Is the murder linked to the secrets and scandals, scribbled on the scraps of paper that are suddenly appearing all over the school? And with their own friendship falling to pieces, will Daisy and Hazel be able to solve this mystery before suspicions tear the student body apart?

The extraordinary true story of the sporting scandal that has made legal history. In January 2001 the Court of Appeal delivered one of the most remarkable verdicts of all time. In a decision which their own judgement described as 'wholly without precedent', Lord Justices Brown, Thorpe and Parker overturned a libel jury's verdict that had found in favour of the former Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar in his action against the Sun newspaper, awarding him u85,000 in damages. The court made its decision on the grounds that the original verdict had been perverse - one which no reasonable jury could possibly have reached, given the evidence. But the game was still not all over. Grobbelaar took his case to the House of Lords, the fifth time it had come to court and the fourth time Grobbelaar had 'won', up to a point... He was awarded damages of u1. Peopled with larger-than-life, unforgettable characters, FOUL PLAY's action-packed narrative takes us to South Africa, Britain and the Far East. In the courtroom itself, there are scenes - such as the face-off between Grobbelaar and George Carman QC - with all the tension and drama of a Cup Final penalty shoot out. The case reached its legal conclusion early in 2003 and only now can the full story be told. FOUL PLAY is sports writing at its obsessive best. It paints a fascinating portrait of profound corruption at the heart of the game we all like to think of as beautiful.

Foul Play dissects the age-old subject of cheating in all its absurdity. From plain old doping to claiming a marathon victory despite having driven the middle section of the race, from match-fixing to diving for a penalty - cheating in sport is as old as sport itself. There are plenty of well-known cases of cheats being found out in sport: Ben Johnson, for example, was stripped of his 100m Olympic medal after a positive drugs test; South African cricketer Hansie Cronje was banned from all cricket for life after admitting involvement in match-rigging; rugby union recently found itself having to deal with the "bloodgate" scandal. However, there are myriad other examples of bending the rules more subtly: pressuring the referee, demoralising an opponent with mind games, or shirt-pulling. But what constititues cheating and where do we draw the line? Are some sports cleaner than others? Is cheating in one sport the same as cheating in another or does each sport's distinctive culture set different standards? Is there such a thing as a sport without sin? Or, indeed, a sporting competitor? This book is not a catalogue of past sporting misdemeanours so much as an investigation into the lengths to which some sports people have gone, and will go, to get the better of others. And also the lengths to which they will not go.

Foul Play is divided into three parts: The first third deals with suspense, mystery, a death-defying illness, and a touching, soon to be aborted, love affair. All the characters in the story have auto-related names, which continues my trademark from my first book, Murder By Proxy, where all the characters were named after intoxicating beverages. The middle of the story tells us how the H.W.B. SOCIETY deals with the pain and suffering of the people who have been accidentally hit with a batted ball or an errant bat flying from a player's hands during major league ballgames. Sounds serious? Yes, it has its moments, but the chapters are also liberally sprinkled with my own special bend of sly humor. Can you imagine Amy Lamborghini, a tall sexy beauty, with a bat in her hands? Numerous conflicts arise in last part of the book, ending with unexpected resolutions and a heart-warming finale that is sure to bring tears to your eyes.

Clinical and Psychological Perspectives on Foul Play examines a wide range of factors that can influence how police determine foul play in possible homicide cases and in other possible crimes. It develops a new theory of uncertainty at micro, meso, and macro levels to explain how law professionals arrive at this decision. Specifically, it examines the extent to which uncertainty in these situations can be influenced by media coverage, family and community pressures, socioeconomic factors, demographic elements of victims, as well as police knowledge and resources. Written for forensic practitioners, this book describes how these professionals can consult with law enforcement on such issues as the staging of crime scenes to mask intent, the initiation of community strategies to find missing persons, and the reliability of behavioral profiles. The latest research from the Foul Play Project and the Missing Persons Project are employed to support the recommendations in this book and to point the way toward further research in this area.
