    Best-selling sportswriter and Edgar Award winner John Feinstein is back with another sports mystery featuring Stevie Thomas and Susan Carol Anderson—this one set at the summer Olympics in London. In this book, Susan Carol isn't a reporter—she's an Olympian, competing as a swimmer at her first Olympic games. Stevie is both proud and envious of her athletic prowess. And he's worried by the agents and sponsors and media all wanting to get up close and personal with Susan Carol.

    Robert Buschkemper says: "OK against Olympics 2012 backdrop"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I listen while driving and this book is decent enough to keep my attention without risking saftey. I appreciated the insights into what life is for an Olympic athlete beyond the training and competition, especially the pressure to perform in order to attain high paying sponsors. I had never grasped the real money value of finishing Gold vs Silver as far as endorsements are concerned.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    While interestingly and acceptably performed, the story is fairly formulaic with all of the good guys and bad guys pretty easily identified. That said, I still found myself wanting to listen until the end.
