Description - Quick by Steve Worland
Strap in for a breathtaking, tyre-peeling, high-octane adventure ride by the rising star of action thrillers. Melbourne, Australia: Round one of the Formula One World Championship. Billy Hotchkiss no longer races a V8 Supercar, but that doesn't mean he's lost the need for speed. When the young cop uncovers a diamond heist in progress he leaps into action and almost captures the thieves single-handedly. Lyon, France: Interpol are convinced the criminals are somehow connected to Formula One. And they think this Australian ex-race driver is just the guy to stop them. Sent undercover with an unwilling French partner, Billy is thrust into the glamorous world of international motor racing. But as the duo closes in on the thieves they soon expose a far more sinister threat. With the fate of a city and the lives of one hundred thousand people in the balance, Billy must drive like never before to stop the worst act of terror since 9/11. Praise for Steve Worland's Books 'A brilliant rollercoaster ride of a novel. I couldn't put it down.' Hugh Jackman 'A cinematic blockbuster.' Men's Fitness 'A fresh voice for fans of Matthew Reilly.' Canberra Times Plenty of non-stop explosive excitement.'
