RONNIE O’SULLIvAN Framed a page-turning debut crime novel from the uk’s most charismatic sporting genius.

Frankie James is a young man with a lot on his shoulders. He always swore to his mum he’d keep his younger, wilder brother out of trouble, but when Jack turns up early in the morning, covered in someone else’s blood and with no memory of the night before, it seems there’s no way Frankie can make good on his promise. With Jack on the hook for the vicious murder of a gang boss’s daughter, Frankie knows his brother has been given a death sentence. To prevent that from happening, he needs to find out who framed Jack and why, but that means entering the sordid world of bent coppers, ruthless mobsters and twisted killers that he’s tried all his life to avoid getting sucked into.

ronnie O’sullivan is a five-time winner of the World Snooker Championship and is widely regarded as the greatest natural genius ever to play the game. His previous books, Ronnie: The Autobiography of Ronnie O’Sullivan and Running: The Autobiography, were bestsellers.
