The myth of The Ghost Driver becomes a reality – a hero who’s feels like he’s driven straight out a dark comic book page.
Filled with remarkable high speed thrills, encouraging plenty of bullets to fly and sparking chases involving a car that’s fuelled on a ghostly blue vapour, adrenalin and a combination of nostalgic music references – you have yourself a paranormal ‘Lethal weapon’.
Widowed Detective Pete Shure and his partner Gerry Woods are the crime fighting duo. Shure has earned himself a devil may care attitude after the death of his wife, Lanha. Gerry is a family man, but respects his partner’s judgement, as he always gets results.
There are guns galore, escapades, fast cars (in abundance) and several chases, after one of which The Ghost Driver is born.
In his Modified Dodge Charger, growling along the streets of New York City, if you hear the roar of a V8 engine only to see a trailing blue vapour in your rear view mirror, then he’s on route to his next case…
The characters are predominantly male but it’s so refreshing to read that the few ladies written into the story weren’t there to drape themselves ‘artfully’ over car bonnets, which is what you’d expect in a story concentrating on motors and police chases. This way it can be enjoyed for simply being the crime-fighting fantasy that it is.
Rating: 3.5 / 5
(My sincere thanks must go to the author for providing a signed copy of his book for review – plus a magnificent compilation of the music to accompany the book)
