Getting paid to be hit is one thing. Getting killed is something else.
Duffy Dombrowski is an upstate New York social worker—and professional sparring partner. He’s just accepted a dream job: chief sparring partner for Russian heavyweight contender Boris Rusakov—in Las Vegas. Once in Sin City with his obstinate basset hound and four buddies, however, Duffy learns that Vegas—and Boris—have a dark side, and before he knows it his trip turns into a nightmare. Treated like a piece of meat by Boris’ Russian mafia backers, Duffy befriends a crew of Mexican boxers at the gym. And when he saves one of their sisters from Boris’ clutches, the ensuing fistfight leaves Duffy at a perilous brink.
Now the Russian mafia’s chasing Duffy, a serial killer’s on the loose, and only with help from a surprising source does Duffy have a fighter’s chance of coming out alive.
Quirky characters, rapid-fire dialogue, and nonstop action propel The Vegas Knockout into the sphere of gritty thrillers that hit with astonishing power. Download and start listening now!
