The Badger Game by Norman Shabel

Horace Badger, the dean of men of nearby Reliance College had been murdered. By whom? and why? were the questions.

Stosh Klewzewski, leader of the violent Catholic White Knights is charged with the murder. During the trial, the Catholic Church's cover-up of the sexual abuse of hundreds of altar boys came to light. Were Klewzewski and Badger involved? Did they know about them? 

The 1960 Presidential election involves the Catholic candidate John F. Kennedy. Could the sexual abuse revelation of the cover-up damage the Kennedy election? Was the Catholic Church the real defendant in the Badger murder trial?
