Criminally controlled international gambling is now center stage on the world scene, accompanied by necessitated match-fixing and leading to massive financial profits for the professionally organized syndicates. Bribery, assassination, and violent social crime are necessary, interwoven partners. This novel lays clear the lucid, intricate details. A budding cricket star is maliciously injured and misses his first tour of England. Forced to change his game, he is assisted by a top USA baseball coach and, following great difficulty, develops a new bowling style previously thought impossible. He becomes an international star. Murder and violence force government and court interventions to clean up the Australian gambling scene. A federal politician becomes an advocate for change and, through intriguing circumstances, is finally elected as prime minister of Australia. This novel is edge-of-seat reading, never resting in realistic detail, unexpected turns, and graphic outcomes. From the first page, it cannot be put down; it is a unique story of compelling dialogue.
