Praise for One Night in Turin

Pete Davies is incapable of writing a dull sentence... outrageously entertaining

Daily Post

Exhilarating ... full of drama, full of its own reckless and compelling logic

Indpendent

Riveting, surging, passionately written. The book which made it possible for "football literature" to mean something other than daft ghosted biographies
