Book Rating: 6.5/10

Complex, suspenseful, and highly descriptive!

Dangerous Score is a sports mystery that takes you into the day-to-day running of the Kettering Town Football Club and delves into all the action, politics, and corruption that goes on behind the scenes.

The pose is detailed and clear. The characters are dedicated, resourceful, and supportive. And the plot is ultimately about friendship, family, deception, violence, murder, romance, and football.

Dangerous Score is an intriguing novel that spotlights all the intricacies involved in organizing, advertising, and running a football club and even though I felt there was a little repetition and a slower pace to the second half of the novel it certainly highlighted Bearcroft’s incredible knowledge and enormous passion for the sport.
