Overview

In the empty, sun-baked landscape of the Texas Panhandle, two cold-eyed renegades exchange briefcases to complete a deadly bargain. In one case, neat stacks of hundred-dollar bills mean a brand new life for a single, vicious man, in the other, a small, silvery object means instant death for innocent millions halfway around the world. To these ruthless predators, Armageddon is just another deal, betrayal and brutal murder are just good business—and as the star defensive back for the Texas Outlaws is about to discover, love is a weakness that can get you killed.

In RUFFIANS and TITANS, NFL insider Tim Green electrified readers and won critical acclaim with his unique blend of gridiron action and no-holds-barred suspense. Now he ups the ante in an intricate, riveting thriller of a sports hero abruptly plunged into a bewildering maze of greed, passion, international intrigue, and sudden, shocking violence.

CODY—for years he's been the Outlaws' number-one assassin on the field, wreaking havoc on the opposition with the lethal precision of a professional. When an IRS auditor ends up in the morgue, Cody's killer instinct takes on a whole new meaning. But is he a hit man ... or a fall guy?

JENNY—Cody's gorgeous, willful wife, has an insatiable appetite for wealth, celebrity, and excitement. She's sexy, she's seductive, she's got big plans ... and when she swore to love Cody till death they did part, it seems that's exactly what she meant.

MADISON—Beautiful and brilliant, Madison is one of Austin's top defense attorneys. She's fighting her vengeful husband for custody of her son, she's fighting to help Cody clear his name ... and soon she'll be fighting for her very life.

STRIKER—A CIA contract agent who doesn't hesitate to kill in cold blood, Striker stalks a shadowy labyrinth of espionage, treason, and nuclear terrorism. He's the middleman in an arms deal that means a life of luxury for him ... and grisly death for anyone in his way.

From the football field to the criminal courts, from the seedy motels where spies meet secretly, to the lush playgrounds of the privileged and powerful, OUTLAWS drives forward with all the inexorable momentum and nerve-searing suspense that have made Tim Green one of the hottest players in the thriller game.

Meet the Author

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.

    Good read

    Well written and a good story. This book is hard to put down. Lots of typos, but worth the effort.
