"The reader of Strohm's suspenseful and sympathetic journey is simultaneously in the grip of a thriller, inside the head of a basketball junkie, and at the feet of a natural-born storyteller." -- Charles McDermid, The San Francisco Chronicle
"Craig Strohm has told a story that reflects years of experience on the basketball court, and, rarer still, a knowledge of the hazards of the human heart." -- Peter Collier, best-selling author of "The Kennedys"
"A heart-rending story that forces the reader to take a close look at the line between obsessive behavior and staying true to one's convictions."
--Denise Curry,1997 Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist
