CHARLES "BOXER" GORDON comes by jis nickname honestly -- he once held the record for "the most KOs in Uncle Sam's army." i
Okay, that were thirty-five or so years ago, when he was stationed in Vietnam. Now he's Buffalo, New York's only black private eye, a reformed alcoholic and divorced ex-cop estranged from his son, and scraping by... just.
Still, in his one appearance to date, 2004's "More Than One Way," he proves to be a skilled and methodical detective, a compelling and likable character with his own brand of justice, hired to track down an old army buddy's ex-wife.
