Description - Red Card by Ken Bensinger
'Drawing on hundreds of interviews and on-the-ground reporting in a half-dozen countries, Mr. Bensinger has written a gripping white-collar crime thriller that, in its scope and human drama, ranks with some of the best investigative business books of the past 30 years.' - Wall Street Journal
The story of FIFA's fall from grace has it all: power, betrayal, revenge, sports stars, hustlers, corruption, sex and phenomenal quantities of money, all set against exotic locales stretching from Caribbean beaches to the formal staterooms of the Kremlin and the sun-blasted streets of Doha, Qatar.
In Red Card, investigative journalist Ken Bensinger takes a journey to FIFA's dark heart. He introduces the flamboyant villains of the piece - the FIFA kingpins who flaunted their wealth in private jets and New York's grandest skyscrapers - and the dogged team of American FBI and IRS agents, headed by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who finally brought them to book. Providing fresh insights on a scandal which has gripped the world, he shows how greed and arrogance brought down the most powerful institution in sporting history.
A wild, gritty, gripping, and at times blackly comic story, Red Card combines world-class journalism with the pace of a thriller.
Red Card will be a major film, produced by Pearl Street Films, the production company owned by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.
