The Big Fix
The Hunt for the Match-fixers Bringing Down SoccerBook - 2014
In February 2013, the director of Europol, the European Union's law enforcement agency, made the shocking announcement that 700 international soccer matches had been fixed since 2008, including World Cup qualifying and exhibition matches, with a Chinese criminal syndicate pulling the strings. For the first time, investigative journalist Brett Forrest takes us inside the underworld of one of organized crime's most profitable businesses - a $1 trillion annual international betting market, of which soccer comprises 70 percent. Filled with headline making revelations, "The Big Fix" is must reading for soccer fans and true crime aficionados.
