Boxer, Beetle

Adapted from Ned Beauman’s award winning novel.

Boxer, Beetle: a blood-thirsty, discordant, time-crossing, fish-stinking, gut-churning, heart-swelling, glass-smashing, white-knuckle, tragi-comic buddy-road-trip whodunit with fist fights, Nazis, singing, dancing, boxing and gin... and beetles. In 2011 Kevin, a professional collector of rare Nazi memorabilia is tracking an aristocratic eugenicist and his experimental subject; a foul-mouthed Jewish boxer who disappeared in 1936. But why? And what the hell is that smell?
