Los Angeles, murder, gangsters, boxing, and romance . . .
Battling with mobster-control boxing in Los Angeles, Detective Marc DeLuca is embroiled in solving the murder of several of gangster Mickey’s Cohen’s night watchmen. His only suspects, an eighteen-year-old boxer built like a mountain and his goddess of a sister. Loser at love, Deluca, falls for the dame which could get her killed.
Twenty-two-year-old Helen Dominic, guardian of her brother, Niko, a heavy-weight champion hopeful, has lived through horrendous suffering in her young life and sworn off men. Faced with the passionate challenge the handsome detective stirs up within her, she must either step in the ring or forfeit the bout.
When the murderers threaten more than Cohen’s watchmen and come after Helene when she butts into the investigation, Marc is forced to admit his love and goes after the thugs before Helene ends up as a splat on the ring canvas.
