More About This Book

Overview

'Fight like a man, or die like a slave.' Brooklyn Marshall used to be a policeman in London, with a wife and a promising future ahead of him. Then he accidentally killed a rioter whose father was a Member of Parliament and had him convicted of murder. To ease the burden on the overcrowded prison system, Brooklyn was sold into slavery rather than incarcerated. Now, he's the "Mean Machine", a boxer on the slave prizefighting circuit, pummelling other slaves for the entertainment of freemen and being rented out for the sexual service of his wealthier fans. When Nathaniel Bishop purchases Brooklyn's services for a night, it seems like any other assignation. But the pair form an unexpected bond that grows into something more. Brooklyn hesitates to call it "love"--such things do not exist between freemen and slaves--but when Nathaniel reveals that he wants to help get Brooklyn's conviction overturned, he dares to hope. Then, an accident in the ring sends Brooklyn on the run, jeopardizing everything he has worked so hard to achieve and sending him into the most important fight of all-the fight for freedom.

    Very intense and gritty!

    Counterpunch is, without a doubt, one of the best books I have read in this genre.
    Just a few words in, and I was totally hooked! That happens rarely, even with authors I love unconditionally. So effin' intense!! I felt what Brooklyn felt - every heavy or uplifting thought, hopes for his freedom crashing.. Voinov led me so masterfully through all the pain, guilt and passion Brooklyn experienced, I was left in awe.
    Nathaniel is the weaker character 'cause we see him only in glimpses through Brooklyn's eyes. I believe he has a bigger potential than we saw, but I liked him nonetheless.
    One of the main things I love and have come to expect from Voinov is the portrayal of real human behaviour in difficult situations and smart characters that make decisions with reason.

    I strongly recommend this book.
