About the Author:

Nevil Shute Norway was born on 17 January 1899 in Ealing, London.After attending the Dragon School and Shrewsbury School, he studied Engineering Science at Balliol College, Oxford. He worked as an aeronautical engineer and published his first novel, Marazan, in 1926. In 1931 he married Frances Mary Heaton and they went on to have two daughters. During the Second World War he joined the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve where he worked on developing secret weapons. After the war he continued to write and settled in Australia where he lived until his death on 12 January 1960. His most celebrated novels include Pied Piper (1942), No Highway (1948), A Town Like Alice (1950) and On the Beach (1957).

From AudioFile:

Pilot Richard Stenning vows to help the escaped convict who saved his life in a plane crash in the English countryside. Stenning soon finds himself pursued by police while he pursues a drug-smuggling ring. David Collins reads this adventure story with tongue-in-cheek glee, giving first-person narrator Stenning a tone suitable for Bertie Wooster. His Stenning takes risks and missteps on a higher scale, remaining true to his own code of conduct. This 1926 novel was the first for Nevil Shute, best known for ON THE BEACH and A TOWN LIKE ALICE. Collins takes this work, notable mainly for its author, and elevates it to great fun. Several racial slurs uttered by the hero mar an otherwise good story.
