About the Book and Author
A former Dispatch crime and investigative reporter and award-winning novelist, Robin Yocum returns to his Ohio Valley roots in his fifth novel, A Perfect Shot. Two decades after he made the winning shot in the state championship basketball game, Nicholas "Duke" Ducheski remains much adored on the streets of Mingo Junction. No longer wanting his life to be defined by something he did when he was eighteen, he parlays his local popularity into a successful restaurant'Duke's Place. When a known mob enforcer murders his oldest friend, Duke figures out a way to extract revenge. To do so, however, means leaving Mingo Junction and sacrificing his treasured identity as the town legend. If he follows through, what will remain of his life?


Robin is an Edgar-nominated author of Favorite Sons, The Essay, A Brilliant Death, and A Welcome Murder. He also serves as the literary advisor for Thurber House.
