By Peter J. Uren 208 pages soft cover RRP: $17 + $5 postage in Australia Available from author: Ph 0414 511786 Email: [email protected] Following on from the success of his first two novels, Peter J. Uren has continued with the story of the old mechanic, who quickly realises that retirement is not all it is cracked up to be. In this, the main character returns to help out his son-in-law, while one of the mechanic’s plans come to a crashing halt. The author deals with a number of difficult subjects, not least being the death of one of the main characters in a motorcycle accident. As the creator of the character, even though he was merely a figment of the author’s imagination, he had to deal with some very real emotions, like grief, when he died. But there will be some readers who have had to deal with the death of real people as the outcome of a motorcycle accident. The author could not hope to plumb the depths of sadness that some of you will have experienced as a result. But the point is, riding a motorcycle comes with a level of risk to life and limb that is not shared with many other forms of transport. It does not matter how good a rider you are, or how long you have been riding, motorcycle riding is a dangerous activity.
