My New Faston Hanks Novel. Free Sample. We're Going After A Blower.





It's been 8 years since I wrote my first novel, Hunt for 901. I took some time off from writing books, but picked it up again 18 months ago when I found out about the perfect missing car to be the star of the new novel.

A missing Blower Bentley.

I'll tell more, but here are the links to pre-order it. Or, at the very least, do go ahead and 'like' it. It would mean a lot. Links for around the world:

USA - http://www.amazon.com/Hunt-Blower-Bentley-Kevin-Gosselin/dp/1780920180
Germany - http://www.amazon.de/Hunt-Blower-Bentley-Kevin-Gosselin/dp/1780920180
Japan - http://www.amazon.co.jp/Hunt-Blower-Bentley-Kevin-Gosselin/dp/1780920180

France - http://www.amazon.fr/Hunt-Blower-Bentley-Kevin-Gosselin/dp/1780920180

There were 50 Blower Bentley's produced. That is a fact. Of which, 49 are accounted for. That doesn't mean 49 still exist as some were wrecked or rebuilt into other cars, but there was one. Serial number SM 3912 that was last heard of in 1939.

I've pulled many of my Bentley facts from the work of Michael Hay.

So, this new novel builds on the limited facts around SM 3912's previous owners and the modern day hunt for it.

With alternating chapters between WWII and the present day hunt by automotive archaeologist Faston Hanks, Hunt for the Blower Bentley is a page turning thriller.

If you like WWII history or novels, you'll like this book. If you like cars, I think you will love it.

I've listened to my readers and upped the pacing and left behind a lot, but not all, of Faston's love of food.

It is without a doubt, many, many times better a book than 901.

Hope you enjoyed the prologue.

Interesting concept. Looks like it is what I do, but in real life!
