Disturbing. But Brilliant.,
This review is from: Off the Chest: Confessions of match-fixing in the Premier league (Kindle Edition)
I kind of feel the product description doesn't do this book justice. 'Gambling, sex and drug taking' it promises - what's new? Sounds like an average night to me.
I'll tell you what's new. Never before have I read such an honest, at times brutal, account of one man's descent into the depths of addiction. You will be astounded how a seemingly respectable man with the world at his feet is transformed, almost overnight, into a complete reprobate. In spite of this, the tale is delivered with such humility that you cannot help but feel for the guy. You certainly would not expect this from a professional footballer!
Just one question remains; who is it? I think I know. The bit involving depraved sexual acts in a car park may give it away!
