Why you must read Simon Janus’ Road Rash

Free Kindle Book

ROAD RASH is the story of James Straley. He might think his life is cursed, but it doesn’t compare to what lies ahead of him on life’s highway. He’s on the run with the proceeds of a botched bank robbery. It’s all he has. His crew is dead and his getaway car just died on him. He’s on foot with the cash when he comes across a two-car pileup. There’s no saving the drivers, but he can save himself and steals one of the wrecked cars. But he boosts the wrong set of wheels. Within an hour of driving off, he develops a rash that eats away at his flesh. No doctor can help him–only the car’s original owner. If Straley wants his skin back, he must journey on the road to redemption, which ends in the heart of Central America.

We can’t quite guess what genre this is – crime? horror?
It’s a supernatural crime thriller.

The story is inspired by my own experience of going to a small township populated by people who worshiped Santeria.

Really? We’re interviewing you about Road Rash, but now we’re curious about your story.
People can read about my adventure here.

In that case, let’s get back to Road Rash.  Tell us about James Straley. 
James Straley is a hardened criminal. He makes a living through guile, intimidation, violence and connections, but all his skills fail him we meet him in ROAD RASH. He’s introduced to a world and people who operate on a different level. They open his eyes to a different way of thinking and living and when he loses everything, he gets a second chance at life.

Have you written any other novels that we can read next?
I have written a dozen or so books. The favorites with readers are PAYING THE PIPER and TERMINATED. I do encourage people to read DID NOT FINISH and HOT SEAT which are mysteries set in the world of motor racing and inspired by my own experiences in the sport.

Your own experiences? Tell us about yourself.
I’m from the UK but I live in the US. My background is in engineering. I used to race cars. I have a pilot’s license. My wife and I occasionally work as PIs in Vegas. I’m an endurance cyclist. I rescue animals and my wife and I have a very small urban farm in our backyard.

Do you have a website?
