This is the second book in the "Ruthless to Win" series. I haven't yet read the first one "Le Mans" but I didn't feel like I was missing lots of important information. As far as I can tell, all the books in this series will be set in the same world of motor racing with a family of characters, but will all be different stories with a different area and different main characters, the other ones just "walk ons".
This book seemed to be a lengthy one. The plot was about a racing car crash, and the investigation into what caused it in the murky world of the Italian Camorra.
I thought the characters were great. I felt the story dragged a bit for the first part of the book, however as it progressed and got more into action, then I was swept along. I shall definitely bump Le Mans up my list now.
