Kurt Maxxon Racing

Donation Included! In the first of the Kurt Maxxon mystery series, Racecar driver Kurt Maxxon comes across the body of General Manager Elaine Willowby at the Masonville track. Police are sure her lover, race driver Larry Bates, has killed her. Through unique logic and some luck, Kurt tracks down the real killer. Price in the signed bookstore for the hardback collectors copy. Jim will donate 10% of the proceeds from the sale of this book on Authors Den to FOLUSA "Books for Babies" program.

After twenty-six years in the Marine Corps as a fighter pilot, Kurt Maxxon retires to his hometown to open an Auto Parts store, and drive a racecar, Nikki.

The series opens in Masonville, after Kurt loses the love of his life, Vicki, to ovarian cancer. He is making his first return to racing after a long battle, and finds the body of Elaine Willowby, the general manager of the Masonville track.

The motive to kill her will surprise you, and you will be left wondering, as Kurt meets the people who give him clues into Elaine's past, and the history of the Swift River Valley. Enjoy Masonville now, then tune in to read Kings Rapids, a mystery, in April of 2009.

Excerpt
I waited for the police to interrogate me. The sun was getting higher in the sky. A few puffy clouds cluttered the edges, but the sky was mostly azure blue overhead. The day was warming up nicely and flowering trees gave the air a pleasant scent.
They’d left Elaine lying where I’d found her. In the early going I’d wandered outside the lounge to pace off nervous energy. I paced to where I might catch sight of Elaine, but stopped before I actually saw her. As time passed, I became concerned that if they didn’t remove Elaine’s body soon, the odor would outdo the flowering trees. The police photographers had come and gone. The forensic lab people had marked and measured everything in the garage, but no one seemed to care about Elaine. Maybe they had forgotten about her.
At about the same time as a Medical Examiner’s van pull up in front of Bates
