About the Author

Tammy Kaehler's career in marketing and technical writing landed her in the world of automobile racing, which inspired her with its blend of drama, competition, and friendly people. Mystery fans and racing insiders alike praised the first two Kate Reilly Racing Mysteries, " Dead Man's Switch" and "Braking Points, "and she takes readers back behind the wheel for the third time in" Black-Flagged." Tammy works as a technical writer in the Los Angeles area, where she lives with her husband and many cars.


This book revs the suspense past 10,000 RPM on the first page and keeps it there until the last. Tammy Kaehler sure-handedly steers readers deep into the world of endurance racing with an entertaining cast of characters. I'd ride shotgun with Kate Reilly any day.--Brad Parks, Shamus-, Nero-, and Lefty-Award-winning author of THE PLAYER
I have absolutely loved watching how Kate has developed through the first few books, and thoroughly enjoyed how close to reality Tammy has made so many of the racing-related storylines that Kate finds herself in. This series always leaves me wanting more, so I cannot wait to keep reading and see what's next on the horizon for my fellow female racing driver!--Pippa Mann, IndyCar driver
The 24 Hours of Daytona endurance race provides the backdrop for Kaehler's entertaining third Kate Reilly mystery (after 2013's Braking Points). Kate's beau, Stuart Telerday, should have been on hand, but just as the day is getting started, cops turn up announcing that he was badly injured in a hit-and-run. Kate soon receives a set of mysterious text messages suggesting that the supposed accident was, in fact, attempted murder. Complicating matters emotionally--and perhaps giving Kate a motive for hurting her boyfriend--is the kiss that Stuart admits he shared with another woman the night before. If that isn't enough to handle, one of Kate's teammates is killed on the track. Snappy dialogue, a smart and affable heroine (who calls to mind auto racer Danica Patrick), and pacing reminiscent of 24 combine to make this entry as exciting as a spin around the speedway.--Publishers Weekly
