Books by Dennie Wendt
Danny Hooper is a third-division English
footballer from East Southwhich Albion, whose thuggish reputation limits
him to playing the role of enforcer on the pitch, despite his
admiration for the artistry of world-class football from Latin America
and the Continent. After Danny takes his frustrations out on an
unfortunate opponent's tibia, he finds himself sold to the
Rose City Revolution of Portland. But there is more to the trade than a
shocked Danny could ever imagine.
