The Jukebox Kings

(2016)
A novel by

 
 
When Irish Mick Shannon, a hungry young fighter, gets caught by a lucky punch, he loses a lot more than the fight. His manager bet heavily on him, and now they're both in debt to the mob and Moishe Abrams, a legendary loan shark who controls the jukebox business inside Detroit's notorious 8 Mile.
Desperate to pay off their debt, Mick hires on as Moishe's driver, but quickly learns that life in the Motown fast land is a lot tougher than fighting in the ring. Set in Detroit in the early Sixties, the Jukebox Kings follows the wild rise of a young tough who falls in love with black American music, and a talented blues queen ten years his senior at a time when Jim Crow was still the law of the land. It's a violent, street smart tale with a love story that's unforgettable.
