Development Pitch

Hanzlik’s Vietnam stories, which are interspersed as Hammer’s flashbacks, are some of the most compelling and vivid war memoirs in some time, especially the story about the secret prison where Hammer ends up for refusing to pay a bribe. Hanzlik’s writing flows effortlessly and smoothly, seamlessly emulating the endless miles Hammer’s Harley rides during the Poker Run, and I felt a genuine sense of regret when the Run finally ended. I’m looking forward to reading more of this author’s work. Ride Hard Die Free is most highly recommended.
