Are you a NASCAR fan? Love the whole atmosphere of car racing? Can't wait for the next big race? Then, Red Flags is the book for you. Like mysteries? Red Flags has one, but here the mystery is overwhelmed by the racing world.

Driver Kate Reilly arrives in Long Beach, California, anticipating the Grand Prix, only to find that a cousin she has despised (the feeling was mutual) has been murdered. Since she had dabbled in investigating several murders before, she is begged to do so one more time.

There appear to be a number of suspects; the man was not well liked by more than just Kate. She begins to feel she has bitten off much more than she can chew. Her very life may be in jeopardy!

Most of the words in this novel relate to racing; how it is done; what the drivers go through; what the pit crew accomplishes; how a race is won; the money that must back each car and driver; the mechanics of different models and makes of cars; and the euphoria that ensues when a win occurs.

The murder, however, is not forgotten. The culprit is found! Who it was proved to be a surprise to me.
