Description - Donkey Punch by Ray Banks
With the barbed-wire leash of parole freshly clipped from his throat and his PI business an unpleasant memory, Cal Innes is looking forward to continuing his job as caretaker at Paulo's Lads' Club. But a prodigal boxer, Liam, needs someone to go with him to his first major amateur tournament in Los Angeles. That someone is Cal. Cal's minding job swiftly turns into something dangerous, with rumours of a rigged competition. As Innes's codeine habit and Liam's temper grow out of control, the land of the free doesn't seem quite so free and easy anymore.
