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?
