Etienne is right, this is a well-written,
"traditional" sort of noir novel. I read this several years ago but had forgotten the title -- I've been scratching my heads for weeks trying to recall it to recommend to the list for this theme of the month.

The dog-fighting world is interestingly described. As I recall from the blurb, Ring is or was a newspaper writer.

I haven't seen any other books by him, but Amazon says he had another, PEREGRINE DREAM.
