SLIDING INTO HELL

A brand new racy speedway novel

By John Berry
The Backtrack columnist and author of Confessions of a Speedway Promoter is back with his first crack at speedway fiction...

Published November 2005, £8.99, in softback
256 pages

(*Not suitable for persons under 18 years)

A young speedway star hovers perilously between life and death...

Against all odds, he eventually regains consciousness, only to find himself confined to a wheelchair. His life becomes fiercely driven by two emotions.

On the one hand he will do anything for the new-found love of his life.

On the other, he will do absolutely anything to avenge those he blames for ruining his life...

This fast-moving story takes us into the world of high finance, bitter vengeance, greed, deception, betrayal and romantic twists, set against a speedway background.

Speedway fans will enjoy Berry's subtle commentary on the decline of the shale sport in the 80s.

Non-speedway-minded readers will get a glimpse of the intrigues behind the sport's allure, without feeling lost in technical jargon.

Despite its speedway flavour, Sliding Into Hell is all about the paradox of life. At the end of the day, you win some and you lose some.

What they say about Sliding Into Hell...

"A pot-boiler that really hits the target, with a final twist to ensure entertainment to the last page"
Speedway Star magazine

"Riveting tale of anger and greed that will be enjoyed by men and women who don't necessarily have any interest in speedway racing"
Backtrack magazine

"Compelling, fast-moving tale that emphasises the dirt in dirt-track. Gripping stuff!"
Ipswich Evening Star
