Now a private investigator, Blissberg scours locker rooms and back alleys for two missing basketball stars.
After retiring from baseball, Harvey Blissberg hung out a shingle in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as a private detective with a taste for the less savory side of sports. When key players from the Boston Celtics and the Washington Bullets go AWOL, Blissberg quickly becomes the two teams’ number-one draft choice to find them.
What can a born-again black forward and a white point guard whose nickname is "Toot ’n’ Shoot" have in common? When both of the missing players turn up dead, Harvey searches desperately for the link between them. The hunt leads him back to the city he thought he’d left behind - Providence, Rhode Island - and an unholy deal struck years ago between two of the city’s most powerful figures. If he doesn’t work quickly, Blissberg may be stuck holding the ball when the final buzzer sounds.

Ex-Red Sox center fielder Harvey Blissberg (Strike Three You're Dead is now a private eye in Cambridge. He's hired to find a missing Boston Celtics star and then, quickly, a missing Washington Bullets player. Both athletes have vanished from Boston's Logan Airport, the Celtic last seen in the company of "a man with a beard." Blissberg can't find any connection between the players, and there are hints that drugs are behind the disappearances. Then the two bodies turn up in separate lockers in the Eastern terminal, both shot, but with different guns. Blissberg finds a very tenuous connection that takes him to Providence, where he uncovers the old, possible murder of a high-school basketball star that may involve a legendary college coach now running for the U.S. Senate. Background details of Providence and Cambridge are nicely conveyed, but readers may object that the final, crucial clue to the mystery isn't played fairly. And New Englanders may be dismayed by the sporadic, hence jarring, depiction of their accents.
