The Lovereading4Kids comment

Football mad boys and girls will devour this all-action adventure novel, virtually in a sitting. Hopefully, even the most reluctant reader, just like the author himself was at school, will devour it too. It’s part of Puffin’s ‘Football Detective’ series but each novel is a stand-alone title with each of them mixing the beautiful game with a crime that needs to be solved.

Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Award for the 'book I couldn't put down'.

Synopsis

Foul Play by Tom Palmer

Danny is obsessed with two things: football, and investigating crimes. So when England and City footballing hero Sam Roberts is reported missing the day after Danny saw him being taken, blindfolded, into the bowels of the City FC stadium late at night, he's determined to get to the bottom of it. But is Danny getting into something he can't handle?
