About the Book

I know what you’re thinking. Yea. I know what you’re all thinking. You’re all thinking that this is another murder mystery. Right? Be honest but that is what you are thinking. Some mafioso serial killer is on the loose whacking quarterbacks. Well I survived and I played quarterback. That is why I disappeared for thirty five years. I never got killed like twelve of my football friends did! Somehow I slipped through the cracks and made it to seventy one which is my age as I type these words. I suffered three concussions, a bruised sternum, a torn rotator cuff, three broken noses, two nose surgeries, one mouth surgery, three torn ligaments, another stomach surgery, five knee surgeries including two 3D printed ceramic artificial knee surgeries, sixty stitches in various sundry locations on my face and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The titanium in my legs sets off alarms when I walk through the metal detectors at airports. “Just a flesh wound” as so eloquently stated by Monty Python in the British comedy Holy Grail. I have twelve friends who are deader than doornails just like Marley in A Christmas Carol. But I digress let’s get to the story.

About the Author

Annie and Mike are happily married with four sons and living large in Colorado. Mike Boryla is not a nom de plume. That is the author’s real name. Mike is a playwright, stage director, attorney, movie producer, and stage actor. Ecstatic that he has reached seventy-one years of age, which is eighteen years over the average age of NFL players of his generation. Recently, he passed a six-hour neuropsychological exam with flying colors and is handling his post-traumatic stress disorder quite nicely. Mike had a head coach at Philadelphia who had a cot in his office where he slept away from his wife and two children six days a week for seven months a year. Mike rejected this completely. For twenty-five years when his sons were at home, he refused to work evenings or weekends when he worked for powerful law firms. His most important goals in life were to be a good husband to Annie and a great father to their four sons. His family all live in Colorado and Wyoming. They are all very close and call themselves Team Boryla.
