His latest case promises to be his most challenging yet. A spate of seemingly random high-speed car accidents has struck the highways of southern California. Each seems to have been staged-yet the participants have all died. Why would anyone commit fraud at the cost of his own life? The deeper Darwin digs, the closer he comes to unmasking an international network specializing in intimidation and murder, whose members will do anything to make sure Darwin soon suffers a deadly accident of his own.

Not Simmons' masterwork, but highly entertaining
This is nowhere near as deep and complex as "The Terror", or as sprawling and epic as "Carrion Comfort" or Dan Simmons' various SF novels. But it certainly is good fun, constructed with ease and elegance, and stuffed full of random and fascinating facts and sidetracks. It might seem daring to start a novel off with a four page (my estimate) technical description of a catastrophic brake failure; but he pulls it off, and keeps up the pace very enjoyably. This is also as close as I assume most readers will ever get to a novelization of a Darwin Awards Best Of. Fine and fittingly hardboiled narration. Recommnded!
