Founder of the Simeone Museum’s high praise for Hunt For The Blower Bentley

05 Nov

“A wonderful novel, filled with excitement”

Who better to comment on Hunt For The Blower Bentley than the founder of the Simeone Museum, Fred Simeone. Many of you will be familiar with their jaw-dropping collection of vintage racing cars in Philadelphia – which includes a Blower Bentley which Fred himself tracked down and lovingly restored. He draws many parallels with the novel and you will be pleased to hear him report that the Blower Bentley is a joy to drive.

They have more than 60 cars laid out in dioramas and displays. Many of them are simply priceless, being one of the most extensive collections in the world. There are displays that cover the history of Le Mans and Nascar, The Nurburgring, Brooklands and many more.

Fred was sent a copy of the book by the author Kevin’s father and it was back to him that the review of the book was sent. Fred even set about double-checking Kevin’s research for the book and feeds back that all the book research is spot on.

Hunt For The Blower Bentley is available from all good bookstores and on Amazon Kindle,  Barnes and Noble Nook, and iBooks (iPad/iPhone).
