Ty Lewis is ecstatic when the school coach recruits him for the football team. Unfortunately, Ty's Uncle Gus, his guardian since the death of Ty's parents, insists the boy has no time for sports. He has to earn his keep by scrubbing toilets for Gus's cleaning service.
Ty's only relief from his oppressive uncle comes in the too-rare times he can spend with his big brother Thane, a college football star who's headed for the NFL. But when Uncle Gus gets involved with the local mob boss, a man called "Lucy" and Lucy finds out how famous Thane is, things begin to spiral out of control.
As the tension ratchets up, Ty finds himself trapped in a dangerous web. The stakes are high, and one false move on Ty's part could destroy his brother's future.
Using his suspense-writing expertise and his experience in the NFL as a star for the Atlanta Falcons, Tim Green, the author of Football Genius, offers another fast-paced, breathlessly satisfying story.
