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.

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.
Some of the finest paperback originals I have ever read were part of Ralph Dennis' HARDMAN series. The books were well-written, hard-hitting, unsentimental, but still full of heart.
