Black Hammer

By Gordon Landsborough

Sep Jason, one of the best fight reporters around, is heartbroken. Fiona Hartagen, daughter of the head of a gambling mob, has left him. Or so he thinks …

World War II veteran, Philip Squeak, is worried about Jason. Known as his right-hand man, Squeak, the veteran, as he is called, does all he can to track Jason down. Someone has to talk some sense into Jason, and the veteran is the only person who can do that.

Liberty Jones, a rising young black heavyweight dubbed the ‘Black Hammer’, is a sensation rocking the world of boxing. As he was discovered by Jason, Jason had invested his time and interest in the boy. He knew that Liberty was going to be a sensation in the world of boxing for a long time yet.

And that is where Jason was when the veteran found him.

When the veteran delivers news that Fiona was kidnapped, Jason steps up to his old role. A fighter in his old days, Jason knew every trick there was to know. But journalism was where he wanted to be.

But things are more complicated than Jason anticipates. The urgency to find Fiona steps up when he realises that the thugs he captured and had locked up have escaped and are out to get him. They have Fiona and now they are out to get him.

Hoodlums that Jason and the veteran are going to have to fight hard against if they are to win.

Liberty finds himself fighting inside and outside the rung alongside his great friend Sep Jason, top-line fight reporter on the New York Clarion. Together they face the greatest fight of their lives to solve the mystery of who is the mastermind behind the snatch, and why…
