Racer Kate Reilly is suited up and ready for the start of the legendary 24 Hours of Daytona. But what lies ahead is not just a racing challenge but a harrowing test of her will and nerve off the course. Even before the green flag waves over Daytona International Speedway, Kate receives word that her boyfriend, Stuart, is hospitalized nearby in a coma, fighting for his life after a hit-and-run. Stunned by the news, Kate can do nothing better for Stuart than complete her scheduled laps driving her team’s car. But more shocks follow as Daytona’s clock starts ticking: An on-track accident ends tragically. Some of her complicated family is spotted with other teams—why? And an eyewitness claims Stuart was run down deliberately by someone from the race paddock. Alternating stints behind the wheel of the team’s Corvette with stretches of quizzing colleagues and searching for clues, Kate circles the police and taps every possible source—friend, foe, and family—to find out who’s after Stuart and why. As the race clock counts down to zero hour, Kate must come to terms with her own fears rising from her past and decide who she’s willing to trust. Only then can she identify who’s willing to kill to keep a secret buried.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Snappy dialogue, a smart and affable heroine, and pacing reminiscent of 24 combine to make this entry as exciting as a spin around the speedway.” Publishers Weekly
“The 24 Hours of Daytona is murder in more ways than one…Kate’s third will be a joy to racing fans hungry for inside dope.” Kirkus Reviews
“This book revs the suspense past 10,000 r.p.m. on the first page and keeps it there until the last. Tammy Kaehler sure-handedly steers readers deep into the world of endurance racing with an entertaining cast of characters. I’d ride shotgun with Kate Reilly any day.” Brad Parks, Shamus Award–winning author
“I have absolutely loved watching how Kate has developed through the first few books and thoroughly enjoyed how close to reality Tammy has made so many of the racing-related storylines that Kate finds herself in. This series always leaves me wanting more, so I cannot wait to keep reading and see what’s next on the horizon for my fellow female racing driver!” Pippa Mann, Indy-car driver
