The action in The Lost Spyder takes place in several different locales. Most prominent is the author’s hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. The city is home to approximately one million people.
Birmingham cuisine runs the gamut, from hamburger stands to white tablecloth fine dining. In one passage, the lead characters visit Niki’s West, a popular cafeteria-style restaurant that specializes in Southern recipes.
Birmingham is also home to one of North America’s most impressive European-style racetracks. Barber Motorsports Park has been called “the Augusta of race courses” and is renowned for its natural beauty. Its presence has resulted in Birmingham becoming a premier destination for motorsports enthusiasts from around the world. It also hosts the Porsche Driving Experience, the North American iteration of Porsche’s official performance driving school.
