"...Tobin astutely looks at the varying possibilities that would have led to Gatti's death.

Such an approach intelligently and respectfully piques interest in a real-life mystery that has left Gatti's fans and family in need of both solace and satisfactory answers."-Kirkus Reviews"[Tobin is] an intelligent writer and a thoughtful person, tender even, who writes with authority...I know he's invited me to a place I'd not have accessed without him."-Bart Barry,"Tobin's purpose is welcomely, deliberately, indefinite.

Instead of a Shakespearean tragedy, or yet another bloody chapter of boxing's wider legacy...Tobin's document becomes a meditation on the human condition..."-Jack Porter, The SportsmanArturo "Thunder" Gatti hung up his gloves in 2007, closing the book on a boxing career that bordered on the mythical.

Or was he killed by his new wife?In Killed in Brazil?, Jimmy Tobin recounts the dramatic events surrounding Gatti's tragic demise and shines a light on what may have happened on that fateful night.
