Publisher's Summary

From a number one New York Times best-selling author comes a gripping thriller novella about a college football player's investigation into the unsolved disappearance of a local legend who seemingly vanished into thin air.

Forty years ago, Herschel Ruggles, the most legendary player on the Mighty Johns football team at Draven University, disappeared after scoring a record-breaking touchdown.

Instead of tossing the ball to the referee after his near-mythical athletic feat or celebrating with the nearly 25,000 spectators in the stands, Ruggles continued running, ball in hand, into a passageway that led deep underneath the field to the Mighty Johns’ locker room - and was never seen again.

His disappearance has mystified the community for decades...until another player - Merlin North, a brilliant physics major - helps break Ruggles’s record for kickoff returns. After that, North turns detective and becomes fixated on discovering what happened to Herschel Ruggles.

Investigating Ruggles’ mysterious disappearance, however, will prove unexpectedly dangerous for North, as evidence of murder - and ghostly visions - reveal the truth to be far more stunning than he ever could have anticipated.

Buyer beware

This is a re-release of a 25 year old novella.
An absolute steaming pile of horse shite.
