Jerilderie

As we lead up to the release of my next Fight Card novella, The Iron Fists of Ned Kelly, I thought I’d share some of the wide array of books already released about Ned, covering nearly every aspect of his life. This one is from my collection and it’s an edited version of the famous Jerilderie Letter, a 56 page letter narrated by Kelly, but scribed by Joe Byrne – where he told his side of the story and laid down the law as it were. The letter was quashed by the authorities.

Here’s the blurb from the back.

“I have been wronged…”

Ned Kelly was a dangerous man – a thief, a bank robber and a murderer. Yet when he was sentenced to hang, thousands of people rallied to save his life.

In the Jerilderie Letter we hear Ned in his own words. Wicked, angry, vividly descriptive – this is Ned’s justification to his countrymen of how it all transpired.

Guns of November

The latest Fight Card title, Guns of November, (with Joseph Grant – Fight Card: The Last Round of Archie Mannis behind the Jack Tunney moniker), has just been released, and it sounds like a winner to me.

FIGHT CARD: THE GUNS OF NOVEMBER

November, 1963…

GUNS FINALSent to Dallas by Attorney General Robert Kennedy to investigate the disappearance of a boxer connected to a major Civil Rights violation, FBI Special Agent Jim Gregory finds himself desperately trading punches with those plotting to change the course of history.

Kidnapped, beaten, tied up, and blindfolded, young boxer Jimmy Lee Williams knows his situation is dire. Nicknamed Guns for the relentless firing power of his fists, Williams isn’t going to go down without a fight. However, this is no typical 15-rounder… and the clock is ticking toward disaster.

Mixing with a disparate group of Cuban exiles, the Mafia, the FBI, the CIA, and corrupt Dallas Police, Gregory’s search for Williams takes him into the heart of the JFK conspiracy. In the Carousel Club, owner Jack Ruby – Gregory’s old Chicago boxing opponent – introduces the undercover FBI agent to his many shady contacts, including a young, ex-Marine and Communist defector named Oswald… a man with unusual intelligence and connections to both the FBI and the CIA.

With disaster looming, the latest Fight Card novel, Guns of November, is a two-fisted take on the tragic events you thought you knew, but never imagined…

It also sports a fantastic cover by illustrator Carl Yonder.
