Classic in the Pits, Hardback


When Jack Colby hears a rumour that Old Herne's, the club for aviation and classic car veterans, is closing, he is appalled, and attends its annual event with foreboding.

His instinct is right. He has been commissioned to investigate the theft of the Porsche car belonging to its manager, the popular Mike Nelson, but now far worse problems threaten the club when brutal murder proves to be on the agenda.

Jack finds himself caught between two families: the Howells, headed by a US billionaire and veteran pilot, and the Nelsons, headed by Ray, widower of Miranda Pryde, singing star of the 1940s.

Her legacy is kept alive by her enigmatic grandson Jason, star of a Miranda Pryde tribute band.

But what role does he play in the case, and what role do the missing Porsche and Arthur Howell's beloved Morgan play?

In his quest for the truth behind the murder, Jack crosses the path of a notorious gang-leader, and soon murder strikes again...
