Elke Feuer was born and raised on Grand Cayman, where she lives today with her husband and two children. I chatted with her via email recently, as she celebrated the preorder buzz for her latest novel, Deadly Race, Book Two in her Deadly series.
The author of For the Love of Jazz and Deadly Bloodlines, Book One in the Deadly series, Elke stumbled into writing romantic suspense at least partly because of her fascination with serial killers. In particular, The Third Deadly Sin by Lawrence Sanders influenced her writing. It's the story of a female serial killer, and the book was the first Elke had read with a woman as the villain. It fueled her interest in serial killers, especially female villains.
“I loved that it trumped the concept that women can't be evil or capable of dangerous behaviors like men,” she told me.
Equal-opportunity evil, if you will.
Here’s the scoop on Elke’s latest - available for preorder now on Amazon:
Race car driver Remy Borden likes fast things: bikes, cars, and men. Her plan to become the first woman from the Cayman Islands to race internationally is sidetracked when she’s pulled - injured - from the final race because of a fiery confrontation with another driver.
When the racetrack owner is killed, his death puts Remy back in the race - and makes her suspect number one in his murder. But racing again proves difficult when Dr. Jackson Wilson insists she stop racing until she heals. She wonders if there isn’t an ulterior motive to his ‘doctor’s orders’ - the racetrack owner was his friend.
When accidents start happening at the racetrack and an adoring fan gets too close, Remy and Jackson set out to solve the murder. Soon the simmering attraction between them boils over, forcing Remy to admit Jackson makes her think of a life beyond racing.
