Read in June, 2010

Published in 1958, The Professional is the best boxing novel ever writen. Heinz was a friend of Hemmingway and Elmore Leonard was his protege`. He developes his characters through dialogue, rather than through flowery prose that puts people to sleep.

The sad ending in no way takes away from Heinz' masterpiece.
