Linehan Saves (Sean Linehan)

By Bryan Murphy

Bryan Murphy, author and poet, writes a short story about Sean Linehan’s attempt to establish a World Football Sporting event in China. The ever scrutinizing Chinese leaders find two Brazilian players guilty of cheating, and plan on executing them. It's Sean’s job to prevent this, but in spite of his best efforts and even his good understanding of China's clever tactics, somehow things don't work out the way he plans. To make a bad situation worse, he loses his girlfriend — through a message no less.

This short story is worth reading, written with a touch of tongue in cheek humor. The ending comes as much a surprise to Sean as well as the reader. Author Murphy has also written other works certain to entertain readers who like his style, such as: “Breakaway”, “Goodbye, Padania”, first in a series of e-books featuring Daria Rigoletti, “Linehan’s Trip”, “Murder by Suicide”, “Heresey”, and “Postcards from Italy”. Each one is a unique, enjoyable read and highly recommended.

In this sequel to “Linehan’s Trip”, author Murphy portrays his main man as trying to become good after a lifetime of corruption. Linehan tries, but his job, as a troubleshooter for a world sports body, the setting, a near-future China, and even his very own girlfriend back home, do not make it easy for him, constantly strewing temptation in his way and threatening to stymie his mission to save a group of footballers from a firing squad. After “Linehan’s Trip”, I’m glad to see Murphy finding a lighter touch, and bringing out the comic side of his creation, too.
