 About the Book 

Football promoter Mickey Rossetti never knew who he was or what he really wanted. Until it was almost game over. Combining international espionage with international business and the action-packed arena of American football, Bob Robustellis debutMoreFootball promoter Mickey Rossetti never knew who he was or what he really wanted. Until it was almost game over. Combining international espionage with international business and the action-packed arena of American football, Bob Robustellis debut Cold War-era spy thriller TeamWork delivers a tough-skinned, highly suspenseful addition to the genre that is certain to enthrall anyone who is a fan of hard-boiled fiction, or a fan of the great American pastime of football. For hard-partying, directionless Mickey, growing up the third son of the famous Hall of Famer Benny Rossetti from the New York Giants often seemed as tough as the sport that defined his familys lives. An all-American kid on the outside, Mickey had long been on a straight shot to epic addiction that took a sharp, cocaine-fueled turn for the worse after his failed marriage. However, as he hobbles along at his familys business of promoting American football in Mexico, Europe, and the USSR, Mickey instead finds himself thrown into a game with perilously high international stakes. In TeamWork, fates are conjoined through a decades-long relationship between two spooks of matched skills, and dramatically opposing loyalties. Through a slew of mishaps, Mickey finds himself on the brink of real trouble with the FBI. Enter Pete Martin, a crusty old codger of a CIA operative. When Mickey eventually lands in Moscow on business, Pete is there to keep him under tight reins. Suddenly, the top is blown off of a KGB plot to take over the USSR and likely decimate the world. With a coup to take over the Russian government, an NFL game in Moscow, missing nukes, and a renegade Russian agent, TeamWork reveals that, when it comes to one man, the game may just be far from over. Bringing together business, football, and spooks as the Cold War heats up, this fast-paced, edgy debut spy thriller offers play-by-play thrills, laughs, and game-changing redemption. A non-stop thriller, a breathtaking adventure, daringly original with flawed real characters and real world danger that will draw you in and hold you until the final word.
