Publisher Description

The Fix is the most explosive story of sports corruption in a generation. Intriguing, riveting, and compelling, it tells the story of an investigative journalist who sets out to examine the world of match-fixing in professional soccer.

From the Introduction
Understand how gambling fixers work to corrupt a soccer game and you will understand how they move into a basketball league, a cricket tournament, or a tennis match (all places, by the way, that criminal fixers have moved into). My views on soccer have changed. I still love the Saturday-morning game between amateurs: the camaraderie and the fresh smell of grass. But the professional game leaves me cold. I hope you will understand why after reading the book. I think you may never look at sport in the same way again.

Very Interesting Rad

This book made for fascinating, if not depressing, reading. Mr. Hill has dug deeply into the world of game fixing in soccer (football) and his findings paint an alarming story that all fans of the game should know. It's an easy read, a feather in Mr. Hill's hat because the subject matter is complex - certainly so complex that many police forces haven't been able to reveal what Mr. Hill reveals here.
