Ty Lewis is ecstatic when the school coach recruits him for the football team. Unfortunately, Ty’s Uncle Gus has other plans for him – namely, scrubbing toilets for Gus’s cleaning service. Ty’s only relief from his oppressive uncle comes in the too-rare times he can spend with his big brother, Thane, a college football star who’s headed for the NFL.

But when Uncle Gus gets involved with the local mob boss, a man called “Lucy”, and Lucy finds out how famous Thane is, things begin to spiral out of control. As the tension ratchets up, Ty finds himself trapped in a dangerous web. The stakes are high, and one false move on Ty’s part could destroy his brother’s future.

“With plenty of dialogue and plot twists, former NFL player Tim Green’s latest novel works well as a full-cast interpretation … Lanny Freshman’s reading makes Uncle Gus appropriately dislikable, and Bryce Humphrey brings out Ty’s vulnerability and likableness. Thane’s voice has a cocky assuredness and warmer tones when he interacts with younger brother Ty. Acting as principal narrator, Green’s reading keeps pace with the action.” — Booklist, January 1, 2010
