Tim Richmond was, fellow NASCAR driver Kyle Petty said, "a stranger in time." In one regard, the flashy, flamboyant driver from Ashland, Ohio, was years ahead of the trends in a sport that would soon enjoy explosive growth in popularity. Women who were NASCAR fans loved him - and so did their husbands and boyfriends.

Would you try another book written by David Poole or narrated by Christine Padovan?

David Poole - Yes.
Christine Padovan - No! Definitely not! How did this person ever get hired to read this book aloud? Did nobody listen to her? "Terrible" would be a compliment. Her sentences actually do not make sense because she is pausing at the end of every line. e.g Tim Richmond led every lap of the Penzoil 500. Until his engine blew three laps from home.

Would you be willing to try another one of Christine Padovan’s performances?

Never!

Could you see Tim Richmond being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Yes, quite easily.

It is snowing, she's barefoot, but Galya runs. Tricked into coming to Belfast with the offer of a good job, all she wants now is to go home. Her only hope is a man who gave her a cross on a fine chain and a phone number, telling her to call if she escapes. Now she puts herself at his mercy, knowing she has nowhere else to turn.

Twelve and Collusion were excellent books. As someone who lived and grew up in and around the areas described, I was completely absorbed in this continuing tale.



However, when the story comes right up to date in Stolen Souls, it goes up a gear and keeps the reader on the seat's edge, all the way through.



There is a pathway to a further sequel from Stolen Souls and I cannot wait to get it. Highly recommended.
