On the eve of the bloody Battle of the Somme, a group of English officers having a last drink before returning to the Front make a promise to each other: if they survive the battle ahead—and make it through the war—they will meet in Paris a year after the fighting ends. They will celebrate their good fortune by racing motorcars they beg, borrow, or own from Paris to Nice.
In November 1919, the officers all meet as planned, and though their motorcars are not designed for racing, they set out for Nice. In the mountains just north of their destination, two vehicles are nearly run off the road, and one man is badly injured.
Back in England one year later, during a heavy rainstorm, a driver loses control on a twisting road and is killed in the crash. Was it an accident due to the hazardous conditions? Or premeditated murder?
Investigating this perplexing case, Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge discovers that the truth is elusive. Buy this historical mystery for only $1.99 today.
