#13: Bluff City Brawler by Heath Lowrance and Jack Tunney

A palooka accidentally kills a mobster in a bar fight, and goes on the run; naturally, he doesn't run quite far enough in Bluff City Brawler, a brawny entry in the Fight Card ebook series.

I have, by and large, enjoyed this compact, unassuming series of books harking back to the dime novels of old.  I selected this one because of interest in the author and found that it hit all the right beats (so to speak) as our protagonist brushes up against cold-blooded henchmen, gold-hearted women, craggy-faced managers, and straight-arrow cops (among other archetypes).

Enjoyable for fans of old-fashioned adventure and crime stories.  I bought this for my beloved Kindle and read it quickly.
