Sandra Brown Writes Some Crazy Friggin' Books
On her Web site, New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown doesn't quite give away the plot of her forthcoming book, Play Dirty, which arrives in bookstores August 14. The Arlington-based, Simon & Schuster-published, Texas Medal of the Arts-winning novelist drops a few hints here and there: It's about a guy named Griff Burkett -- "former all-star quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys [who's] released from prison after serving a five year sentence in federal prison for racketeering." Broke and disgraced and fresh out of prospects, he's offered a "doozy" of a job, but, dang it, Brown never says just what it is.
Thank God for the Kirkus Reviews then. No dicking around with these people -- they're straight to it, right in the headline. So what's Play Dirty about? Says the subscription-only piece: "Fallen gridiron great, fresh out of prison, reluctantly agrees to impregnate the wife of a disabled millionaire." The missus wants her a copy, pronto. So proud. --Robert Wilonsky
