    Michael J Clark s latest thriller, Mahoney s Camaro, ECW Press is a wild ride through 1980s Winnipeg belted into a 1960s muscle car It s a high revving, nostalgia fueled love story to all things automotive, to the brotherhood of gearheads and especially to the sights, sounds and smells of one of Canada sunderappreciated cities.Life hadn t turned out as planned for Steve Mahoney, who pulls night shifts at a corrupt city towing company Aside from some petty larceny, Mahoney has resisted Michael J Clark s latest thriller, Mahoney s Camaro, ECW Press is a wild ride through 1980s Winnipeg belted into a 1960s muscle car It s a high revving, nostalgia fueled love story to all things automotive, to the brotherhood of gearheads and especially to the sights, sounds and smells of one of Canada sunderappreciated cities.Life hadn t turned out as planned for Steve Mahoney, who pulls night shifts at a corrupt city towing company Aside from some petty larceny, Mahoney has resisted pressure from his boss to engage in Hook Me Up Towing slucrative sidelines pimping and peddling this newfangled thing called crack cocaine.His prospects are dim, his diet is awful, the job is a grind He lives for the days when his motley crew of grease monkeys rip apart the beaters of an earlier era, turning them into snarling, overpowered road warriors.Things take a turn when he yanks a submerged car out of the Red River, the body of a woman handcuffed to the steering wheel The woman goes to the morgue the waterlogged 67 Camaro to a salvage yard Mahoney snaps it up at auction, the largely intact shell a perfect fit for the damaged Chevy he s restoring in his garage.Unfortunately, the Camaro is accessorized with the smack talking ghost of Heather Price, an accountant with issues She isn t leaving until Mahoney solves the mystery of how she ended up in the river A suspicious homicide detective, a venal car dealer, assorted fatalities, a dubious exorcist and a fraught relationship between haunted Heather and his randy new girlfriend complicate Mahoney s once simple life.Throughout, former automotive journalist Clark peppers his story with mechanical detail, snide references to such design disasters as the Pinto and the Oldsmobile Toronado, and the streetscape of Winnipeg in the mid 1980s.That said, you don t need to hail from the Peg or know a spark plug from a timing belt to appreciate Clark s fast, fun thrill ride This is as guilty a pleasure as laying down two strips of rubber on a hot summer s night Ken MacQueen

    Mahoney s Camaro was a great auction deal Only a grand for a cherry 1967 that had only been in the river for a few hours As with every good deal, this one had a few strings First, Heather had been handcuffed to the steering wheel and drowned after being shoved into the drink Now, she was haunting the car Second, the murderer was desperate to get the car back to destroy any evidence linking him to Heather s murder.It s 1985 in Canada Mahoney works for a scuzzy towing firm but his passion is Mahoney s Camaro was a great auction deal Only a grand for a cherry 1967 that had only been in the river for a few hours As with every good deal, this one had a few strings First, Heather had been handcuffed to the steering wheel and drowned after being shoved into the drink Now, she was haunting the car Second, the murderer was desperate to get the car back to destroy any evidence linking him to Heather s murder.It s 1985 in Canada Mahoney works for a scuzzy towing firm but his passion is cars After losing his mechanic job under the shadow of theft, he can t find reputable work He is forced to work in an ethically questionable tow yard driving a tow truck during the midnight shift Despite his bosses entreaties, he doesn t deal drugs, pimp woman, or steal cars Mahoney looks into Heather s death just to get her out of his ride What he finds is the 1980s drug of choice, Crack, and a widespread criminal enterprise.As a car fan, the descriptions of cherry rides and engine parts was a fun throwback to my youth of car clubs and cruise nights I m not sure everyone will be as entranced by pages of description of how to move the shell of one car onto another The mystery was told from both the criminals and the detective Mahoney s point of view like Columbo the killer is known from the beginning so this is not a good choice for armchair detectives But if you like muscle cars, this is the perfect crime thriller For everyone else, 3 stars.Thanks to the author, ECW Press, and LibraryThing for a copy in exchange for my honest review
