Death of an Airman is an enjoyable and unorthodox whodunit from a writer whose short life was as remarkable as that of any of his fictional creations. When an aeroplane crashes, and its pilot is killed, Edwin Marriott, the Bishop of Cootamundra in Australia, is on hand. In England on leave, the Bishop has decided to learn how to fly, but he is not convinced that the pilot's death was accidental. In due course, naturally, he is proved right. The Bishop and Inspector Bray of Scotland Yard make an appealing pair of detectives, and ultimately a cunning criminal scheme is uncovered.

An exemplar of what the Golden Age did so well. --The Invisible Event blogAbout the Author:
Christopher St John Sprigg was born in Putney in 1907, but left school at 15 after his father lost his job as literary editor of the Daily Express. Christopher started working for a local newspaper. Interested in aviation and writing, he catered for both passions by becoming involved with an aeronautics publishing business, and in 1930 he published The Airship: its Design, History, Operation and Future. This was followed two years later by a book titled Fly with Me: an elementary textbook on the art of piloting, and later by Let's Learn to Fly.
