Sintesi dell'editore

Ex-Dallas Cowboy Rick Bannion has been through the revolving prison door for drug trafficking and now hunts bail-jumpers. His old friend Jack Brendy has just been busted by the Feds for smuggling cocaine, and when Brendy's wife approaches him seeking a favor, Rick jumps at the chance to help. The favor? - keep the government's sleazy informer off the stand. Unfortunately, when things go wrong, Rick finds himself in the crosshairs of the Feds.

Poor narration harms this story.

First the good news. The story revolves around a former Dallas Cowboy offensive lineman of the 70s, infamous for jumping offsides on 3rd and goal in the NFC championship game, subsequently losing the game and the team's chance at the Super Bowl. (Hence the title.) He was further disgraced when he was convicted of Federal beef soon after. Once again an overzealous US Atty and his FBI minions over reach and over play their hands, providing plenty of fodder and mystery. Its a fun romp through the dark side of Dallas and the Federal Government's manipulation of laws under the guise of the War on Drugs in the late 80s- early 90s.

The narrator gives the main character a Bill Paxton southern accent with John Wayne's pace. I like both actors, but the result is that it comes across like the man is slow witted or brain damaged. Most of the bad guys, both redneck and black are way over done as well. In action scenes the narrator over does every sentance.

AW Gray's Bino series features great narration with perfect timing that enhances his characters and his remarkable wit. When the timing is lost, so is the humor.

Stupid, and poorly written

Wish I had the option to give zero stars. Listened all the way through, hoping it might get better - which wouldn’t take much - but no such luck.
