    "For fans of F-1, GP3, Indi car racing"

    This is a very enjoyable mystery. Just as Dick Francis brought the whole horse racing industry to the reader through his wonderful satisfying mysteries, so Simon Wood lights up his mysteries with open-wheel Grand Prix racing. Both authors are able to people their books with characters that are familiar and in their heroes, people we would like to hang out with. Some violence, it's hard to have a murder mystery without it, but without graphic sex and violence which tends to slow down the plot.

    I had a little problem with the narrator as his British accent was so strong I couldn't understand some words. I notice he is also the narrator for the 2nd book in the series HOT SEAT but I will solve it by getting the Kindle book first and then the Audible book and put both on my Kindle Fire so I can read along with the narrator. It is sort of like have captioning on for British movies, I don't miss words that may be important.

    I look forward to reading this authors earlier works. This is so well paced and interesting.

    "Loved this book"

    I've read several of Simon Wood's books in the past and enjoyed them. But, I'm not especially into cars or car racing, so it took me by surprise just how much I loved this book. The insider look at the racing world was fascinating. The characters were believable. The plot may seem pretty straight forward at first, but watch out for those twists and turns!

    I don't want to give away too many details, but there is a scene near the end, where our heroes are in peril, that it so well-written, I was almost crying for them. And it was probably made more intense by hearing it verses just reading it. I kept thinking, "There is no way they can escape from this," but, well, you'll have to listen to find out if and how they do.

    I think it says a lot about a series if you finish one book and immediately want to pick up the next one. I'm on my way to download book two, Hot Seat, as soon as I'm done with this review.

    I also liked the narrator, who did a good job of distinguishing the characters and inhabiting Aidy's persona.

    I would say if you like car racing, listen to this book. But even if you don't, it's a great story and well-worth checking out.
