Hammersmith United 2: Angel’s Fist

Enkelin nyrkki

The awaited sequel to the award-winning and bestselling WONDER BOY about the teen sensation Leon Brown—a star in the making!

Leon returns to London for his second year at Hammersmith United Academy, now as a live-in student. With a busy training schedule, Leon is working all hours to stay on top of his game. But he struggles to focus, and cannot shake the feeling of being followed. Soon enough Leon starts to receive threatening messages. Who is behind the blackmail targeting Leon, as well as the club? When Hammersmith United’s first division team’s new player acquisitions aren’t living up to expectations, the junior players, including Leon, are brought in to take more responsibility. In a crucial end-of-season match against King’s Park Angels, the club’s very survival hangs in the balance, and Leon must step up.

Jukka Behm’s ANGEL’S FIST, the second in the Hammersmith United trilogy, follows the bestselling WONDER BOY, a finalist for the prestigious Finlandia Prize and the winner of Topelius Prize. ANGEL’S FIST once again invites readers to the VIP experience of Leon Brown’s football journey, paving the way for the trilogy’s finale, due in June 2025.

With WONDER BOY Behm scored a prize-winning literary goal! Leon’s journey is one of determination, fear, and triumph, resonating with any-one who has ever dared to dream big. Behm offers readers a skillfully crafted exploration of youth, ambition, belonging, and the power of friendship, set against the backdrop of the beautiful game.
