Even if you don't tune up at the mention of a Silver Ghost Rolls or an Austin Chummy, you'll enjoy this fast spin across England and the Continent with a nameless first person old car dealer who has a chance to make a fast pound with a Mercedes 540 K. Which he can get from a Mrs. Meredith for a client Mr. Diaz--only they both die before the deal is concluded while later the Mercedes is stolen. With and without Sara Greatheart, his informant, he tails the car which has a history all the way back to Hitler's Third Reich. Mr. Leasor tells his incredible story well, at a breakneck 120 miles per hour or two worth of entertainment.
