The Hammer Falls
Travis Heermann, author
Too many gruesome injuries. Too many deaths. How far would you go to protect someone who might love you? Horace “The Hammer” Harkness is a gene-modified pit fighter twenty years past his prime, but he knows one thing. He loves the life of screaming fans and thundering theme music, but his heart will no longer regenerate like it once did. The next time he dies, it will be the last. To stage his big comeback in a world of blood-drenched circuses and fleeting fame, he had to borrow money from the Russian mob, and now he's in deep, deep trouble. When the mob threatens his girlfriend, an exotic dancer named Lilly, he takes the offensive against the gangsters, only to land himself in even deeper trouble. On the run from a ruthless foe, Horace must find a way to save himself and Lilly before his heart gives out for good.
