The toughest coach in college football in the toughest game of all.
Harry Carr is the legendary college football coach who takes no prisoners. Even to the point of forcing his star quarterback off his unbeaten team, because the QB didn’t want to play in garbage time with a twice-broken nose. No one really likes the hard-driving, hard-drinking Harry—they just glom onto his success. Well, there’s one AP wire reporter who still likes Harry, even for the dinosaur that he is. John Morris calls the sports stories as he sees them, but watches in wonder as Coach Carr lives his precarious, anachronistic existence.
Until that star quarterback is found gruesomely killed in Morris’ own hotel room. Morris and his sassy companion Julia Sullivan are plunged deep into the intrigues and petty secrets—and jarring violence—of a small college town. Morris and Sullivan agree to help Harry Carr find the murderer. But of course Carr is a key suspect himself, last seen tossing the player’s footlocker through his dorm window. Reporting the sports stories is safe enough—until Morris’ questions in Sparta, Georgia, start hitting too close to home. But whose home? They better find out fast, before it all catches up to them.
Originally published as a Ballantine paperback in the acclaimed Morris & Sullivan Mystery series, REPLAY: MURDER is now available as a quality ebook—with active Contents and proper digital formatting—from QP Books.
