A '38 Lagonda is driving someone to murder in "this lively, fast-paced mystery" series debut featuring British classic car expert and detective Jack Colby (Publishers Weekly).

When Jack Colby, owner of Frogs Hill Classic Car Restorations, stumbles upon a 1938 coupé Lagonda V12 rusting away in a country barn in Kent, he longs to bring it back to its former glory. Jack also takes a shine to its owner, the fetching widow Polly Davis. Sadly, his romantic pursuits cut short. A few days later Polly is murdered just a few feet from the elegant machine. Now Jack's curiosity about the car—and the crime—are kicking into high gear.

He knows that years ago Polly's late husband was found dead in the driver's seat. And it's clear she had no interest in selling or restoring the Lagonda—just hiding it. But are the rumors about Polly's dicey past the key to it all, or just a detour? Convinced that the Lagonda is somehow involved, especially when it disappears, Jack is determined to uncover Polly's secrets and bring her killer to justice, even at the risk of his own life.
