Mak­ing a change from the man­u­als and the mar­que his­tory books, this en­gag­ing thriller takes on added im­pe­tus when the au­thor shares his knowl­edge of cars with the reader. Au­thor John Rabe is a self-con­fessed car nut and has writ­ten a tra­di­tional ad­ven­ture story around rac­ing driver Kevin Richard­son, who gets in­volved in in­ter­na­tional in­trigue but still man­ages to put in a good per­for­mance on the track.

So, rather than just get­ting in a car and gun­ning it, we are told: ‘The Subaru’s en­gine started im­me­di­ately, the un­even beat of the hor­i­zon­tally op­posed flat four cylin­der en­gine was music to the ears.’ Think about the ex­cit­ing and com­pelling thriller style of the late Dick Fran­cis, but with cars in­stead of horses. Great stuff. DB 978-1-785547-63-8 www.austin­macauley.com Paper­back, 245 pages
