About the Book

The Kingmaker Case provides a first-hand account of the controversial private and public life of Caleb Escueta. As an amateur, Caleb Escueta had achieved success at every level. During his sophomore season, as a professional, some believed he was on his way to becoming one of the game’s elite players. Then, Assistant District Attorney R. F. Sanchez revealed that Escueta had been charged with a crime, and the “Kingmaker” fell quickly from grace. With unique access, the novel explores the hidden contours of sex, lies, and the law.
