Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows football is a matter of life and death. But this time, it's murder.
Scott Manson is team coach for London City football club. He's also their all-round fixer - he gets the lads into training, and out of trouble, keeps the wags at bay and the press in his pocket. But now London City manager Joao Zarco is dead, killed at his team's beloved stadium at Silvertown Docks. Even Scott Manson can't smooth over murder... but can he catch the killer before he strikes again?

I don't follow soccer but I liked it a lot

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A good mystery. The author did not get so caught up with creating a "who done it" that the ending was impossible to believe.

Great mystery but even better football story

Phillip Kerr's Bernie Gunther stories are grat reads,but I like his other novels even better. As an American who knows more then he needs to know about American football, I learned a great deal about English football and the Premier League. The mystery is very interesting and realistic. Kerr doesn't fall into the nonsense endings so many mystery writers rely on now with over the top unbelievable twists. I hope Kerr does a mystery about American Football there is so much money and corruption to explore.

I don't do football but I loved this

This is really well written and flows with great, colourful language. The crime is not that big a part of this story. I am not interested in football but I found the atmosphere and pace made this book a real joy. The narrator does the whole thing proud.

Say it isn't so Joe

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A believable story

What was most disappointing about Philip Kerr’s story?

A less than engaging hero, card board cutout women,boring clumpety clump plot and the author failed to mention one of Alex Ferguson's other triumphs in extra time the 1983 European Cup Winners' Cup Final and of yes - a real turn off was the mention of the author of the book in the body of a novel.

How could the performance have been better?

putting the the final draft of the book in the circular file

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from January Window?

Did this book even have an editor? So much boring repeated stuff.

Any additional comments?

I gave up just before the end and have no idea nor do I now care who murdered the Portuguese manager. By the time the author was to tell us the answer to the question, this reader/listener had certainly lost interest in the answer. And to think he created Bernie Gunther. I could weap!
