The Penalty

Written by Mal Peet

The Penalty Synopsis

As the city of San Juan pulses to summer's sluggish beat, its teenage football prodigy El Brujito, the Little Magician, vanishes without trace. Paul Faustino, South America's top sports journalist, is reluctantly drawn into the mystery. As a story of corruption and murder unfolds, he is forced to confront a bitter history of slavery, and the power of the occult.

The Penalty Press Reviews

* Physical, spiritual - Arthurian, even - this is true enchantment. TES Teacher on Keeper * A blast of fresh air... so strong and vibrant, so passionate... A hugely original and enjoyable work of fiction. INIS on Keeper
