Speed is a drug. Like many other passions and desires, it can ruin lives. A Fatal Addiction The Seduction of Speed, is part one of the three-book saga covering the lives of the members of two families' with widely different backgrounds Frank Cartland was born as the motoring age began. His family had been village blacksmiths' for many generations. From a humble and often harsh childhood, he manages to retain an optimistic outlook on life. Privileged George Marshall was born into an old, wealthy family and grew to share Frank’s passion for racing machines. The horrors of the first world-war have shaped the lives of both young men; its consequences never leave them. But soon the ambitions of both men are driven by the drug of speed. Frank began by repairing bicycles but motorcycles and motorcars quickly became his addiction. This addiction comes at a high price - both mentally and physically. Throughout the 1920s and ’30s, this joint obsession with fast machines put the two men on the same path despite their contrasting lives. There is constant drama on and off the dangerous racetracks of Brooklands, the Isle of Man and Le Mans as they strive to fulfill their racing dreams. The influences of the beautiful and powerful women in their lives bring unexpected and eventually tragic results. Stakes are high, success and racing glory are all that matter. Losing either can only bring misery, pain or even death. Passion on and off the racetracks is fuelled by their addiction to speed...EXTRACT- "He was smiling as the car roared on to the Home Banking, flashed under the Members’ Bridge and across the white timing line. His last thoughts were that the lap must have been much better than 120mph. Then, as he came into full view of the packed paddock, the engine unable to take any more abuse gave up the struggle and blew apart"
