The next time he dies...will be the last.
Can a battered pit fighter save the woman he loves before his heart gives out for good?
Horace "The Hammer" Harkness is a gene-modified pit fighter twenty years past his prime. He loves the life of screaming fans and thundering theme music, but too many injuries and resurrections have wrecked his heart. If he loses one more match, game over.
Now his big comeback is in deep, deep trouble. If he fails, how will he repay all the money he borrowed to finance this fiasco?
And then there's Lilly, the aging exotic dancer who might just care about this broken down bruiser, if only she didn't have a closet full of her own demons.
In a world of blood-drenched circuses, corporate oligarchy, and fleeting fame, can a battered pit fighter outsmart the Russian cyber-syndicate before they exact revenge on Lilly? Or will he die trying?

"Take WWE and MMA, amp the violence to a bone-breaking, body-busting eleven, and you've got The Hammer Falls. But wash away the bloodstains and you'll surprisingly find yourself clobbered by camaraderie and heart." - Warren Hammond, author of the KOP series and Denver Moon
"Fast-paced, action-packed, and full of heart. The Hammer Falls will have you praying Ridley Scott gives this one a home on the silver screen. He and Heermann are the only two capable of delivering the perfect balance of gladiatorial action and high-stakes science fiction." - Joshua Viola, award-winning editor of Nightmares Unhinged and Cyber World
"A body slam of high-tech mayhem... Travis Heermann delivers one gut punch after another in this science-fiction TKO." – Mario Acevedo, author of the Felix Gomez detective vampire series
"There are books that pack a punch, and then there's The Hammer Falls. With pugilistic, pit-fighting ferocity—and a surprising human core—Travis Heermann throws science fiction into the squared circle and watches it writhe in excitement. Grab a ringside seat and hold on tight." - Jason Heller, Hugo Award-winning author of Strange Stars and editor of Cyber World
"Travis Heermann's THE HAMMER FALLS is a raucous, entertaining, action-packed riot. Like his characters, Heermann punches hard from beginning to end, a skilled storyteller who knows exactly what he's doing. THE HAMMER FALLS reads like pure pulp--but like Philip José Farmer, Dashiell Hammett, and the other pulp masters, Heermann brings real heart and depth to his characters. Amidst the heavy-hitting violence, there's care and comedy and endearing sacrifice. Do not miss this book." - J.L. Forrest, author of the Songs at the End of the World series
