Way to Dusty Death by Alistair MacLean

Book Description

Reissue of the classic tale of high-octane adventure set in the world of 1970s Formula One, from the acclaimed master of action and suspense. Johnny Harlow seems to have it all: he's good looking, desired by women, and envied by men; he's also the reigning Formula One world champion, the poster-boy for the world's most thrilling and richly financed sport. But a recent devastating accident has driven him to drink. And now his beloved sport is changing: too many things are going wrong in too many races. And when Johnny is the apparent cause of the latest accident, he decides the time has come to sort things out. But what he finds has nothing to do with cars, and some people will do anything to prevent him from discovering the truth...

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A seat-of-the-pants entertainment which never cruises at less than a 100 miles per hour, doesn't take more than two to read, and deals with the crushing activities of Johnny Harlow who when first met has eleven Grand Prix wins to his golden name but has become a suicidally destructive driver - in fact seems to have killed another man on the Coronado team and permanently lamed the daughter of the man who owns it. But then Johnny seems to be closely monitored for his drinking, while on the other hand someone is trying to kill him before he is eliminated from another race - not the real contest which is against a Corsican brotherhood of kidnappers, blackmailers and dealers. Overexerted if you stop to think of it but the chances are that you won't - you barely have time to surface between action sequences. (Kirkus Reviews)
