Requiem at Monza by Dakota Franklin

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.

  1. Thank you so much, Joo.

    You're right, all the books in the series are self-standing, each with a different leading character, who in the others plays a supporting role.

    I've never had a review before the book is even published!
