Chasing the Game featured in The Guardian

Guardian articleI’ve written an article published in The Guardian about the true-life crime that sparked the narrative behind my new novel Chasing the Game.

The colourful, in-depth feature describes the theft of the Jules Rimet (World Cup) trophy in London in 1966, as well as dramatic events in Rio in 1983 when the trophy was stolen once again, never to be recovered.

The full article in The Guardian, titled ‘World Cup mystery: what happened to the original Jules Rimet trophy’ can be found by clicking here.

Another feature I wrote about the 1966 theft was published in the London Metro newspaper – ‘Holding the 1966 World Cup to ransom: The curious theft of the Jules Rimet trophy’ can be found here.
