ALL-AMERICAN MURDER by James Patterson and Alex Abramovich with Mike Harvkey, Peter Coleman by HachetteAudio

Football coaches, players, and fans called Aaron Hernandez unstoppable. His four-year-old daughter called him Daddy. The law called him inmate #174594.

He was a college All-American who became the youngest player in the NFL and later a Super Bowl veteran. He was a star tight end on the league-dominant New England Patriots, who extended his contract for a record $40 million.

Aaron Hernandez’s every move as a professional athlete played out in the headlines, yet he led a secret life-one that ended in a maximum security prison. What drove him to go so wrong, so fast?

Son of a University of Connecticut football hero known as “the King” and brother to a Huskies quarterback, Hernandez was the best athlete Connecticut’s Bristol Central High had ever produced. He chose to play football at the University of Florida, but by the time he arrived in Gainesville, he was already courting trouble.

Between the summers of 2012 and 2013, not long after Hernandez made his first Pro Bowl, he was linked to a series of violent incidents culminating in the death of Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player who dated the sister of Hernandez’s fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins.

All-American Murder is the first book to investigate-from the unique vantage point of the world’s most popular thriller writer-Aaron Hernandez’s first-degree murder conviction and the mystery of his own untimely and shocking death. Drawing on original and in-depth reporting, this is an explosive true story of a life cut short in the dark shadow of fame.

http://ift.tt/2zM2Mic

In a break from your regularly scheduled Total Football programming, here’s an unusual Thursday episode of the United Kingdom’s only football podcast*.

In it, host Thom Gibbs sits down with Opta’s Duncan Alexander to analyse the season so far through a statistical lens.

We look at the table from top to bottom, and put your best questions to Duncan on topics as diverse as Dixie Dean and Xabi Alonso.

Virgil van Dijk’s forthcoming move to Liverpool is explained by the man who broke the story, Jeremy Wilson. And there’s reaction to the appointment of Carlos Carvalhal at Swansea from broadcaster Michelle Owen.

* – may not be factually true.

Episode 16: Antonio Conte launched a bonfire night rocket by The Telegraph

http://ift.tt/2zmgWrV

A genuinely Super Sunday on paper, but did it live up to expectations? The Telegraph’s Deputy Football Correspondent Jeremy Wilson joins Thom Gibbs to unpick the weekend that was.

Spurs maintained their inverse-hoodoo at Wembley while three 1-0 wins for away sides demonstrated that anyone can beat anyone in the middle reaches of Premier League.

Chelsea saw off Manchester United in the battle of the furious managers at Stamford Bridge. Jason Burt speaks shortly after the final whistle to discuss how Conte pulled it off, and how much United are missing Paul Pogba.

Then it’s over to Manchester where James Ducker witnessed another comfortable City victory, and another limp Arsenal performance.

Plus an interview with the director of the new edition of Football Manager, as Miles Jacobson gives us his top tip for avoiding the sack in the frighteningly immersive and wildly popular computer game.
