Super Bowl Fix?
by Tad Hutton
About this Book
Four attempts are made to sabotage the 2013 Super Bowl.
Will the drunken Indian succeed with his last war-ride, or will seven federal and state agencies bring him down? Given the expertise of some agency personnel, early bets are on the Indian.
Well, how about the two billionaires who try to fix the game so they can scam fellow money-bag Sheldon Adelson? Vic Diamond's "adopted son" is a middle-aged accountant with a whacky Chinese bodyguard. He may have what it takes, if indeed there is a fix on.
Oh, and don't forget the hacktivists. "Anonymous" may want to watch Beyonce, but what then?
Finally, does a mysterious player have a "Golden Parachute" which allows him to leave the game with a bundle?

Tad Hutton's sixth novel, Super Bowl Fix? is hilarious. This satirical comedy is not even about football, just its venue.
The 2013 Super Bowl is a great opportunity for a couple of billionaires to embarrass Sheldon Adelson. They fix the game and relieve the casino mogul of a few tens of millions of dollars. The trigger they use for this gambit is a sarcastic, low-level accountant named Larry Cole. All he's got to do is change his name, travel to Macao, and invade enemy territory while he runs his bets.
Meanwhile, back in Louisiana, Radio shock-talk host Ted Bart finds out on air that one of his listeners is going to sabotage the Superdomenot just the football game, but the dome itself. Whether this sabotage plan is directed at Beyonce, foreigners, or rich people in general is unclear, at least to everyone but Baldy Scales. Baldy is a Choctaw Indian getting ready for his last ride to take coup, to avenge his ancestors, and to gloriously shatter his failed life.
And, of course, the Beyonce halftime show is sure to bring out the conspiracists from their hidey-holes. Given the over-management and under-performance of the Superdome's infrastructure, the Beyonce producer, Deron Youens, may have to step in and save not just his show but the game itself.
And how about the infamous hacktivist group, Anonymous? Why would they be involved in disrupting the bowl? Do they have a connection with a player? After all, beneath the zany conspiring and strategizing, is there a player involved with his own "Golden Parachute"?
A tangled web of hilarity, gambling, love, and even a bit of redemption follows this crazy comedy from start to finish.
