THE YELLOW PACKARD
Are some cars built evil? Collins tantalizes with this question and incorporates his love of classic cars into his latest. It’s an unforgettable, fast-paced and memorable mystery with a splash of intrigue and some romance.
During the Great Depression, Janet Carson feels the need to prove herself to her fellow FBI agents. George Hall buys a used car and is on top of the world; his luck has gone from bad to great. He believes it has something to do with the Packard, so when things start going south for him, he also blames this on the car. Can Janet break the curse of this legendary car before more people are hurt, or will the Packard claim yet another victim? (BARBOUR, Oct., 320 pp., $12.99)
