Martha also posted her review on her A Book and A Dish site along with a recipe from yours truly. You can read Martha's review as well as my recipe for Taco Soup at A Book and A Dish.
"Last year, Oliver Simcoe asked me and Tommy Yates to join one of his engine trials. His company designed a new engine that was supposed to be more fuel efficient for less pit stops, more environmentally friendly, which makes for great P.R., and faster because every driver wants to win. I was reluctant. I hate these type of trials. Would never do another if I had a choice, but Oliver was persuasive. The money wasn't bad either. We bought a new car and trailer with what they paid for my time. The engine did what it was supposed to do, but there were some bugs involved that bothered me so I voiced those concerns. The engine tended to overheat faster than it should have. On the track, in a race that lasts a couple of hours, that can lead to disaster. A blown engine out there could get somebody killed, maybe even several somebodies. I couldn't sign off on that, not until they fixed those problems. That's what I told them."
NASCAR owner and driver Grant Chambers has found himself and his son Chase being the target for too many 'accidents.' Lucky for him, his security company was none other than Snow Security, and one of it's employees just happens to be Abraham Snow. So when the latest accident almost cost Chase his life, Grant called in the team to solve the problem before whoever behind the accidents succeeded.
The first name on the list was that of Oliver Simcoe. The man who threatened to put an end to Grant and his company after he reported problems with Oliver's new engine to the other drivers as well as NASCAR resulting in them being pulled until further investigations found the problems or cleared the engines. But... Snow finds that after talking to other at the track, the problem might be a little closer to home.
I love this series of books. They are actually two books in one. The first is the investigative story while the other is Snow's ongoing story. After being shot and almost dying, Snow retired as an undercover agent that was on the track of Miguel Ortega. The agency had at first believed it to be just one man but now believe it is a group of men using the same name to keep them off track. After his retirement, Snow moved back to Georgia and thought his cover was in tact. Turns out he has been found and there is another hit out on him.
I'm looking forward to reading the next in this series where I understand Snow comes out of retirement and becomes actively involved, again, in the search for this group calling them selves Miguel Ortega.
Thanks for the kind words, Martha. They are greatly appreciated.
