It was a car fanatic's nightmare. While Terry Berkson was visiting his newborn son at the hospital, his '63 Corvette-a gift from his late father-was stolen off the streets of Brooklyn.

I don't normally read books about cars but the reason I read this book is because it was "Highly Recommended with Broad Appeal" by Library Journal.From a woman's perspective I wasn't disappointed.

I bought this book for my brother and decided to read it myself. It's funny that it reminds me of another book that I reviewed sort of recently, Beast of Never, Cat of God: The Search for the Eastern Puma. Except in that book the author was searching for a cougar and in this book the author was looking for a Corvette. But, otherwise, they were sort of weirdly the same.

I live in NYC. and over the years have had 2 cars stolen. I was insured but even if I wasn't , I wouldn't have risked my life and marriage to recover a stolen automobile. As I read Berkson's account I began to understand his emotional connection to the car and became so emotionally involved myself with his quest to find his beloved Corvette that I couldn't put the book down. I read it in one sitting!

I am biased because I know the author, but I do feel as though this is a good read for anyone. It's not just about a car, but one man's spirited journey to reclaim one of the loves of his life.
