Dangerous Hoops: A Forensic Marketing Action Adventure

Front Cover
LSU Press, Aug 15, 2011 - Business & Economics - 248 pages
0 Reviews

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 explores aspects 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.
