Conrad Dobler, 10-year NFL veteran, 3-time Pro Bowler and Author of Pride and Perseverance touts it as "A book which flows and reads quickly. Fictional? Sure it is ... if you don't believe this can or has happened, then you are living in the dark ages.“ World Record-Holder and former Harlem Globetrotter Wayne Clark calls it ”Fascinating ... I found myself immersed in an incredibly believable world which left me no choice but to seriously consider the unthinkable." 13-year veteran NBA referee Tim Donaghy, Author of Personal Foul, proclaims that it's “An action-packed thriller whose sinister plot is closer to reality than many would want to believe. An absolute must-read for every sports fan.” "Chuck's work is always spot-on, but this novel is groundbreaking. A gripping story with unforgettable characters that you'll wish would never end,“ declares two-time Olympic Medalist John ”Louie" Ehrensbeck.
