5.0 out of 5 stars Wrestling Thriller from 70's, 5 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very enjoyable thriller. Ideal for wrestling marks/fans. Reminded my of Budd Schulberg's The Harder They Fall which is a classic boxing/gangster inspired story from the 40's in a similar vain. He has used all his vast background knowledge to great effect. Read it in 2 days and will now buy book 2 and book 3, when it's out. TV version could also be very good if done right. Not as good as Eoin Colfer but better than Derek Landy!!!
