Product description

Very good condition with little to no wear. Internally clean and bright. Crease to spine. Dedication and signed by Alan to dedication page. "and ??? John and Sean with love from Alan. - my life has been fun and at time exciting - but not at the same scale as Peter Wades"

One man's journey - from the deserts and dangers of post-war Palestine and the murderous creation of the Israeli state, to the guts and glamour of Grand Prix racing in Sixties England. This is Alan Forsyth's grandly ambitious first novel. A gripping action thriller introduces a young officer on his first command throwing grenades at authority and conformity as well as the enemy...an adventurer in the land of love and hate and betrayal, infatuated both by a beautiful woman and a dream to race the grand prix circuits of the world. Are both dreams beyond his reach? Where is the real betrayal? The future is obscured by the driving spray and mist of risk and loyalty, every bit as uncertain as the view from the 'loneliest place in the world' - the cockpit of a grand prix racing car. Forsyth conducts us skilfully to the chequered flag and a blistering last lap of twists and turns.
