Journalist Cayne Sola's ambition knows no bounds - and not even the most blood-hungry Flex fighter can match her fierce determination. She wants a big story on the games - and she'll get it...
A billionaire several times over, Ellis Mtumbo Shaw has everything money can buy - except fame on the Flex field of combat. And one untested drug puts that within his reach...
Warrior. Infiltrator. Upstart. Their fates will intertwine - and be decided - in the bloody arena of the Muashi Flex. And if they survive, their story will become legend...

This was a very delightful, action-packed read with a little philosophy thrown in. Though the book doesn't mention it, it seems to be a prequel to The Matador series that he wrote in the 1980's (yes, I enjoyed that series too), it's set in the same universe. With 2 sets of main characters, neither of whom are villains of the story, heading on a collision course somewhere down the line, you don't know who you want to come out on top. He keeps you guessing to the last exciting page.
