Publisher's Summary

This fast-paced, compelling and chilling account, is the deeply moving story of a three-time Kung Fu World Champion. With fascinating insight into the traditions of China's martial arts, it documents the abusive upbringing that turned a four-old child into a hardened, professional killer. From China to Europe and across the Mediterranean, we follow Tony as he becomes an elite bodyguard, protecting some of the world's most powerful people. Following personal tragedy, Tony's extreme discipline and the philosophy of his art is quickly turned. He begins to use his skills for illegal means and highly destructive, bloodthirsty pleasure. Eventually incarcerated in Cyprus, Tony hits rock bottom. Through the visits of a stranger, he is introduced to the reality and life-changing power of Jesus Christ. Though the prison walls may fold him, he finds himself a free man. This is just the beginning of a complex and fascinating testimony.

One of the most inspirational Christian book!

The book is fantastic and reminds me of Nicky Cruz (Run Baby Run)where the person who was deep in darkness (in this case in a horrible Cyprus prison) have so great meeting with Jesus Christ through Michael Wright, a preacher, who decided to spread the Good News in a Cyprus prison, that he have became a Christian. Not only this, he also set example for other prisoners and helped them change their lives. The author in addition shows how easy is to get trapped into "a good life" and focus on material things such as house, career and others", the trap where many Christians fall and how difficult is sometimes to get back to the right way.
I love also inspirational passages from Bible for example "..if Jesus sets you free, you will be free indeed" and many others.
All this is supported by a great narrator. I had listened to this book maybe 10 times and still love to return to it. It is so inspirational! You will love it and it will change you to be a better Christian and a better person

Life Changing

This unique account of Tony's story has deeply impacted my life and propelled me into a sober reflection on my own life as a believer. I highly recommend that every Christian reads/listens to this story.
