Says Publisher Gemma Coole:
"We couldn't find a model who looked as beautiful in a helmet as Dakota, and we paid for her publicity shot already, and the designer loved the photo. There was only one outcome!"

Dakota Franklin RUTHLESS TO WIN series

RUTHLESS TO WIN
A structured thriller series

All Dakota Franklin’s novels are set against the background of the top auto racing classes and their ancillary activities.

All stories are told in the first person, with the male or female lead on stage throughout.

Though each novel thrills in its own right with a fully realized central character and complete plot, they belong to a series in that all the central characters work for the auto racing teams of the ruthless Jack Armitage.

Protagonists from earlier books are secondary characters in later novels or make cameo appearances, a fine thread for building reader involvement, loyalty and anticipation for the arrival of the next book.

Nine novels are edited and ready for scheduled publication
Troubleshooter explains how Charlie Cartwright came to be such a handy man with an iron bar. In Racing Justice Wall Street lawyer Simon Aron fights an Atlanta courtroom battle arising from the events in Le Mans (first to be published). Tennessee ex-Secret Service security expert Joanne Bartlett arranges a Requiem at Monza. Hillbilly racer Flicka Revere is trouble in NASCAR First. Angelino Raf Ferenghetti in Queen of Indy saves 425,000 spectators under terrorist threat at the world’s greatest auto racing spectacular, the Indianapolis 500. Triple Threat Thrill features Californian driver Thrill Morgan. In God’s Scofflaws the mathematical boy genius Grant Scarfe is driven to murder.

More are in progress
American Racer is complete and ready for editing. Last Gentleman Racer, Blue Riband and Lashback are in progress. More are planned.

Read in any order
Though the series has a central core, each novel is complete and selfstanding, intended to be read and published in any order
