Carlos Monzon was one of Argentina’s most celebrated figures. A renowned boxing champion and movie actor who enjoyed affairs with beautiful women, he also harbored a secret life of drug use, alcohol, and domestic violence. When his estranged wife was found dead―strangled and tossed from a balcony―Monzon confessed that they’d fought the night before, but he couldn’t remember what had happened. The resulting murder trial cast a long shadow over Monzon’s legacy and launched a decades-long battle between his critics and defenders.
In A Fistful of Murder, Don Stradley explores Monzon’s turbulent life, from his beginnings in poverty to his dramatic rise to stardom, all the way to the case that shook a country―and still haunts Argentina today.
