Overview

A ghetto social worker, moonlighting as a heavyweight fighter, Duffy Dombrowski, knows the street, the ring and the meanness this world can throw in relentless combinations. This time around he may be the only friend Howard Rheinhart’s got right now. “Hackin Howard” bullied all through high school, got the last laugh when he went on a killing spree. Sure, slicing up a couple of big men on campus might’ve been overkill payback for the wedgies and the constant torment, but Duffy understood. Now, years later Howard has been paroled and after some copykat slayings reminiscent of 20 years ago shock the same town, everyone wants to know where Howard is. Only Duffy knows and but the heavyweight is busy training for the biggest fight of his sorry boxing career while dealing with this year’s model of the town’s bullied kid, some ‘roided up karate instructors and an underground drug distribution ring. Duffy believes Howard is innocent but he’s the only one and he’s got to prove it before they both wind up being bled out on the side of the road like the mounting victims. Can he pull it off? Let’s just say he’s got a fighters’ chance.

Editorial Reviews

Author of A Killing Front and A Final Judgement - Michael A. Black
“Pure delight. The sharp-edged humor peppers you like a boxing master’s jab, and the poignant undercurrent of theme delivers with the power of the left hook. Duffy Dombrowski is a major new contender in the world of private-eye fiction.”
Anthony Award-nominated author of Copper River - William Kent Krueger
“There’s nothing technical about the terrific knockout that Tom Schreck delivers to readers in his latest novel, TKO. Tom Schreck is a contender for funniest author working in the crime genre today.”
Author of Trigger City and Big City, Bad Blood - Sean Chercover
“TKO is fast-paced, authentic, and funny as hell. Tom Schreck delivers the frit and spit, blood and bruises of the fight game with rollicking good humor and real compassion for the underdogs among us. Social worker and journeyman boxer Duffy Dombrowski is a workingman’s hero, and I want him in my corner!”
The Voice of Champions - Michael “Let’s Get Ready to Rumble&# Buffer
“Get ready to rumble with lovable losers, misguided misfits, and a disgustingly adorable dog”.
