A Distance to Death
Forthcoming from Minotaur Books, August 2014
Tink Elledge is back in the saddle, back in ompetition—and in more danger than ever. She has gone West to try to finish the Tevis Cup, the toughest endurance race in the country. The race is a hundred miles through the Sierra Nevada, and the action takes place against a backdrop of Darwin, evolution, and intelligent design. The story is tuned to ongoing debate. It’s “smart, deftly plotted,” as my publisher announces, and “perfect for fans of Dick Francis.”
Ingeniously plotted–and equally fascinating in its equine and experimental aspects–“A Distance to Death” displays Menino’s fertile mind and her ability to translate those thoughts into intricate storytelling. Her second novel takes readers on a wild and satisfying ride.
