Beschreibung

Deadly consequences ensue when an eccentric millionaire, crippled in a tragic accident, hires a fallen football hero (and ex-con) to impregnate his wife. Griff Burkett was a school-of-hard-knocks kid, abandoned by his mother, adopted by his high-school football coach. Under his tutelage, Griff earned a scholarship to play college ball and then a multimillion-dollar contract with the Dallas Cowboys. Griff had a good heart, but his Achilles heel was his arrogance, and his gambling. At the end of his career, deep in debt, a local organized-crime kingpin offers him a chance to resolve his loans by throwing a game. Griff agrees, and walks straight into an FBI sting. After serving time, Griff finds only closed doors. Then he is summoned to the mansion of eccentric millionaire airline owner Foster Speakman. Speakman, a recluse since a car accident left him crippled, is impotent. He offers Griff half a million dollars to impregnate his wife Laura, discreetly, and with manifold rules. One of which is, if Griff succeeds, he will leave town and never see his child as long as he lives. Griff has few options. He's still hounded by Detective Stanley Rodarte, who organized the gambling sting, and seems set upon ruining Griff's life. Griff has little means of earning a living, no family, and few friends. So he agrees - only to quickly realize he's been set up.

Hilfreichste

Wenn überhaupt, dann gekürzt

ist eines der wenigen Hörbücher auf das ich hätte verzichten können. Es ist voll im Schema der ganzen Brown Bücher, die Handlung vorhersehbar, also keine Überraschungen, was die Spannung sehr mindert. Wenn man es unbedingt hören muss, dann in gekürzter Form. Gelesen ist es ganz o.k., rettet das Buch aber auch nicht wirklich. Die Beschreibung des Liebespaares mit endlos langen Sexszenen, ist mehr als öd und in einem Krimi vollkommen unnötig
