Episode 35 – Slaughter In The Streets

 

For this episode we bring your something new.  We had the pleasure of interviewing the author Don Stradley.  Don can trace is roots back to sports writing and while the books we interviewed him about talk about Boxing it is the True Crime that makes these books really stand out.

We had the great pleasure of reading his book Berserk: The Shocking Life and Death of Edwin Valero and the soon to be released Slaughter in the Streets: When Boston Became Boxing’s Murder Capital.  The interview covers his writing history, these two great Boxing and True Crime books as well as his future plans.

We hope tune in soon and consider purchasing both of these great books.

We will also be running a contest on Social Media two give a pair of these books away so make sure to watch our social media accounts.  All Brew Crime Patreon supporters will automatically get a bonus entry.

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.
