Slaughter in the Streets: When Boston Became Boxing’s Murder Capital – BOOK REVIEW

The most recent release from author Don Stradley is a jab of boxing with an uppercut of true crime. Slaughter in the Streets has just enough of each to keep you wanting to come back for the next round. It covers a range of criminals from those that committed crimes out of necessity to hardened criminals that just wouldn’t die. With each chapter covering a new criminal/boxer that you haven’t heard of yet it is hard to put this book down.

Berserk: The Shocking Life and Death of Edwin Valero – Book Review

Everyone knows that Boxing has a dark side but have you heard the story of Edwin Valero?  Probably not as he is not a well known athlete outside of the boxing realm and its not a well known case of true crime either.  Don Stradley takes you on a fast paced journey of the battle to be a recognized boxer from Venezuela to his fall from grace.  its a story of intrigue and murder that will keep you wanting to flip the pages.  I am not a big boxing fan and I can count the amount of times I have watched a boxing match on a hand or two but this book was riveting for me.
