...Tobin astutely looks at the varying possibilities that would have led to Gatti's death. Such an approach intelligently and respectfully piques interest in a real-life mystery that has left Gatti's fans and family in need of both solace and satisfactory answers.--Kirkus Reviews
[Tobin is] an intelligent writer and a thoughtful person, tender even, who writes with authority...I know he's invited me to a place I'd not have accessed without him.--Bart Barry, 15rounds.com
"Tobin's purpose is welcomely, deliberately, indefinite. Instead of a Shakespearean tragedy, or yet another bloody chapter of boxing's wider legacy...Tobin's document becomes a meditation on the human condition..."--Jack Porter, The Sportsman
Arturo Thunder Gatti hung up his gloves in 2007, closing the book on a boxing career that bordered on the mythical. At long last, he seemed ready to leave the business of blood behind for a long, happy life outside the ring. His retirement was celebrated--boxing's modern gladiator had earned his freedom.
Two years later, he was gone--found dead in a hotel in Brazil under mysterious circumstances. He was only thirty-seven years old. Did he commit suicide? Or was he killed by his new wife?
