KIRKUS REVIEW

Tennis pro Archer's temptation is a piece of junior jailbait well endowed in every way (even if he has had a married woman to service him off court) and he's well into twenty years worth of trouble before he undertakes the defense of an innocent ""nigger."" That's the better part of this story which also deals with university protest and the dismissal of a ""Now person"" ""whoring after . . . televised martyrdom."" Crude oil rich southern rim politicos are behind everything that is going on and the scene is New Orleans where the language of the locker room seems to prevail whether at the country club or on the campus. But action abounds along with soft core sex.
