In this book, Susan Carol isn't a reporter--she's an Olympian, competing as a swimmer at her first Olympic games. Stevie is both proud and envious of her athletic prowess. And he's worried by the agents, sponsors, and media, all want to get up close and personal with her. But the more disturbing question is--how far might they go to ensure that America's newest Olympic darling wins gold?

Praise for Rush For The Gold

“Booklist, May 1, 2012:"As in his earlier books in the series, the popular Feinstein takes readers inside a major sports venue, supplies fascinating details, and serves up a satisfying mystery."Kirkus Reviews, April 1, 2012:"As is his wont, Feinstein salts the cast with real athletes and other figures from Michael Phelps to Bob Costas. He folds plenty of dramatic sports action as well as behind-the-scenes banter and personal and family conflict into a plot that moves smoothly to a suspenseful climax...A fast-paced caper."”
