Synopsis: This novel contains adult themes and situations. And really bad language. 
                                                                               1972 New York City and a dazed Lenny Long walks away from a crash carrying someone's foot in his hand. He is also searching for the VIP passenger who has somehow disappeared from the back of his overturned van. It's the first day of his new promotion and Lenny has less than twenty minutes to deliver the missing person or a lot of people are going to get badly hurt.

Danno Garland is in Shea Stadium trying to avoid a riot. He's coming to the end of the most successful wrestling card of all time but he's also coming to the realisation that he might not be able to deliver his widely hyped main event. He knows there's more than the eyes of the arena on him and if Lenny doesn't arrive soon, blood is going to be sought. Probably his.

Proctor King nervously watches the show on TV, wondering why his fuck-up of a son doesn't already have the world heavyweight belt in his grasp. Arranging this match has taken Proctor four years of pay-offs, double dealing and bone breaking to arrange. If all that effort has been wasted then he might just have to take him a business trip to New York. 

Lenny, Danno and Proctor. Three men with pieces of the puzzle but none with the full picture.

When they do piece it all together, the 'fake' world of professional wrestling is going to get very real.

From the Author: Even though I have been writing for a long time, and I have written many plays - one story kept coming back to me. It was too big for the stages I usually write for and it was too loud for me to ignore - so I wrote this book to try and exorcize it. 
Little did I know how much fun it would be to write!
I sincerely hope you like the new world that has fascinated me since childhood. The secrets, the money, the shady characters, the phycology, the so called 'freaks,' the turf wars, the pomp, the glitter, the backstabbing and the danger.
I hope you'll come and read about an environment that was as secretive as any in American history. You've probably read about the Irish, Sicilian, Russian and Italian gangs. You've probably seen how they operated. But the bosses in Blood Red Turns Dollar Green were so good and effective at their job it's likely that you never even knew their shady syndicate existed. Until now.
