Abstract:

For Deputy Chief Constable Bob Skinner, the Thursday night football game at a local gym has been an unbroken ritual for twenty-five years. Players have come and gone, but a hard core remains, with each match a little older, a little slower. When a former player is found murdered in a manner that shocks even Skinner, suddenly the Thursday Legends have more to worry about than aching backs and dodgy knees. Former Head of Special Branch, Alec Smith, made plenty of enemies during a long career, but as Skinner's investigation gathers pace, everything keeps pointing to the Legends themselves. Is the murderer one of them?
