Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983306109, Paperback)

“I was initially dubious that a novel about cars could hold my attention. How wrong I was; by the middle of this text I found myself fascinated by Porsches not only as a plot device, but as a general source of interest as well. The parallel between the quest for a “lost” car and human ambition – for money, power, fame, or immortality – works nicely.” - G.H. "The author has accomplished something of which many people only dream. Overall, I'd say that this is a remarkable novel." - M.G. "Michael has a great imagination - I love the premise - and he's a good writer. I thought the dialogue was fine, the characters well-crafted, and the plot well-conceived." - J.K. "Reading this book is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon." - C.W. "It's a rip-roaring mystery. The guy can write!" - J.C. "Great descriptions with all the twists and turns. Ending was surprising! Can't wait for the next one." - J.H. "I purchased THE LOST SPYDER and absolutely could not put it down until I finished it! You have quite a talent for writing. You have a rip-roarin’ suspense-filled best seller here, IMHO!" - K.T. "I love this book!" - R.L. John Christian (J.C.) Callahan was once an influential figure in Birmingham, Alabama -- a brash entrepreneur known as much for his hard-edged personality as his business success. Now Callahan is living out his golden years in self-imposed isolation, a tough old man withdrawn from the community and seemingly obsessed with mechanical acquisitions. When he mysteriously disappears with a horse of cash, his estranged daughter Kristen is notified. Kristen Callahan is the sole remaining family that the old man can claim. But she's the mirror image of her father. Instead of embracing his militaristic sense of order, Kristen is a free spirit who seeks wisdom in unexpected places - like palm readings and astrology charts. To locate her father, she contacts a low rent detective and second tier law student named Charlie Byrd. Together they discover that J.C. Callahan has disappeared on a quest. He is searching for a legend. The Porsche 550 Spyder. One of the rarest cars ever built, 550 Spyders are prized by wealthy collectors as valuable works of automotive art. For years, rumors whispered that one such car was stolen and lost forever. Now, after more than five decades, the mythical lost Spyder has finally been found. J.C. Callahan has the Spyder in his grasp, and its shocking secrets will not only change his life -- they also may end it.
