Catacombe by Victor D. Ponten


When a gambling syndicate offers to clear his debt, footballer Jermaine must do everything to keep his life from falling apart.

When his gambling addiction leads to financial ruin, central defender Jermaine, a player from the lower divisions of professional football, is tempted to give in to an offer from a Chinese gambling syndicate. Jermain already has difficult relationships with a shifty father and the mother of his child, who he has disappointed too many times already. Will Jermaine betray his club, his teammates and himself by throwing the relegation match?
