Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

The essential novel for Euro 2012.

Football is the cruellest game.

Legendary footballer and England Captain Kev King takes no prisoners - on and off the pitch. He'll stop at nothing in his quest for fame, lifestyle and silverware. But as all who fell for Kev's 'charms' in PREMIERSHIP PSYCHO will remember, Kev's got a temper - a bad one. Now unjustly accused and losing his place in the England's 2012 squad, Kev's hurt, rejected and publicly betrayed. Short of offers, he signs up with some two-bit side in the Caucasus, pushing deeper and deeper into the country's political intrigue. But can Kev really swap nations and make it to 2012 after all? And can he keep his temper in check long enough to clear his name?

A darkly hilarious tale of football, vengeance, winning and losing. GROUP OF DEATH will be loved by all those who can think of nothing except Euro 2012 - and by all those who are dreading it entirely.

Praise for Premiership Psycho:

'The more of a c*nt Kev King is, the more I like him. How the f*ck is that possible? ... Very good writing. Best book since Kill Your Friends. Bring on the film.' Plan B

'Taylor is clearly a very accomplished and witty prose stylist... Premiership Psycho is deeply satirical and horribly entertaining.' The Mirror

'As with all good satire, this dystopian vision inspires laughter and loathing in equal measure.' Independent on Sunday

'Magnificent... Hilarious and heinous.' Sport Magazine

'Funny, dark and a huge mickey-take on celebrity. Brilliant.' The Sun
