Life Dean Fokoli lives there full time but he's on the run from his own troubles Two men racing forward to collide like a knocko. A good old pulp style detective yarn Typical to the genre the two good guys and most of the supporting characters are tainted yet we still pull for them This one is about a guy avenging the death of his brother who was killed in the boxing ring We follow him as he moved up the dark underworld of boxing in Kansas City of 1939 looking for who put out the hit and fixed the fight Meanwhile the detective chasing him barely one step behind is no angel himself having been a dirty cop Internal Affairs is chasing him looking for a reason to fire him from the force Lots of violence again typical to the genre Lots of dead bodies drinking smoking and criminals Plenty of it twists and a surprise ending Good Read
