Baker & Taylor A new series set at Notre Dame University, where the author has taught for years, introduces the Knight brothers--Philip, a P.I., and Roger, the philosophy professor--in their first case, which involves ten million dollars, a dead trustee, and the great coach Knute Rockne. 15,000 first printing.
Blackwell North Amer To many Notre Dame alumni, being a good Fighting Irish fan is as important as being a good Catholic. Billionaire Marcus Bramble is obsessed with the sport and with the father of all college football coaching - the great Knute Rockne. But when Bramble offers the school ten million dollars to memorialize the Rock, things get dangerously competitive. While debate rages over how to honor the coach, one trustee - the outspoken Madeline Rune - ends up dead. Rune was the daughter of the great sports historian F.X. Bourke and the heir to his estate. The most likely suspect in Rune's murder is her embittered and philandering husband, but lurking in the background are forces more political than marital. When the murder suspect also becomes a victim, surprising information ends up in the hands of the Knight brothers: Philip, the private eye, and Roger, the brilliant Notre Dame philosophy professor. With help from an intriguing cast of local characters, the Knight brothers embark on the most clever and energetic McInerny series to date.
