After winning a basketball reporting contest, eighth graders Stevie and Susan Carol are sent to cover the Final Four tournament, where they discover that a talented player is being blackmailed into throwing the final game. Steven Thomas is one of two lucky winners of the U.S. Basketball Writer's Association's contest for aspiring journalists. His prize? A trip to New Orleans and a coveted press pass for the Final Four. It's a basketball junkie's dream come true! But the games going on behind the scenes between the coaches, the players, the media, the money-men, and the fans turn out to be even more fiercely competitive than those on the court. Steven and his fellow winner, Susan Carol Anderson, are nosing around the Superdome and overhear what sounds like a threat to throw the championship game. Now they have just 48 hours to figure out who is blackmailing one of MSU's star players - and why.

This book was very boring for me. I usually like mystery books, but this one was hard to follow and had too many characters that got me confused.

This read read like a sports article instead a great fictional story. It seemed like the characters and the plot were secondary to the facts about Dicky V. and Coach K. If I were not at a loss of options for audiobooks at the time, Last Shot would have been abandoned.
