate sports requires nerves of steel. As the list of suspects grows and hidden agendas are revealed, Fina wonders if any game is worth the price.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Not only do readers have a bird’s-eye view of Fina’s sleuthing activities, but they also are given carte blanche access to the relationships with the dysfunctional family that nurtured Fina. This scrappy and outspoken young woman fights her own battles and unabashedly stands up to her father and older brothers when the need arises. Thoft’s latest title is worthy of the acclaim its predecessors have garnered.” Library Journal (starred review)
“In her third outing, Fina’s firecracker bravado evolves into true confidence, and she attacks her roles as investigator and heavy within her dysfunctional family with delightfully readable vigor.” Booklist
“Thoft is an entertaining storyteller, and her quirky protagonist’s the equal of any male gumshoe.” Kirkus Reviews
