But if you're a football fan (and even if you're NOT) you're going to love this great read. Fast-paced, it's got the right mix of good guys, bad guys, evil rich guys, mafia/thug guys, retired Miami Beach jewish bookies and a good selection of spoiled and overpaid football players. Something for everyone. Here we are in the middle of football season and if you enjoy a thriller novel with football as the backdrop, then "Paydirt" is perfect for you.
Paul Levine has written a career-full of tremendously enjoyable books, located in and around South Florida. Much like Carl Hiassen and Laurence Shames, Levine combines action, suspense, laughs and beautifully crafted characters who come forth with some of the best dialogue you've ever read. If you haven't read any of Paul Levine's work before, you don't know what you're missing.
"Paydirt" is a really fun-filled read that works well, especially in the middle of the football season.
Two years later he is broke working as a chauffeur and bookie and still mourning his losses. When a known mobster comes to Bobby with a bet he knows he can win the trouble begins and to get out of it and win his family back Bobby has to do the unimaginable.... fix the Super Bowl.
Paydirt was one of those books that has characters that stay with you long after the book is finished. I so wanted to know more about Bobby and his family. The story was a fast and engaging read. I loved the way Levine built up the suspense about the super bowl while still keeping the story believable. This is a highly recommended read for anyone who loves a great fiction read. I am definitely a new Paul Levine fan.
