Trim: 6 x 9
When fifteen-year-old Frankie Sawyer is discovered lifeless in the school sauna wearing a thermal suit, the ready explanation is that he went too far trying to “make weight.” His coach tells it that way, and in a place where wrestling is the only game in town, his word is golden.
But this kid’s death has teeth. Its bite penetrates more than the sinister nature of a revered leader of boys. And for Jeffrey Maxim, the forty-five-year-old trial lawyer who chases martinis harder than ambulances, it goes deep enough to draw the blood of redemption.
Takedown tells the compelling story of a deeply disturbing crime, its unlikely perpetrators, the people who get caught up in its wake, and, ultimately, of one man—burned out and pathologically cynical—avenging harm while rediscovering his soul.
