Tammy Kaehler,
Avoidable Contact
(Poisoned Pen Press, 2014)

While I am not a car-racing fan, I found Avoidable Contact very exciting and gripping. I expect it would be even more so for racing fans!

Although not someone who has ever watched a car race, I do love to read novels, especially mysteries, set in worlds previously unknown to me. This was a very satisfying example.

Both the characters and the plot were well-drawn and plausible, and the racing atmosphere was very compelling. Also, if i ever do watch a car race, I will know a lot more of what's going on. Author Tammy Kaehler is informative, without bogging the story down in too much background information -- and that's tricky.

I'd mostly recommend this to car race fans, but it's a solid mystery for everyone, with a lot of nuance.
