In VO2 Max, the third installment of Katharine Nohr's legal mystery sports fiction series set in Honolulu, Hawaii, attorneys Zana West's and Jerry Hirano's relationship is at risk when new challenges develop as Zana takes on a new career track as a sports agent. Will their love survive all the changes? And can Zana help new pro-triathletes, Haley O'Neill and Sean Bennett, stay on the right path?
Professional Triathletes Haley O'Neill and Sean Bennett are graduates from the University of Sacramento, but have no chance of landing jobs with their liberal arts degrees in the depressed economy.
Chasing the hope of winning a trip for two to Paris, the prize for each age group winner at the Freewheel Movement Triathlon in Honolulu, the young couple cashed in their frequent flyer miles, flew to Hawaii, and took their chances that one of them would win.
After losing the race, they find themselves homeless in Honolulu until a chance encounter with billionaire Bud Schubert leads them to a lifestyle beyond their wildest imaginations. Haley and Sean become the golden couple in the newly monetized sport of triathlon. They are amongst the first professional triathletes to garner prize money the likes of golf and tennis, and hire attorney Zana West to be their sports agent.
When Zana discovers that performance enhancing drugs have infiltrated the pro triathlon ranks, she enlists the help of Olympic Gold Medalist Ryan Peterson who was ousted from professional cycling for doping years ago. VO2 Max takes readers for a spin in the fast and newly glamorous world of professional triathlon.
