Kill the Quarterback

Pronoun

When a star quarterback is killed before his senior year, hardboiled reporter Mitch Sawyer must battle personal and professional demons in order to track down a killer before he strikes again.

Mitch Sawyer likes a good murder. A good murder means his stories will probably land on the front page of the Nashville Daily Tribune. But this one is different. This one is Jimmy Chin Lee, brilliant quarterback at Vanderbilt University and possibly — probably — the next Heisman Trophy winner. But two weeks before the season is to begin, Lee is found dead in his west side apartment, victim of a gunshot wound.

There are no clues. There’s nothing that the forensic team can produce that will point in any direction. There’s only a rumor about a girlfriend, someone that no one seems to have seen.

Then Mitch finds her. Rather, she finds him. She’s afraid. She thinks either the police are going to charge her with Jimmy Chin’s murder or she is going to be killed herself. She asks Mitch for help.

Thus, Mitch enters a vortex of professional and cultural complexities that eventually make him the target of the killer.

For the first time, enjoy this collection of FOUR inspirational Ultimate Gift stories.

#1 The Ultimate Gift
What would you do to inherit a million dollars? Would you be willing to change your life? Jason Stevens is about to find out in Jim Stovall's The Ultimate Gift.

Red Stevens has died, and the older members of his family receive their millions with greedy anticipation. But a different fate awaits young Jason, whom Stevens, his great-uncle, believes may be the last vestige of hope in the family.

"Although to date your life seems to be a sorry excuse for anything I would call promising, there does seem to be a spark of something in you that I hope we can fan into a flame. For that reason, I am not making you an instant millionaire."

What Stevens does give Jason leads to The Ultimate Gift. Young and old will take this timeless tale to heart.

#2 The Ultimate Life
Jason Stevens found out he had to jump through hoops to maybe get an unnamed inheritance from his billionaire grandfather, he was not amused. By the time he'd finished learning the lessons he'd become a different man. Ready to tackle the duties of running a multi-billion dollar trust, he is once again derailed, this time by his pugnacious family. Not content with their cattle ranches and oil fields, his aunts, uncles, and even his parents are determined to see every last dime entrusted to their own self-serving pockets.

With none of the reluctance he initially showed for the Gift, he eagerly accepts the challenge and pushes himself to prove not only to his family and the court but also to the world, that with determination and the simple tenets of the Gift, anyone can lead The Ultimate Life.

#3 The Ultimate Journey
In the touching third installment of the series, Jason learns that life’s journey is all about traveling well—not about the destination. In The Ultimate Journey, readers will discover the secrets of a successful life, including:• Money helps pay for the trip, but should never be a destination …• Friends make the journey worthwhile …• Laughter lightens the load of any rough or rocky uphill road …• Time may be allotted in small or large portions but the moment is what counts …… and so much more.
#4 The Gift of a Legacy
Theodore Hamilton’s good friend and Joey Anderson’s great-grandmother, Sally Mae Anderson, touched many lives during her lifetime. Joey, however, has little interest in his great-grandmother’s final wishes after she dies—until he learns that she’s left him Anderson House, her successful bed-and-breakfast. But he will only inherit if he lives at Anderson House and follows Sally Mae’s instructions. How can Joey ever meet her challenge?
 Jason Stevens knows how Joey is feeling. After all, Jason’s grandfather left him a similar inheritance years before—and his life has never been the same. The Gift of a Legacy reminds us that one legacy can change the world forever.

Bestselling author Jim Stovall’s latest offering and first title of his Homecoming Historical Series, One Season of Hope, is a rare combination of tear-jerking emotion, powerful wisdom, and inspiring hope. Written in Stovall’s signature easy and economical style, the story is told through the perspective of Glen Fullerton, “a man for the last forty-two years in the Truman High universe, simply known as Coach.”

Welcome to the Friday night lights of Harry S. Truman High School football stadium. Coach knows the roller-coaster ride of a high school football season better than anyone. But this season is different than any he has experienced in all his years of coaching. It is one of life-changing suspense and gripping lessons in the value of humanity.

Regular, reflective “conversations” with the late President Truman give guidance, mined from the coach’s love and study of history, to help him through the most challenging season of his long and storied career at Truman High—a season that he will forever remember as One Season of Hope.
