There is a formula to these books that is present in all of them...boxing has to be a part of it, as is the relationship between at least one of the boxers and the orphanage where Father Tim has taught them the "sweet science." The book must also have a culmination fight that cannot be a rip off from "Rocky."
Now imagine writing the above formula, and being perfectly capable of weaving in the Kennedy Assassination to it! The author (all books in the series are credited to the fictional Jack Tunney, but are written by various people) does a marvelous job, in such a short book of helping to tie in so much. Jim and Jake are boxers who fight in 1936 and meet years later when the former is an FBI agent and the other has become Dallas' own "Jack Ruby!" Jim is looking into the kidnapping of an African American boxer and through following leads meets up with Ruby, Lee Harvey Oswald and more. Of course the plot takes Jim near all of the action, and of course the book concludes with a fight that is put on to help people forget about the tragedy.
The author, who chooses to weave in conspiracy theories, does so carefully so that the the theories only enhance the story and do not get in the way, as I feel that did in Max Allan Collins' "Target Lancer." In addition to the plot, and the characters, the writer does an excellent job of making the reader experience the time period well.
Whether you want to read about events (real and fictional) surrounding the assassination, or a good boxing story, or your first Fightcard novelette - "Guns of November" is a wonderful choice!
