Part crime novel, part textbook, Dangerous Hoops combines the principles of marketing and forensic accounting into a lively narrative to educate and entertain.
Set in the world of professional sports, Dangerous Hoops introduces FBI agent Bill Douglass as he pursues a deadly extortionist in order to save lives—and spare the NBA from a public relations nightmare. The adventurous storyline—complete with demands for cash and diamonds, poisoned collectors’ cards and botched drop-offs—also uses the foundations of business and marketing with examples from the world of pro basketball.
Both innovative and educational, Dangerous Hoops, provides real instruction in a novel form and serves as a refreshing text for business majors and MBA students.
