Foul Play: the second book in this crime fighting series by Tom Palmer

Danny is obsessed with two things: football - especially City Football Club - and investigating crimes. So when England and City footballing hero Sam Roberts is reported missing the day after Danny saw him being taken, blindfolded, into the bowels of the City FC stadium late at night, he's determined to get to the bottom of it. But is Danny getting into something he can't handle?

He is a coordinator of the Reading Partners consortium, works with The Reading Agency, Booktrust and the National Literacy Trust, and has been the official writer for the Premier League Reading Stars scheme for five years.

Review:

"Credited with turning book-phobic boys into page-turning maniacs"
(one of their 50 of the best holiday reads for 2008) -- Sunday Telegraph, 29th June 2008

"Ideal for introducing the reluctant reader to books through sport"
-- Scotland on Sunday, 15th June 2008

"an excellent fast-paced detective novel" -- The Times, June 14th 2008

"thoughtful, straightforward prose" -- Financial Times, 10th June 2008

"written accessibly and with a light touch, this is the kind of story to appeal to reluctant readers as well as established readers - and their fathers too. The first of a Football Detective series, it scores with the precision of a Ronaldo free kick"
(Children's Book of the Week) -- Sunday Times, May 4th 2008
