"Michael Keyser, author of The Speed Merchants, has done extensive research and it shows. A French Kiss with Death presents a comprehensive view of the whole undertaking, giving the reader a solid history of real le Mans racing as well as glimpses of earlier Hollywood versions of the sport...

"All race-movie buffs, McQueen fans or early "70s sports prototype fans will want a copy of this book just for the photographs. Readers of suspense novels will want a copy for the story. It"s easily my favorite book of 2000."
