This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The conclusion of the acclaimed trilogy in which professional wrestling meets Empire, called “a one-of a kind literary offering for die-hard wrestling fans” (

It’s been twelve years since the New York wrestling territory was nearly burned to the ground. Twelve years since millions of dollars were lost because of a single bullet. Twelve years since Lenny Long last saw his family before being thrown in jail for killing Danno Garland. Now, Lenny has walked out of jail a changed man.

Back on the outside, things haven’t gotten any easier. Danno’s death has made the spotlight shine on the world of professional wrestling a little too brightly for the comfort of many. Senator Tanenbaum is leading the charge to shut the whole thing down, while the other wrestling bosses haven’t wasted any time in trying to consolidate their territories and grab new ones. But Danno’s old crew isn’t about to let the other promoters take what is rightfully theirs, at least not without a fight. And, try as he might to get home, Lenny’s role in it all isn’t over.

In this thrilling final chapter of Paul O’Brien’s gritty Blood Red Turns Dollar Green trilogy, it all comes down to Lenny. And twelve years is a long time to think and to plan.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 20, 2017 – The conclusion to O Brien s Blood Red Turns Dollar Green trilogy (after A Shoot) takes a deep dive into the treacherous, dynamic world of pro wrestling. It s 1984, and Lenny Long has been in jail for 12 years for the murder of his former boss, Danno Garland. Now that he s out, he just wants to get his family back and lead a quiet life. It s not to be, though, because he s the boss of pro wrestling s long dormant New York territory, which other wrestling bosses want to muscle in on. He needs a champ to make New York something again, but to Lenny s horror, the local championship title has been transferred to his oldest son, Luke (aka Kid Devine). Lenny must get the wrestlers he needs to succeed at the business, without getting offed by his foes in the process. To the victor goes the spoils, and enough sweat, blood, and tears can lead to unbelievable glory, but power comes at a price. O Brien s whip-smart prose brings the fascinating, often funny world of pro wrestling to glorious life and imbues its players with surprisingly delicate humanity.
