THE LONGSHOT is no Hollywood boxing story—with an ending as predictable as it is unsatisfying. This is so real you can smell the sweat. It's a gritty look into the world of mixed martial arts boxing from the point of view of a man who knows he's up against an opponent he can't defeat. Mark Bramhall's urgent delivery of the exciting novel turns it into a production listeners won't be able to turn off. Four years ago MMA fighter Cal fought Rivera, the reigning champion. Rivera won through a judge’s decision, but Cal remains the only opponent whom Rivera didn't knock out. Now Cal wants a comeback. Bramhall's punchy delivery is the perfect vehicle for the story of a man who sets out to conquer his own fear. M.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2009]
