Award-winning journalist and Road & Track contributing editor Preston Lerner's venture into fiction. Elite race car driver, Cesar “Sandy” Hernandez keeps his focus fixed on the road ahead of him – the next turn, the next car, the next track. But while he’s preparing to qualify for the Indianapolis 500, his life is turned upside-down by the discovery of the dead body of a Howard Hughes-style billionaire who’d gone missing ten years earlier. Suddenly, Hernandez finds himself enmeshed in a mystery rooted in his teenage friendship with two other race car drivers who remain two of his fiercest rivals. Dead Slow is a novel in the tradition of Dick Francis’s horse-racing mysteries, with a likable, funny and unexpectedly resourceful first-person narrator leading readers on a fast-paced and entertaining tour of the motorsports world.
