Book Description


See all titles by Richard Hoyt.

For most of the planet, the World Cup is bigger than the Super Bowl, the World Series, and Michael Jordan combined, and this year the U.S. is playing host. Hoyt uses the occasion to throw maverick ex-CIA agent James Burlane in harm's way again. Now freelancing under the delightfully ridiculous nom de guerre of Major Sid Kartoum, Burlane is hired by the hidebound and fiercely political governing body of world soccer to stop a terrorist who is whacking star players. One of Hoyt's trademarks is a wonderfully quirky sense of humor that failed him in Kartoum's last outing, "Marimba", perhaps because there simply isn't much that's funny about the drug trade. But Hoyt, clearly a knowledgeable fan of soccer, uses the astonished reactions to America of foreign athletes, referees, team owners, and even Prince Charles to restore the laughs this time out. "Red Card" is l a terrific read that will also instruct a lot of U.S. sports fans in the finer points of the world's most important sporting event.
