The Black Tartan Slammer approaching the latter stages of a frustratingly unfulfilled professional tennis career enlists the assistance of two middle-aged male friends, who hail from her native Scotland, and who have made considerable personal and financial sacrifices to help facilitate one highly probable final attempt to win Wimbledon, or any one of the other Grand Slam events in New York, Melbourne or Paris. The ensuing adventure follows her progress over a season as she travels to New York in the first instance and then Melbourne and Paris, before returning to London. The resultant journey ultimately encounters unconventional sexual tension and relationships, a kidnapping ordeal, an unplanned pregnancy dilemma, drug abuse, an unsolicited lesbian encounter, forged legal contracts, murder investigation, allegations of racism and intimidation, a ball girl blackmail scandal, soccer glory, share investment fraud, corporate corruption, bribery and financial ruin...with some highly entertaining tennis played in between. Compulsively readable.
