Bad morality tale-academia doesn't educate and doesn't care, college athletics is all about money and status, and apparently Spenser is willing to let murderers get away with well murder to allow our poor downtrodden star athlete to become a millionaire if he will only learn to read. Good writing, lousy story Cinderella.

Spenser, Susan Silverman and Hawk cannot be beat.

IMHO, it is probably not a good idea to reveal the plot in comments.

Spenser, with the help of Susan and Hawk, investigates a basketball player in university who is accused of points shaving. There are thugs and shootings, but the good guys win, and the bad guy is put in a witness protection program.
