The New York Times bestselling author and former NFL pro has been hailed by USA Today as a writer who "tackles thrillers with aplomb." Now Tim Green returns with another tantalizingly spun novel of love, death, and intrigue, bringing back glamorous Madison McCall, who combines cunning and conscience like no other attorney character in fiction today. Clark Cromwell is everybody's all-American: a fair-haired fullback, a reverent Christian but a tough player. He's a veritable poster boy for the NFL's flourishing religious movement. In contrast, Clark's team mate Trane Jones is the NFL's worst nightmare: the league's best running back, but with the personality of Dennis Rodman and the criminal record of a common street thug. Jones and Cromwell share nothing more than the same backfield. Until they share the same woman.
Annie is ravishing and naive, as supple in spirit as she is in form, the answer to Clark Cromwell's prayers. As Clark oversees her transformation from a disappointed actress into a devout soul mate, their plan for happiness seems perfect. So when Annie inexplicably jumps from his bed to another, no one is surprised when her next resting place is a slab in the morgue.
The murder weapon, a bloody golf club, is traced to Trane Jones, and only a promised favor to the team's owner can convince Madison McCall to defend the controversial running back. Besides the overwhelming evidence and Trane's history of violence, the case is clouded by an R-rated sneaker commercial featuring Jones as a misogynist killer. Testing her lifelong belief in the presumption of innocence, Madison digs into the case, only to find the next best suspect is...Clark Cromwell.
Driven by the explosive taboos of race and religion, DOUBLE REVERSE sprints to a mind-boggling finish that will absolutely blindside Green's readers. But, after all, that's what they've come to expect.
Tim is the New York Times bestselling author of more than a dozen highly successful suspense novels, including his newest national bestseller, FALSE CONVICTIONS (2010), as well the non-fiction New York Times bestseller, THE DARK SIDE OF THE GAME which was featured on CBS's 60 Minutes. His last few novels have all been national bestsellers hitting the charts at #22 and #30 on the New York Times Bestseller list. While his first five novels used professional football as their backdrop, his most recent works have drawn more on his experiences as a lawyer exploring the themes of ambition and revenge.
Tim is also the author of a memoir entitled A MAN AND HIS MOTHER: AN ADOPTED SON'S SEARCH which was featured on Entertainment Tonight, ABC's Prime Time, and in People Magazine. The movie rights to this memoir have been purchased by CBS for a movie of the week. In addition, he writes a series of chapter books for young readers set in the world of professional sports. The first novel in this series, FOOTBALL GENIUS, was released in 2007.
His writing career began at Syracuse University where he was a Rossman Scholar for Humanities, a Syracuse Scholar, an NCAA Top Six Scholar, Phi Beta Kappa, and co-valedictorian of his class. While studying English Literature, Tim became acquainted with the renowned minimalist, Raymond Carver, and had the opportunity to study under the award-winning writer and professor, Tobias Wolff.
During his studies, Tim also played football for the Syracuse Orangemen with a career that included consensus All-American honors as well as his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2002. Most recently, Tim received the NCAA's prestigious Silver Anniversary Award, which recognizes distinguished former student-athletes on the 25th anniversary of their intercollegiate athletic career, that have gone on to achieve personal distinction since their graduation. In 1986, he was selected in the first round of the NFL draft by the Atlanta Falcons where he was a star defensive end for eight years. During his NFL career, Green began his thirteen-year career as a commentator for National Public Radio, wrote columns for USA Today, and received his law degree with honors at Syracuse University. Because of his accomplishments both Sports Illustrated and the Los Angeles Times have called Tim Green the "Renaissance Man" of sports.
