How many young men wake up one day and decide they want to kill, or have to kill? Fighter, Soldier, Gangster, Killer is a fast-paced, powerful new novel that encompasses the spectrum of human emotion as it takes the reader on an unforgettable ride through London's underworld. "If you have illusions about gangland life being all smart clothes, fancy cars and the bad guys getting what's coming to them, think again. In reality, life in the underworld - particularly in London - is dirty, ruthless, and sordid. Make no mistake; you can trust only a chosen few faces, and even then you ask if you've done the right thing."After discovering a talent for boxing, the novel's protagonist, Michael Lewis, leaves home, against his father's wishes, to forge a career in the army. From there, he tells the story of how he forged bonds of friendship with his fellow officers who would become his best friends. When he learns the father of one of those friends is a notorious London mob boss, it is already too late for Michael. He recounts the often harrowing, sometimes humorous tales of the struggle to free himself from the life he never wanted. "It goes without saying that to be a man means you have to be brutally honest about what you've done with your life and how these actions have impacted on others. Michael grabs some opportunities and lets others slip away. However, the most important of opportunities he did indeed grab with both hands: to win the woman he loved and to be rid of his enemies."

Book Description AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. FSGK is a story told by a young man who s life journey took him through a boxing gym and the army to surviving a horrific personal ordeal and recovering to go into business for himself, setting up his own nightclub. He tells how he overcame a spate of bullying to become a schoolboy boxing champion. How he overcame a nervous disposition around women - stemming from his mother walking out on Michael and his father - to become a sensitive and considerate lover. But most importantly of all, how he overcame a personal tragedy to avenge his loved ones and become one of the most revered members of the London underworld. After discovering a talent for boxing, he left home to forge a career in the army against his father s wishes. From there, Michael tells the story of how he forged bonds of friendship with his fellow-officers, who unbeknown to him at the time would go on to become his best friends in the world. In particular he describes how he befriended Pete Miller, who was the only son of one of London s most notorious mob bosses of a recent era. Through that friendship he tells of the lines of respect drawn between him and his father, Ray Miller and how he won the heart of Elizabeth, Pete s sister. He speaks of the ultimate betrayal made by Denny Burns, a fellow officer and would-be friend who pushes Michael to the very limit. He reveals his abhorrence of violence towards women, his altercations with those who threaten his family and future aspirations. Nobody put these to the test more than by the notoriously violent and sadistic Driscoll brothers, a crime family from Manchester. Seller Inventory # AAV9781425922467
