Terrorist murder—in the world's most popular sport!

"A FINE BOOK . . . Hoyt has a fresh invigorating style that grabs the reader immediately."—The New York Times

Millions watch breathlessly as the World Cup, soccer's premier tournament, opens to a triumphant reception in cities throughout the United States. Some players will go home as champions, others in ignominious defeat. And some will not return at all.

"AN ACTION-PACKED THRILLER OF THE HIGHEST ORDER. The writing is taut, the pace doesn't stop, and you don't have to be a sports fan to go for this one . . . Anyone who remembers the Munich Olympics will be swept away by the plausibility of the story." —Romantic Times

"The author has even devised a method of murder never before used in the history of crime fiction." —The New York Times

"Freelancing under the delightfully ridiculous nom de guerre of Major Sid Khartoum, James Burlane is hired by the governing body of world soccer to stop a terrorist who is whacking star players . . . WONDERFULLY QUIRKY . . . A TERRIFIC READ." —Booklist
