Excerpt from The Reversal (photo credit: Wendy Werris) The lighted sign outside of The Brig depicted a boxer in a ring, his red gloves up and ready. It was an image that seemed at odds with the name of the bar, but Bosch knew the story behind it. As a much younger man he had lived in the neighborhood. He knew the sign with the boxer was put up by a former owner who had bought out the original owners. The new man was a retired fighter and had decorated the interior with a boxing motif. He also put the sign up out front. There was a still a mural on the side of the building that depicted the fighter and his wife, but they were long gone now.
