I have my own sense of morality and I live rigidly by it.
Sure, it may not be the usual code of ethics you find in chivalrous tales of yore but to my mind that’s not the point. If honour truly comes from within, how can you live by someone else’s code?”When Russian billionaire oligarch Roman Janokovic buys an American Football club, he hires Simon Ritter to keep stories from appearing in the newspapers.But the players are constantly being caught in bed with hookers, having affairs and snorting cocaine at parties.If Ritter can’t get them under control, the sponsors will pull out, causing the club to implode.
And that means Ritter will get killed by the Russian’s mafia.It’s his first day on the job and before he’s even started work, someone’s shot one of the club’s groundskeepers in broad daylight outside a café downtown.How can he keep the story under wraps when the press are already on the scene? How can he solve the murder and save the club? And how can he do it all before the Russians decide he needs to be aggressively retired?Jack Hayes is an author and journalist living in London. His books include the best-selling Blood Red Sea and Dead Man Rising.Overtime brilliantly mixes big-time sport and big-time money to create a roller-coaster read.
