The Death and Life of Mal Evans
The Death & Life of Mal Evans is a page-turner. We know how the Beatles story ended, how John died, and so on. We do not know how the story ends in Lee’s alternate reality. It is intriguing to anticipate the career path of the Beatles, as a group and individually, and especially to look forward to the new album releases. In that way Lee skillfully builds up a lot of suspense.
It’s been meticulously planned and is scrupulously written. It’s terrific entertainment, too. It moves quickly, and that’s a good thing, because once you’re into the story, you want to know what happens next.
. . . A fascinating look at the Beatles and their story. It is a story rich in detail and research, facts are used and then turned on their side in order to bend the story into a new and interesting tale . . . A delightful, quick read which will keep your interest, and keep you thinking, well after it has ended.
Spectacular Bid: The Last Superhorse of the Twentieth Century
Despite missing out on the elusive Triple Crown, I am convinced Spectacular Bid, along with Secretariat, was one of the two greatest racehorses I’ve ever seen. We now have the definitive story on this great horse and his colorful connections. In The Last Superhorse of the Twentieth Century, Peter Lee does a masterful job of telling the entire and real story of a racing star who overcame numerous obstacles. From beginning to end, it’s a book that you cannot put down!

Peter Lee has written a fast-paced and exciting look at the life and times of one of the modern era’s most impactful horses. Even though I chronicled The Bid’s career as a reporter, I learned a lot of things about the horse I never knew in this all-encompassing book.
