"Experienced journalist and debut novelist Martini spent a decade
researching the real men whose stories form the basis of this work
of fiction, and it shows in the both epic and intimate details that
make this story spring to life. In Martini's prose, one can almost
hear the tires screeching around the track, from the dry deserts of
Libya to the damp mountains of Italy, from the sparkling streets of
Monaco all the way to the shores of the United States. Amid the
pungent fumes of gasoline, readers will also feel the sense of
dread as the world inched closer to war. A sprawling,
adrenaline-drenched story that will appeal even to readers who know
next to nothing about auto racing." - Kirkus Reviews; In this epic
novel about the motor-racing heroes of Fascist Italy and Nazi
Germany, legendary characters battle to win incredible races on
switchback roads along the edges of ravines. Exploring the
relationships between the champions as much as the sporting events
themselves, this is a thrilling tale based on the true rivalries,
triumphs and disasters during a fascinating period in European
