He lives by his wits--and his fists! A fast-reading thriller with an extrasensory twist, told by a rebellious Gypsy boy.
When rogue Gypsy boy Freedom Smith runs into trouble with the law, he strikes a deal with the police: Instead of going to prison for a crime he didn't commit, he'll go undercover -- and underground -- using his incredible strength and boxing skills to infiltrate an evil, high-tech fight club known as The Bear Pit. His mission: to save other street kids from the drug-manipulated death matches the Pit has in store for them. Freedom thinks he can trust his new friend Java Sparrow with his secret life. If only he knew that this high-spirited, upper-class girl has a secret of her own....

Fifteen-year-old Freedom Smith is a fighter, just like all of his relatives who have the "Hercules gene," which leads him to a choice between being jailed for attempted murder or working with a covert law enforcement agency to break up a mysterious, illegal fight ring.
