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.'
