When does the End Zone Justify the Means? The Los Angeles Leopards and the Portland Pioneers are on a collision course toward the Super Bowl Championship. One team is led by a take-no-prisoners head coach; the other by a cerebral, slow-and-steady coach who has been thrust into the spotlight because of a tragedy. A tense showdown is about to unfold before the world's football fans. But along the way to the championship game, something bad happens: the very integrity of the game comes within a yard of ruin! In his thrilling new work of fiction-Between the Lies- Hall of Fame Coach and New York Times best-selling author Marv Levy takes us on a journey through the NFL like we've never seen before. Through the eyes of a memorable cast of characters, many of whom are based on real football players, coaches, general managers, and owners, we get to see professional football from the inside. And we get to see the game's underbelly, where rules are bent or broken, lies are used as promises, and the integrity of the game hangs in the balance. Between the Lies is filled with the kind of intimate knowledge that only a Hall of Fame coach could possess. It is a must-read for fans of the NFL and for all of us who ever wondered what goes on the inside the sanctity of the locker room. This book, of Sports Fiction, follows Coach Levy's New York Times Best-Selling autobiography-Where Else Would You Rather Be? Marv's infectious personality shines through every page. You will laugh out loud, curse out loud, and cheer out loud!

About the author (2011)

Marv Levy has always been unlike any other football coach. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate-and holder of a master's degree in English history from Harvard-he has combined brains and brawn in a unique way. After coaching in the college ranks at Coe College, the University of New Mexico, the University of California (Berkeley), and the College of William & Mary, Coach Levy won two Grey Cup championships with the Mondreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. He then worked his way through the NFL ranks, eventually leading the Buffalo Bills to four consecutive Super Bowl appearances. He was named Coach of the Year twice, in 1988 and 1995, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2001. His legendary good nature and grand sense of humor are frequently on display in popular television beer commercials. His biography, Where Else Would You Rather Be, reached New York Times Best-Seller status in 2004. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Mary Frances. This is his first work of fiction.
