MURDER ON THE ROPES, VOL. 1 A Collection of Original Boxing Mysteries

by | Read by Lee Horsley, Elliott Gould, Lorenzo Lamas, Dan Cashman,

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

All of these original short stories have a boxing angle, but not all involve murder--fight-fixing and robbery are also on the docket. My favorites included Doug Allyn's "Sunlight Shining on Water," about a boxer's use of meditation techniques to deal with tough guys pressuring him to throw a fight, given a low-key reading by Lee Horsley; Thomas H. Cook's "The Fix," a tongue-in-cheek tale about a boxer's career downfall, read with a deft comic touch by Lorenzo Lamas; and Brendan DuBois's "A Winning Combination," about a columnist's growing fascination with boxing, read by Dan Cashman. Fight fans will love this collection, but boxing knowledge isn't a necessity. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
