Linehan Saves (Sean Linehan) By Bryan Murphy Bryan Murphy, author and poet, writes a short story about Sean Linehan’s attempt to establish a World Football Sporting event in China. The ever scrutinizing Chinese leaders find two Brazilian players guilty of cheating, and plan on executing them. It's Sean’s job to prevent this, but in spite of his best efforts and even his good understanding of China's clever tactics, somehow things don't work out the way he plans. To make a bad situation worse, he loses his girlfriend — through a message no less. This short story is worth reading, written with a touch of tongue in cheek humor. The ending comes as much a surprise to Sean as well as the reader. Author Murphy has also written other works certain to entertain readers who like his style, such as: “Breakaway”, “Goodbye, Padania”, first in a series of e-books featuring Daria Rigoletti, “Linehan’s Trip”, “Murder by Suicide”, “Heresey”, and “Postcards from Italy”.
