9780006166115: Flyaway

Too many people seem to have developed an unhealthy obsession to find the remains of an aircraft which went missing in the Sahara desert in the 1930s...

Why is Max Stafford, security consultant, beaten up in his own office? What is the secret of the famous Thirties aircraft? Why has Paul Bilson disappeared in North Africa?

The journey to Flyaway is a race to save Paul Bilson, a race to find the buried aircraft and - above all - a race to return alive...

'As long as meticulous craftsmanship and honest entertainment are valued, and as long as action, authenticity, and expertise still make up the strong framework of the good adventure/thriller, Desmond Bagley's books will surely be read.' REGINALD HILL, Twentieth Century Crime and Mystery Writers

'Bagley is a master storyteller.' DAILY MIRROR
