“Deadly Driver” Takes Readers on an Intrigue-Filled Formula 1 Ride

01.04.2021: “Deadly Driver,” the latest thriller and sixth novel from author JK Kelly, whose passion for motorsports – and his work in the industry – inspired him to write his second book using racing as a backdrop, will officially launch this summer.


“Deadly Driver,” the latest thriller and sixth novel from author JK Kelly, whose passion for motorsports – and his work in the industry – inspired him to write his second book using racing as a backdrop, will officially launch this summer.




Imagine the exhilaration of speeding through the tight turns of a mountain road after flying in on a private jet to gamble in the casino at Monte Carlo. Then you board a luxury yacht to party with your celebrities after watching an incredible grand prix race. For American Formula I driver Bryce Winters, he was having the time of his life – until the CIA put a gun to his head.



In “Deadly Driver” we follow Winters on a path that takes him from the hills and oval tracks of New England to the most exciting cities and tracks around the world. His life is one of great contrast, of incredible personal loss and professional success. He wants to break free of the agency controlling him, chase a championship, and pursue an elusive love interest with a few secrets of her own.



"I've always had a vivid imagination and a passion for writing, especially thrillers. Having spent a lifetime in motorsports I asked the question 'What if?' and took Bryce Winters for a ride,” says Kelly.



“Think Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher meet ‘Ford v Ferrari,’ but in Formula 1.”



“Fuelin’ Around,” Kelly's other book based on racing, is a story of someone who followed his dream to work in the exciting world of motorsports.



Information on Kelly’s books may be found at https://jkkelly.com/.




“Deadly Driver” is set to launch on July 14 in advance of the IMSA race at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut and Formula 1 at Silverstone in England.



Advance review copies of “Deadly Driver” are available in paperback and eBook formats to accredited book reviewers. In addition, Kelly will hold book signings throughout the summer and is available for interviews.



Pre-orders for the Kindle version only can be made until the launch date at https://amzn.to/3sHPBLJ.




Early reviews of “Deadly Driver” include:“Clever, thrilling, and full of intrigue, this is suspense thriller done right.” – Prairie Reviews




"I'm really into it. I love the mixture of racing and the roller coaster mystery while intertwined with the travel.” – Ron Capps – 2016 NHRA Funny Car World Champion




“'Deadly Driver' was captivating from the start for me. What an adventurous, suspenseful and intense story, laced with sardonic wit and intriguing characters. A great read!” – journalist Kelly Wade




Kelly lives in suburban Pennsylvania with his wife Lisa and loves travel, photography, and the ever-growing number of grandchildren.
