Any year when the Fighting Irish don't go undefeated is a disappointment, but to turn in a losing football season is unheard of. This year the faithful are refusing to admit defeat even as the losses start to pile up. With the students in a funk and the alumni in an uproar, something must be done, or more precisely, somebody has to go. Since they can't expel the team, they'll have to settle for firing the multimillion-dollar head coach---but will a new coach satisfy everyone?

There are some---namely faculty members with a distaste for university athletics---who see this as their chance to refocus the school on academics. When the battle between Notre Dame's academic and athletic traditions turns deadly, however, Roger Knight, professor of Catholic Studies, becomes a marked man.

Accustomed to working together, Roger and his P.I. brother Philip will have to go their separate ways in Ralph McInerny's delightful The Green Revolution to unravel a campus-wide conspiracy and put the Irish back on top.

Reviews

Praise for The Green Revolution

"McInerny produces a lively mix of institutional history and criticism with colorful individual foibles and the obligatory murder. The end result should please any but the most rabid Notre Dame football fan for whom any recall of the 2007 season is too painful." - Publishers Weekly
