A SUPERSTAR'S TOUGHEST CHALLENGE...
IS A GAME WITH NO RULES...

Fresh off a championship season, New York Titans' quarterback Hunter Logan is on the winning streak of his life. But when he places one bet that gets traced by the Mob, ruthless don Tony Rizzo strongerarms him into a point-shaving scheme that will net millions for organized crime.

Now, Hunter is trapped in a no-win situation: if he goes along with the Mob, he's risking the lives of his wife and young daughter. With the clock running out and the FBI moving in, it's up to the quarterback to make the call...and all bets are off.

In a dizzying thriller that crosses the finely textured plot of The Firm with the gritty realism of North Dallas Forty, former NFL great Tim Green does it again with a non-stop frenzy of hard-hitting suspense. Like RUFFIANS, his electrifying debut, TITANS tackles football's most controversial issues head-on, while putting readers close enough to the action to feel every bone-jarring hit.

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 LA Times have called Tim Green the "Renaissance Man" of sports.

Tim lives with his wife, Illyssa, and their five children on Skaneateles Lake in upstate NY.

The New York Titans Quarterback Hunter Logan is on the winning streak of his life. His team is doing fantastic and is well on their way for a state championship. Before the championship game Hunter is chased by the mob and is caught in a very bad deal and there is really no good way out of it. The mob leader Tony Rizzo is trying to take over his uncle¿s mafia organization and he thinks the first step in doing so, is getting a quarter back and trying to get him to throw the football game. If Hunter goes along with the mob and the point shaving scheme works, then it will net millions of dollars and he will lose his career and never be able to play football again. Hunter does not listen to the mob then they will come after the ones he loves the most. With the FBI moving in fast, Hunter has to make a decision does he want to go with his career that he has tried so hard to fulfill or does he want to protect his family? He better move fast because time is running out and all the bets are off. This book would be great for people who do not just like sport books.
