"A powerful tale of vengeance, rife with pounding action and colorful, complex characters. One Too Many Blows To The Head is a first round knock-out!"
--Stephen Jay Schwartz, LA Times bestselling author of Boulevard
"One Too Many Blows to the Head feels like a long-lost pulp you find in a favorite bookstore. A delicious mix of classic hardboiled grit and the heart-heavy world of film noir, it's a one-sitting read that sends you back to a lost time of fight halls, Chicago boys and last chances." --Megan Abbott, author of Bury Me Deep and Queenpin
"Boxing and noir once went hand in glove, but you don't see many boxing novels anymore, and that's a shame. Here's one that dredges up all the blood and spit and sweat and money of the fight game, and wraps it around a tough noir storyline full of revenge and dark secrets. Kohl and Beetner get it exactly right." --Steve Brewer, author of Cutthroat
"Razor sharp debut from noir partnership Beetner and Kohl. From its first savage punch, the dark world of organised crime and boxing grips and refuses to let you go. Highly recommended." --Nick Quantrill, author of Broken Dreams
From the Author
One Too Many Blows To The Head marks the debut collaboration of authors JB Kohl and Eric Beetner. This taut and gritty Noir takes place amid the seedy world of fixed fights and mob influence. Uniquely, it features two first-person narratives as we follow the intertwining story of the hunter and the hunted.
