About The Book

Drift it. Sling it. Slide it. Shred it....
Just don't get T-boned.


Kennin is new to Sin City, running from a tragic past and anxious to start a life outside the gearhead crowd. But he can't resist the lure of all the hot, tricked-out cars in Las Vegas.

WhenKennin accidentally proves his talent, he's pulled into a tsuiso battle against the toughest drivers around. The competition is cutthroat, and Kennin's outsider status only makes it worse. With ugly rivalries and vicious sabotage all around him, Kennin's ride will be gut-wrenchingly dangerous...and totally amping.
