Doherty's War & Against the Ropes

"AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR TERRENCE MCCAULEY WHIPS UP A FAST-PACED PULP THRILLER REMINISCENT OF THE CLASSIC GANGSTER MOVIES OF OLD. "

1918 -As a corrupt patrolman in New York City, Charlie Doherty had the ward bosses of Tammany Hall and other political cronies to watch his back. But in the hell-storm that became known as the Battle of Belleau Wood, only his rifle and his training keep him alive.

A world at war. A lone marine fighting to survive.

Fast-forward to 1925 where pugilistic prowess is discussed anywhere and everywhere. On the tough streets of New York City, boxer Terry Quinn is on the rise. The heavyweight title is within his grasp but the gangsters pulling the strings in the fight racket have other ideas and will do whatever it takes to get Quinn in line.

Hard answers to hard questions drive a story that isn't going where you think it is and make for one heck of a ride you don't want to miss.

"Terrence McCauley's "Against the Ropes" is yet another fantastic offering from the Fight Card series, an incredible series of hard-edged, gritty fight stories. This one takes place a generation earlier than many of the other Fight Card stories. It's the roaring twenties and New York's Tamany Hall crowd wants their fighter to get the next shot at Dempsey and the title. They will stop at nothing to guarantee their boy is next in line. And, he's not Terry Quinn, he of the brutal fists who came out of the orphanage to learn boxing and wants his own shot at the title. "

"Though I'd read several "Fight Card" entries already, that's not how I came to "Against the Ropes." I first encountered Terry Quinn, Terrence McCauley's very interesting tough-guy hero, in the "Thuglit 1" collection. I was impressed. So it came as a pleasant surprise to find that Quinn was the star of a "Fight Card" outing. It delivers on all counts: great atmosphere (here we have Roaring Twenties New York City), character (Quinn's blend of physicality and smarts is just right), and action (the ring scenes are done as well as you could want for a series devoted to boxing). The other big treat I got was to find that there's another Quinn adventure. If you liked this, you'll surely like "Prohibition" -- I dived into that one straight away."

"The pace is quick, the action intense and Quinn's fate is pulled off with feeling. Hard answers to hard questions drive a story that isn't going where you think it is and make for one heck of a ride you don't want to miss."
