THUNDER ABOVE

The air corridor to Berlin in 1953 is still another treacherous Communist channel; Jim Kyle, chief pilot, who flies it, along with Karin, the German born stewardess he loves, is deliberately misled out of the corridor, forced down in Soviet Leipzig where he is jailed, where Karin is handed over to the police, and where Zimmerman, a passenger and a valuable U.S. scientist, suicides. Kyle is finally freed- but returns to Leipzig through underground contacts to retrieve Karin- and together they make their escape to freedom through Hitler's former bunker and a tunnel which leads to the Reichstag.... An adventure story, to which the new backgrounds to danger lend interest, suspiciously synthetic as it may be.
