Publisher's Summary

Things are looking good for Aidy Westlake. He’s Pit Lane magazine’s Young Driver of the Year, which has earned him a drive in the European Saloon Car Championship. But his good fortune ends at a race car show when he discovers Jason Gates, a mechanic from a rival team, with his throat cut. The murder sets off a disturbing chain reaction - someone is breaking the rules in the ranks of saloon car racing, on and off the track.

Excellent series

This is book Two in the Aidy Westlake series of racing mysteries. I'd recommend listening to book One first because it's simply great, but you can start with this one, just as well.
As I said in my review of Did Not Finish, you do not need to be a racing fan to enjoy Hot Seat. It's a well-written seat-of-your-pants sort of mystery that keeps the reader guessing the whole way through.

There is a lot of intense action in this book, but it's never over the top with sex, swearing or violence. Only what's needed to carry the story forward.

I never like to give away plots, but suffice it to say that Aidy, his grandfather, Steve and his best friend, Dylan get themselves into and out of plenty of pickles. Pay attention, because things are not always what they seem in these books. That's half the fun of them.

I like this narrator, he brings a lot of depth to the characters and makes them easy to differentiate.

Can't wait for the next book in this series.

As good as Book 1 of the Aidy Westlake series

Hot Seat is another excellent murder mystery. Aidy is a race car driver who is better at solving murder mysteries than driving race cars.

Good racing murder story

Simon Wood is a good story teller. This second book of Aidy, the race car driver is almost as good as the first. Not quite as many twists but a good story line that works until the end.

for the race fan

I like the concept of a driver solving mysteries. I was hoping for some more on the track action but you write about what you know right. looking forward to book 3.
