Also pleasing was the lack of foreign owners and the presence of players agents whoose stars have risen in the modern football era.
Alex Carter a premier league footballer witnesses the cold blooded murder of his friend and mentor. The victim is Roy Bennett a former player who had lived a life similar to George Best.
When a career threatening injury forces Alex onto the sidelines. A teammate confides in him that he has been paid to throw a match by a gambling syndicate and the man who arranged this was Roy Bennett.
Soon Alex finds his life and his nearest and dearest in immediate danger as he is dragged into a personal crusade to stop the men who are destroying him and the game he loves.
Anyway on to the review and I did thoroughly enjoy this book. The only problem is that I was trying to work out the club and it did seem very much based on a "red" club in the North West of the UK ! One where the manager has just retired. But never mind.
I thought the story line was very good - as I said it's quite topical now. Characters were very well drawn and the story does drag you in and you start to feel for the characters. I didn't know the author before reading this and, to be honest, I bought it because it was so cheap. More than worthwhile though and certainly as enjoyable as many books costing three or four times as much
Highly recommended and I shall be searching out more books by this writer
I read 'Chameleon' thinking that Josh Hammond would be a main part in this as well. Wrong!!!
I read Fogarty and finally realised that Vastrick Securities was/were the main 'character'.
I read 'Final Whistle' and Vastrick have disappeared. Talk about getting me confused!
Personally, I hate football and this was a problem for me. I ended up skipping loads of pages and just read the plot.
Had this plot been based on something that I like, it would have got more stars.
I'm not keen on football and had to push myself to finish this one, hence I'm giving 3 stars only (have given 5 for others by same author).
The thriller element is there and that's why I bought it as I've enjoyed J Jackson Bentley's other books enormously.
If you have no interest in football, you will probably struggle with this one as I did.
