The murder with a hidden motive
A secret conspiracy behind the killing
A crime reporter chasing a scoop
It’s July 1966 – and England is football crazy as fans cheer their team on to win the World Cup. There are millions who’d kill for a ticket to the final in London’s Wembley Stadium. Then café owner Sergio Parisi is found murdered in his own kitchen – and his World Cup Final ticket missing.
As Evening Chronicle crime reporter Colin Crampton chases down the story, he finds a link to the theft of the World Cup’s Jules Rimet trophy. And Colin has a race against time to prevent an even deadlier crime.
