    One thought on “LE MANS a novel (RUTHLESS TO WIN)”

    1. Le Mans (Ruthless to Win)Author: Dakota FranklinGenre: Racing ThrillerRating: 4.5 StarsLe Mans is thrilling both on and off the track.Summary:American race car driver and engineer Mallory thinks her career is over after a bad crash. When an elite European racing organization offers her a job, she eagerly accepts. But in the high-stakes world of international racing, ethics and even the law mean little to those seeking an edge. Soon Mallory is thrust into a dangerous investigation that may cost h [...]

    2. I knew I had to read this novel the moment I first saw the cover. I knew it was going to the top of my To Be Read pile when I read the description. I knew it would be good when I read the bio of the author.And it did not disappoint. The novel had it all. Adventure, suspense, and a woman race-car driver. Though set in the stratosphere of high finance and even higher social life, the characters are likeable and relatable. Mallory is an auto designer who has aspirations to, as she puts it, ‘get a [...]

    3. There's a lot to like about this novel, not least the central character who has a nice line in self-deprecating humour and is very engaging.The background characters are interesting, though a few do seem slightly sterotypical, and the plot rattles along at a good pace. I did find myself zoning out slightly in some of the passages that delivered quite a lot of technical information about racing but nevertheless I don't think you need to be knowledgeable about the subject (I'm certainly not) to en [...]

    4. I never thought I would be giving five stars to a book about racing!I first read this prior to publication as I helped out with the editing. I have just completed my first re-read and I loved it even more on reading it for pleasure. The story follows the main character, Mallory from her hospital bed following a pretty serious crash, to her first race at Le Mans. Along the way she solves the problem of who is selling the secrets of the team to the rivals. There is so much action in the story, I d [...]

    5. I have harbored secret desires of race car driving since learning to drive at 12 or 13 with my Dad. My family can attest to this and to the 'races' my Dad and I engaged in (on the way to church, incidentally) when I finally had my own car. He usually won, being more experienced and a fierce competitor. But later, with my girlfriend and our kids egging us on in two rented Dodge Durangos on a desolate red dirt road on the island Kauai, I flew over the bumps and ruts with sheer dare-devil speed. Sh [...]

    6. The character of the aspiring female driver Mallory is convincing, and like the author herself, is an engineer. What I most like about this book is that racing is the core of the story. It has all the elements necessary for a good novel: romance, violent crime, and social interaction with the wealthy corporate world so intrinsic to motor sport at the highest professional levels, but those subplots never displace the core of the story. In too many other novels about motorsport romance and the rom [...]

    7. A richly detailed, auto-racing Cinderella story.Mallory's 'rags to riches' adventure starts with her waking up in the hospital, broken and unemployed. The reader follows Mallory into the world of Cartwright-Armitage - and gets to share in the adventure of a life-time.No spoilers from me, you'll have to see for yourself.I thoroughly enjoyed the racing-sequences, because I've always secretly wanted to be a race-car driver. (And I have the speeding tickets to prove it.) Though I had my doubts when [...]

    8. I loved the book, a really fast paced read, literally. I could smell the petrol, it was so descriptive, the atmosphere and technical details were so accurate.

    9. I love this book! I have read it so many times. A book about racing, with a strong female lead! Mallory is an amazing character, she is well rounded, a race engineer, driver, private investigator, and a woman! As a current member of a motor sport safety team, I really appreciate how many different perspectives of racing are shown. It's technical, it's passionate, and a bit of a thriller.

    10. Do NOT read this book.Honestly. Don't.I realize that sounds horrible, really horrible. And I hate not having anything nice to say but I really don't. This is quite possibly one of the worst books I have ever read. Ever.First, before I go any further, please noteI am a huge racing fan. HUGE. ALMS, Grand Am, Le Mans is all my world. I have been to over a dozen races in the last five years. I have friends that are drivers, managers, crew members, PR people, mediaeven friendly with a track president [...]

    11. The racing was good, the racism of the characters was offensive.I wanted to like this book but found the descriptions of the people of color very offensive. but the author knows racing.
