This book is a total departure from Mike Lupica s usual style For most of his books, it appears Lupica used one outline and simply changed the details and sports, with the flow of the story remaining exactly the same In this one, however, Lupica gives us a mystery the tale of a woman who comes forward after a year and reports that two star basketball players raped her The reader is left in doubt as to who is telling the truth, especially when we learn that the victim and both ballplayers This book is a total departure from Mike Lupica s usual style For most of his books, it appears Lupica used one outline and simply changed the details and sports, with the flow of the story remaining exactly the same In this one, however, Lupica gives us a mystery the tale of a woman who comes forward after a year and reports that two star basketball players raped her The reader is left in doubt as to who is telling the truth, especially when we learn that the victim and both ballplayers are lying about some of the details Lupica finds a way out of this dilemma of blame , by providing an ending in which everyone loses The result leaves is a sense of sadness, and of justice, even if that justice was not provided by the legal system Well worth the read This book could have been really good Mr Lupica writes as if he forgets he is writing a novel The jumps were jagged, foul language was inserted at random places, and the characters were forgetful of their action in the novel Having said all this, the novel was plotted well and the ending was heartbreaking I will give this author another chance and hope this book was written early in his career, but given the publication date, I think he gets only once chance. wow Disappointing I probably wouldn t have finished it if I wasn t stuck on the plane Story seems to meander. Lupica is my fav sports reporter He wrote a great column the day the RS won the pennant in 2004 I wish I had known enough to save it Anyway, really liked this book. I ll read another.
