Another quest for the truth. Private Investigator Wolf Ruger, returning Iraq Vet with PTSD, navigates the fast-paced, cut-throat world of formula racing in the motorsports capital of the world. Indianapolis-based HH Racing has a high-stakes technical problem the week before the last big race of the season. The race car's telemetry malfunctions, baffling the racing team's experts. Working to resolve the issue, Wolf runs head-on into a mysterious death. His experience and instincts kick into high gear to determine if the telemetry failure and the fatality are related. Simultaneously, seemingly unrelated murders strike a mob operation involving espionage and the FBI. Wolf's best friend Tito Rodriguez provides PTSD support, and his retired mentor Max advises him throughout the twists and turns of the case. Wolf must untangle the turmoil before he becomes a victim. While juggling passionate relationships in his personal life, he remains undeterred in pursuit of answers. Ross Carley is a technical consultant, with experience as a military intelligence officer, an engineering professor, and a CTO for a defense contractor. He authored several nonfiction technical books before writing his first Wolf Ruger mystery, Dead Drive. He is a member of Sisters in Crime and lives with his wife in Indianapolis. This is a private detective mystery.
