The Way to Dusty Death by Alistair Maclean
The Way to Dusty Death
1973, 1975, Fontana, London
Grand Prix champion Johnny Marlow is involved in an accident in which another driver is killed. The world blames Marlow for the death, but he knows it was not his fault and goes after those who are truly responsible.
My first foray into Alistair Maclean and I rather enjoyed it. It reads like a James Bond novel, car chases and everything. However, the book is a little dated in both attitude and writing style. Maclean uses a large vocabulary and sure does have an interesting way with words.
