The Crew APPEARANCES CAN BE DECEPTIVE - as Paul Jarvis of the National Football Intelligence Unit is only too well aware. He knows that Billy Evans is no ordinary East End lad made good. He's also a thug, a villain and a cop killer. Jarvis just hasn't been able to prove it- Yet.

So when Jarvis discovers that Evans is putting together a hooligan 'Super Crew' to follow England to Italy, he feels sure he can finally put Evans behind bars - if only someone can infiltrate the Crew and get him the proof he needs.

But nothing is ever that simple. The Crew believe Evans is just out for a full-on riot. Jarvis thinks he's trafficking drugs. But Billy Evans is always one step ahead. He has another plan. And it will be catastrophic for everyone concerned.

    it's been about 15 years since I last read a book on this subject. however, this tale offers an excellent mix to provide the reader with feelings of fear, empathy and loyalty to each of the principal characters.

    Fast paced were i couldn't put it down. You don't have to like football to enjoy this book. Initially felt the ending was flat but not the ending you'd expect.

    Having read some of Dougie Brimson's non fiction books about football related violence (which were also very good) I was intrigued to say the least by this novel. I was genuinely hooked from start to finish and even read bits on my iPhone during my lunch break! Great plot, great characters, great twist. It's on to the next one now; 'Top Boy'. Nice one Dougie
