A secret conspiracy.
A corrupt soul.
A psychopath returned from the grave.
And the Beautiful Game, fanatically followed by millions, all over the world.


Slightly disheveled, self-proclaimed investigative journalist Lukas Novak inadvertently disturbs a hornets’ nest when following up a mysterious blog’s match-fixing allegations at football giants Mancunia FC. When the wrong people start getting hurt the hunter becomes the hunted and Lukas finds himself a non-person, on the run from a GBH charge. Unsure who and what to trust Lukas stumbles upon answers that he hasn’t been looking for and that change the course of his investigation and his own life forever.

On the surface Match Games aims to be a ‘Nordic Noir’-style, hard-hitting, real life, dark and gritty mystery thriller, set in Northern England. Beyond the surface it describes the struggle of one man against virtually every evil today’s society has come to accept as the norm, where the bully wins every time, where the masses are so dumbed down by the dilution of culture and so called freedom of the press that true values are in danger of being lost forever.
In his laborious struggle against the current, conventional and emotional ties holding him back Lukas emerges from near death to overcome his own nemesis.
