Clever, twisting plot set at a flying club in the 1930s. The background of flying feels really authentic. The story is definitely plot driven. The characters are there to suit the plot but are interesting (though not great) for all that.
I recommend this if you enjoy a good puzzle to which you can see no resolution...... I can see why Dorothy Sayers enthused about this young writer. I am now going to check if Audible has recorded any others.
I enjoyed this story, as I like the old fashioned style of "who dunnit". However, my preference is more for the Agatha Christie style, where you get to know the characters, rather than this sort where you're following all the clues. Having said that, this is good fun to listen to with some twists and turns and even a little romance. Well worth a listen.
