About Everything on the Line:
The year is 2043. God and Satan are dining at a cute little Italian trattoria in Purgatory, when Satan challenges God to a wager: At stake is whether Good or Evil will prevail in the world. Both antagonists will choose someone on earth to compete in a winner-take-all athletic competition. If God’s choice wins, Good will prevail forever. If Satan’s choice wins…
They select tennis as the ideal crucible in which to have this ultimate mano-a-mano sporting test of physical skills and inner strength.
Throughout the novel (which takes place in Florence, Venice, Rome, New York, Florida, Ohio, Paris, Barcelona, Melbourne, and Wimbledon), Italian wunderkind Ugo Bellezza (God’s choice) and American prodigy Jack Spade (Satan’s) battle both opponents and their own personal demons—and become the two greatest players in the history of tennis—until, in the final chapter, they clash in a titanic battle at Wimbledon, a cataclysmic, touching, and surprising dénouement in which (with everything on the line, literally and figuratively) the eternal battle between Good and Evil is ultimately decided.
About the author:
Bob Mitchell has been a certifiable sports nut since birth. Passionate about sports—as a fan, a coach, and a player—he is a devoted student/scholar of all major and minor sports, lettered in three sports at Williams College (soccer, squash, tennis), and has taught tennis professionally. Had his mother not “accidentally” tossed out his entire baseball-card collection when he left for college in the fall of 1962, he would now be retired on his own Mediterranean island, reading Proust in a hammock and being hand-fed grapes by his large, attentive staff.
Bob is the author of three novels, all of which are, naturally, about the profound relationship between sports and life. Match Made in Heaven, a tale of golf and human frailty, is in its second printing (from Kensington) and is available worldwide in six languages and in audiotape (Brilliance) and e-book (Kindle) formats. Once Upon a Fastball (again, at Kensington) is a tale of baseball and history and has been optioned as a feature film to Nash Entertainment, a successful Hollywood production company. Everything on the Line, a novel about tennis and the forces of Good and Evil, is available as an e-book (Untreed Reads) and an audiobook (Audible). He is presently working on a fourth novel, Masaccio’s Gift, and a collection of short stories, A Slut Nixes Sex in Tulsa. (Official Website)
