A literary work that is surely worth the price, if only for the cover picture of the ‘derailleur of death’ which is credited to Matt Brownson.
Greg Moody is a serial author of cycling murder mysteries. The blurb for this particular work is as follows:
‘Follow the ongoing adventures of Will Ross and Cheryl Crane in their world of professional cycling back to the United States where Cheryl travels to meet her newly formed mountain-bike team in the resort town of Vail, Colorado. She’s challenged with taking over as leader of her reluctant Haven-TW team, but they are nothing compared to what Will finds himself tangled up in. His agent has stolen and carried off $4.5 million in mob cash, and is being pursued by two experienced hit men. A rabid old lady environmentalist and her gigantic, and seemingly dim-witted, son soon become involved, thinking that $4.5 million would nicely help their battle against rampant development and evil real estate developers in Vail. All elements collide on a single weekend at the Ishmael Coffee mountain-bike race’
It all makes Taggart sound like a model of sophistication. I can’t wait to actually read it...
