Behind the Game by John Sealey is a tale of love and hate exploring the heartaches, successes, failures, passions, intrigues, drugs, and match fixing.

Two strong characters are drawn together by a common ambition to build the biggest financial and management empire at the highest level of sport.

However, sudden and tragic circumstances cut deep into their relationship, inextricably drawing them apart to the point that they become bitter enemies.

Two potential tycoons full of testosterone and ambition play out their rivalry, reaching a climax that will ultimately destroy one of them.
