James Donaldson’s Book Review – Murder of a Star Quarterback: The Tragic Tale of Steve McNair and Sahel Kazemi by R. Barri Flowers

This was a fascinating, quick paced narrative about Tennessee Titans NFL great quarterback, Steve McNair and his young lover who committed a murder/suicide with the both of them.

McNair was a record-setting quarterback both in college and in the NFL, and a very well-liked, all around, community guy and family man. He seemed to have it all, but obviously, led a “double life” and in some cases a “triple life”, with several mistresses, and other involvements.

Well, to his unfortunate end, he came across a very attractive, young, immature beauty of a girlfriend, that he had supplied with vehicles and a nice condo, but she was tremendously jealous and had one of those mindsets of “if I can’t have him, nobody will”.

While they were both over at Steve McNair’s house, and according to the crime scene reports, McNair was asleep on the living room couch, when she put a bullet through his head and two or three more through his chest. She then turned the gun on herself to end they’re very dysfunctional saga.

Even though McNair was the star quarterback, this is far from a “sports/jock” story, this is one of the “whodunit, crime dramas” that the author, R. Barri Flowers is well known for.

It’s a quick read, fast-paced, and very captivating at the same time.

It’s not for everyone, but if you want a good crime drama, that actually features a well-known personality, this is it.
