A redemptive story about wrestling not only works--but succeeds. Kevin Kenerly narrates Dundas's stunning debut novel superbly, bringing to life a story that engages the listener from its opening moments to its conclusion. In 1921, disgraced former wrestler Pepper Van Dean, who is working the carnival circuit, is lured back to the sport. He soon finds himself navigating a world of gangsters and graft. Whether Kenerly is describing the pace of a match or focusing on more personal moments, his performance complements Dundas's memorable narrative and dialogue. While many listeners will relish the vivid training scenes, others will enjoy exploring the seedy underworld of professional wrestling, reveling in Kenerly's performance. D.J.S.
