Blood & Cinders by DDC Morgan
London 1949. Speedway fever runs high.
Its stars are the working class heroes of a Blitz-torn city emerging from the ravages of war. With cash in their wallets and hoards of adoring fans, these dirt-track chancers enjoy a life of speed, celebrity and sex.
But as Bermondsey Bullets defend their league title, they are rocked by the death of star rider Des Fenton in a mid-race smash.
It's the start of a new and dangerous chapter for stadium security boss Reg Calloway, as he's dragged into the dark side of life at the track, with echoes of his own troubled wartime past.
"Thrills, spills, sex & murder - this book has it all..."
"DDC Morgan perfectly captures the sheer raw excitement of Speedway's glory days..."
