I'm really not sure why any author, not to mention two, would write a re-make of Richard Matheson's great story, "Duel" but that is basically what "Throttle" is. Fortunately there are enough differences to make this copy tribute exciting. The alert reader can also catch some nice inferences to the B movie genius Roger Corman. This first time collaboration between father and son is a well done piece of suspense fiction on its own and well worth the small change you would pay for this "Kindle Single".

Nataliya The 'big' King and the 'little' King wrote a story together? I have to check it out!

Daniel Anyone who is a fan of "Duel" and Matheson's other works might do well to check out the collection "He Is Legend", which presents this short story and several others based on and inspired by Matheson's writings.
