Book Details


When five track athletes from New York set off for Jamaica to learn the secret of Jamaican sprinting, they find out much more than they bargained for. What is responsible for the Jamaicans’ success? Is it the yams? The water? Drugs—or voodoo? Mystical Speed is a fast-paced adventure set against the lush backdrop of Jamaica. The athletes’ quest will take them through the hills of Trelawny, the Parish of Manchester, Accompong Town, and the Coronation Market—but will they live to tell the secrets that only the locals know?
