    Dieses Buch über Perumal, quasi sein Tagebuch, von zwei italienischen Reportern niedergeschreben (Alessandro Righi und Emanuele Piano) ist ganz in der Ich-Form geschrieben und beschreibt das Leben eines Wettbetrüger aus Singapur, der immer wieder (auch große internationale) Spiele manipuliert hat. Es werden dabei auch Details genannt, also nicht nur welche Spiele, sondern auch wer zu welchen Summen manipuliert wurde. Teilweise ist es sehr freizügig erzählt, aber dennoch sind keine neuen Spiele enthalten, irgendwie kommt das Gefühl auf, dass es doch nur bekannte Geschichten sind. Eines wird aber auch klar, Perumal war schon mehrfach in Singapur im Gefängnis und es wird dort auch nach ihm gefahndet, weil er eine mehrjährige Haftstrafe für eine eher dumme Prügelei bekommen hat (das Justizsystem in Singapur kommt nicht gut weg). Er würde alles tun um nicht nach Singapur ausgeliefert zu werden, offensichtlich hat er einen Deal mit den ungarischen Behörden, ob er da ganz die Wahrheit sagt, bleibt offen.

    A gripping book that resonates through your footballing soul. Wilson Raj Perumal could just be the tip of the iceberg. Invisible Dog have done a very good job with the information and I couldn't keep the book down. Gripping would be an understatement. The more you read the book, somewhere in it, you tend to become Wilson, The character. It clearly shows that all is not well within FIFA. As long as betting is prevalent, so will match fixing. End of the day it is a choice between Integrity and dishonesty. A simple choice with wide spread ramification. For any football lover, after reading the book, hand on heart, the game will never be the same!!!

    This was a great look into the dark world of match fixing. But it's a live by the sword die by the sword crime story, which I really enjoy. The writing is above average but the story jumps around a lot so pay attention. This is a great book for anyone who loves crime drama. It's like a game of Jenga because you see Wilson Raj's story build higher and higher and you are just waiting for it to fall. There really is no honor among thieves.

    The best book written on the subject ever. The material on match fixing is fascinating but the life story of the author is equally compelling. I have read the book four or five times front to back.

    Wow, what a page-turner, it has taught me the lesson that I am capable of finishing a book in two days. The unfortunate part is that I will never enjoy watching the beautiful game as I used to, because I now know that there will be a possibility that the results of the match have been predetermined already.
