Customer Review

on 20 June 2009
If you have read any of Michael Pearson's naval history books then you will recognise the same attention to detail here set in 1957 as he turns his hand to motor racing fiction. As a first novel its an enjoyable read and I was sufficiently taken back to the era where political correctness didn't exist and some of the character stereotypes lifted straight from a 1950s movie and its fun because of that. You feel yourself rooting for the plucky British sports car maker gambling his entire busines on a single race. The title may confuse some in that the Targa Florio is daylight road race but the phrase is lifted from the poem 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes and immortalised in the music video for Fleetwood Mac's 'Everywhere' which is a nice touch. Looking forward to the next one.
