Book excerpt: Manchester England is famous around the world. It's been that way for a while. These days, it's all about football and music, but back in Victorian times it was factories, slums and social reform. But in between such ups, there's been some downs, such as in the 1990s, when Manchester City Council was desperate for improvement. They came up with a striking idea - bringing the Olympic Games to Manchester. It didn't so difficult. All it would need would be to convince the International Bidding Committee that Manchester was the place to be for the foremost sporting spectacular in the world. That would mean choosing the city in the North West of England over such marvellous cities to visit as Sydney, Barcelona and Beijing. It's tough competition, and residents like Mickey start feeling the pain. Not just pressure on funds, but people he knows start being made redundant. Then people die. This is getting serious! Because he also has his friend Jim to protect, and his girlfriend to save. It's a deadly race!
