GO DOWN SWINGING by Dan McGarry

£5.00

What happens when the thing that defines us is taken away? Karl Johnson is a Boxer at the top of his game having recently unified the Middleweight Championship of the World, but events outside of his control dictate that he is forced to quit. He struggles to find a purpose in life and his subsequent mental disintegration brings up a heart breaking past with tragic consequences. Paranoia, anxiety and memory-loss combine meaning the route to the truth is not an easy one.
