Retired pro football star Ed Cross did most of his scoring between bed posts with other player’s women, including Hump’s ex-girlfriend. That was bad enough. But, just to rub it in, Cross sends Hump an x-rated birthday skin flick of him celebrating in bed with two women. Hump goes looking for blood… and finds it. Cross is murdered and Hump becomes the prime suspect. Hardman works to clear Hump and discovers there’s plenty of murderous hate for Cross out there…from the top of the sports world to the pits of Atlanta’s illegal gambling scene… and revealing it could get them both killed.
This new edition includes an Afterword from Ben Jones, the Dukes of Hazzard actor and former U.S. Congressman from Georgia.
In their sixth adventure, Hardman and Hump step into the middle of a bar fight and stumbles into a deadly but lucrative job -- protecting a guy who is next-in-line for a massive inheritance from being murdered by professional assassins.
Dennis wrote with assurance. His prose was muscular, swift, and highly readable.
First, let me give the Hardman series my highest recommendation. And DOWN AMONG THE JOCKS, the fifth Hardman novel, is pretty darn great.
Among the best series books around.
