All might be free if they valued freedom, and defended it as they should. - Samuel Adams

In the late 1920ís, the well-oiled machine of capitalist interest ran roughshod over the civil rights of American workers. Blood on the Constitution follows Teddy Albert Gall through the horrific world of brutality, rape, exploitation, and murder that characterised this era for so many whose voices were lost to history. Teddy, ex-marine and talented prize fighter, is drawn into the deadly world of the trade union movement; unions, big business, mafia, and the ranks of the oppressed and the oppressors all struggle for supremacy. Teddy enters the fray, compelled by his noble sense of justice, yet tortured by the fact that he is endangering the lives and livelihoods of those around him... pursued by a psychotic serial hit man and pursuing happiness with the woman he loves.

In Blood on the Constitution, the long awaited sequel to The Ragmanís War, Sukle provides a fascinating and impeccably researched insight into a key period that shaped the America we know today. Its compelling characters and shocking tales are skilfully interwoven, culminating in an unforgettable climactic confrontation.
