Jaded lawyer Erasmus Jones has been hired to protect the footballing world’s latest protégé – and while it’s a job he may not like, he can’t refuse. Thrust into the hedonistic world of the football elite, Erasmus discovers a sinister underbelly to the beautiful game, riddled with corruption, deceit… and murder.
It’s his most high-profile case yet… and it should be enough. But when the only woman he has ever loved appears, begging for him to help her, Erasmus finds himself caught between two deadly cases: and his professional instincts tested more than ever before.
With mere seconds on the clock, Erasmus must make a choice: put his client’s life on the line, or turn his back on his past. Because there can only be one winner… and the penalty could be death.
Erasmus is working a case to protect a high profile footballer. He's a bit like me and not at all a football fan.
Erasmus and Pete seem to get along great, a good working duo.
It is an interesting story, and in parts you want to keep reading, but there was something in this book that just didn't 'get me. I couldn't engage with the characters, I really don't know what it was, as I say interesting story line, maybe just not for me.
I didn't realise when I started this book that it was Book 2 of 2 in Erasmus Jones series.
