Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Tomato Can Comeback

Tomato Can Comeback (Fight Card)
By Henry “Hank” Brown
ASIN #B008PD59Z0
Price $2.99
Rating 5-Star

“Entertaining, and hard hitting action.”

Tom Garrick had been an upcoming contender until his last fight, which left him so bloody the sports writers tagged him the Tomato Can. After the loss, the ex Army corporal, a veteran of the Korean Conflict, uncharacteristically drops out of the fight game for a period. But now he’s back, and working with a new manager, his old Army platoon sergeant, Lester Kolodzei, and the Tomato Can is looking for opponents.

However, things aren’t as they appear. There is something bothering Tom Garrick, and it might be enough to end his new boxing career. Sports writer, Gil Swartz, of the Detroit Free Press takes an interest in the boxer and becomes involved in the personal side of the tough corporal, and begins to unravel the mystery. But he may be too late to save the boxer’s career.

This was another top notch Fight Card entry, but taking a different slant than previous stories. Gil Garrick the sports writer not the boxer narrates it, so we don’t see into the mind of Tom Garrick. I felt this angle worked very nicely, and gave the reader some mystery to the boxer’s actions.
