Jim Lester - Shadow Games - Book Blitz

Coming of Age

Published: June 2018

Danny McCall loves basketball more than anything in the world. So why would he risk his basketball scholarship, his girlfriend and his entire future to fix the point spread in a series of college basketball games?  Set in the early 1990s, Shadow Games is a topical novel with a powerful portrayal of the loss of youthful innocence.




There was a dead body in the next room and it was my fault.

     For a while, I stayed in the room with the body. The TV set was on. President Clinton’s face filled the screen. He was taking questions from reporters and they seemed to be having a heated exchange. The sound on the TV was turned off.

     I couldn’t stop looking at the corpse. What had I done?

     When I couldn’t stand it anymore I went into the kitchen. My heart jumped around in my chest like it wanted to leap out and flop around on the floor.

     The cops were on their way. I thought about running but they’d find me. There was no escape. I had to face the music.

     I’d made a mess of my life in just two years. How was that possible?
