"Last Shot is a brisk novel set in the madness of the NCAA's Final Four. Exceptionally knowledgeable about the college basketball world, Feinstein has a fine time lampooning broadcaster Dick Vitale and the bureaucrats who populate the NCAA itself. The blackmailing plot that unfolds over the course of Final Four weekend threatens a student-athlete who isn't a student, implicates an ethics professor with no ethics, and otherwise introduces to young readers the sleaze beneath the glitter of college basketball's biggest show. Remarkably, Feinstein pokes holes in the illusions without diminishing the excitement of the games themselves as seen through the eyes of two eighth-grade reporters. He writes as if he's having a fine time at the keyboard, and the result will entertain not only young readers, but the oldsters looking over their shoulders as well." --Boston Globe

"Score! That's exactly what author John Feinstein does with this mystery."--Dallas Morning News

"You'll feel as if you have a courtside seat at the SuperDome. Last Shot is Feinstein's first entry into fiction for young people, and it's an impressive one. The story is intriguing, the dialogue snappy and the finale exciting." --Bookpage
