CRIMINALELEMENT.COM IS FEATURING A NEW EXCERPT FROM THE UPCOMING FIGHT CARD RELEASE, A MOUTH FULL OF BLOOD . . .
Fight Card: A Mouth Full of Blood is the seventh action-packed crime adventure in the Fight Card series by the pseudonymous Jack Tunney (available Monday).
“Jack Tunney” is a pseudonym for several authors who write hard-hitting crime stories inspired by the great sports pulps of the 30s and 40s. They are short, action-filled throwbacks to a time when the pages ran red with great fight action in and out of the ring. Each book is written by a different author, but released under the unifying psuedonym of Jack Tunney.
A Mouth Full Of Blood continues the story of young Jimmy Wyler after his narrow escape from Kansas City at the end of Split Decision (the third of the Fightcard books, also written by Beetner). Relocated back to Chicago where he grew up in an orphanage under the guidance of Father Tim, the boxing priest, he is trying to put his life back together. A young boy he knows, Leo, is having trouble at home and Jimmy wants to help out. The trouble is deeper than Jimmy considered, however, and he must enter the underground world of unsanctioned boxing matches, using the skills in the ring he swore he’d never use again.
