Book Report: Toly’s Ghost

Toly’s Ghost is the fourth novel in author/racer Burt "B.S." Levy's celebrated, cult-classic The Last Open Road series.

Toly’s Ghost is the fourth novel in author/racer Burt "B.S." Levy’s celebrated, cult-classic The Last Open Road series, following the further lives, loves, dreams, disappointments, adventures and misadventures of narrator/hero Buddy Palumbo and the rest of the motor-mad gang from Finzio’s Sinclair.

As with Levy’s other novels, it is the characters as much as the cars that drive the action, all set against the backdrop of a blissfully less politically correct America of the late-1950s and early-1960s that seems almost unfathomable today.

Levy mixes Palumbo’s wry, infectious and streetwise sense of humor and winking observations of human nature with carefully researched historical accuracy and a rare, insider’s understanding of the world of cars and motor sports.

Other books in the series include:
• The Last Open Road
• Montezuma’s Ferrari
• The Fabulous Trashwagon

Note: A fifth volume from Levy is in the works, tentatively
entitled The 200 MPH Steamroller and is expected to be released later this year.
