Synopsis

Striker 1: Sudden Death by Nick Hale

A thrilling combination of top flight football and international espionage. Meet Jake Bastin - talented teenage footballer, son of England's top coach and last line of defence against international terrorism - he is Striker. Jake's dad has been posted to Russia to train Igor Popov's multi-million-pound all-star team. No expense has been spared to lure the best talent in the world to St Petersburg, including American goalscoring sensation Devon Taylor. But people are being killed - a football scout, a journalist and an eco-scientist are all murdered within days of one another. And Jake's dad is always at the scene of the crime...Is the Russian team a front for some terrible conspiracy? Can Jake help stop the killing spree? And could his own father be at the heart of the corruption?
