Description

Danny is obsessed with two things: football - especially City Football Club - and investigating crimes. So when England and City footballing hero Sam Roberts is reported missing the day after Danny saw him being taken, blindfolded, into the bowels of the City FC stadium late at night, he's determined to get to the bottom of it. But is Danny getting into something he can't handle?

Reviews

Praise for other books by Tom Palmer: 'Tom Palmer is a kind of missionary sent by the Premier League ... a clever book' -- Daily Mirror 'Gripping and witty ... Shaking Hands with Michael Rooneyis quite simply the perfect soccer yarn' -- Robert Swindells, author of Stone Cold
