10 September 1961: at the boomerang-shaped racetrack at Monza half a dozen teams are preparing for the Italian Grand Prix. It is the biggest race anyone can remember. Phil Hill - the first
American to break into the top ranks of European racing - and his Ferrari teammate, Count Wolfgang von Trips - a German nobleman with a movie-star manner - face one another in a race that will decide the winner of the Formula One drivers' championship. By the day's end, one man will clinch that prize. The other will perish face down on the track.

Seeped in danger, seductive glamour and burning rivalry, this is the story of two young men living in the shadow of oblivion and dicing with death.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Terrific... A quite remarkable book which every motor sport aficionado will want to read -- Murray Walker
A compelling story - shocking, sad, tragic and very human - about men who willingly drove with the Grim Reaper and what motivated them to do so. -- Duncan Hamilton
The days of true motor-racing romance are long gone, but are superbly evoked... Cannell tells a story of heroism and carnage. * Independent *
