In 1938, Tae Kwon Do began at the end of a wicked poker game in a tiny village in what is now North Korea. Today, the martial art is possibly the most popular on the planet, and Olympic sport practised by an estimated 50 million students and known for its spectacular kicks. Few people, however, know about the art's secret and violent past. The Art of Killing is a non-fiction novel' that takes readers into the lurid dynasties of two men and their disciples - those who invented the martial art and those who developed the Olympic style of the art - in a thrilling and charged narrative.'
