Description
When the mob tackles football, it's no longer a game Written with authenticity that could only come from a former NFL player, Denver Bronco Reggie Rivers weaves a page-turning story of how two charming and unscrupulous wiseguys fix an entire season of football games. And no one, including NFL's high-powered security force, has a clue. Praise for 4th and Fixed ?Fix the Super Bowl? I never thought it possible, but 4th and Fixed is so chock full of NFL skinny that it sweeps you along from the field to the front office and makes you believe. It's a terrific insider tale of football skullduggery.? --Frand Deford ?Reggie Rivers is already at the Super Bowl level of mystery writers. His latest, 4th and Fixed, kept me up two nights in a row. I couldn't put it down.? --Charlie Jones, New York Times bestselling author, What Makes Winners Win ?Riveting suspense that makes you think about how vulnerable our major sports leagues are to the wrong element. Rivers takes us inside a world that most fans don't want to think about, and he includes anough twists to keep the pages turning.? --Ken Bikoff, associate editor, Pro Football Weely ?The behind-the-scenes details in 4th and Fixed are so authentic that I found myself wondering if the mob might have fixed games during my twelve-year NFL career. This book is a must read for anyone who has ever wondered how organzied crime might try to manipulate the outcome of football games. I?m eagerly awaiting the movie ? --Mark Schlereth, ESPN NFL analyst
