KIRKUS REVIEW

Tracy, who didn't quite make the grade in his career as a racing driver needs a change from the routine repairs at the body shop. He gets it when his boss assigns him to give his daughter a driving lesson in her new Lamborghini and Tracy finds that he and his charge are being tailgated by an escaped psychopathic criminal. The action leads to an elaborate chase from Wales to London and a smattering of the popular psychology of anti-heroes both crooked and straight but narrow proving that a live failure is not much smarter than a dead one. Satisfactory.
