The third Leo Guild novel.
In need of work, Guild gets involved in the boxing game. Hired by a promoter to bring his boxer back into the fold, he gets beat up for his trouble and informed it's all a game. The promoter stiffed him.
Then he, against his own judgment, agrees to guard the box office for the big fight, unaware that the promoter has hired a thief to steal the money to avoid paying the fighter. Oh, and shoot Guild.
