KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of The Donnington Legend and Cone of Silence offers a sleek entertainment in this tale of a heroic Group Captain in the RAF whose career passes in review and the shiftier side of his distinguished service record is exposed. The end of the war the pilot unprepared for any other life, or freedom itself, and as he stays on in the service, he finally faces the precarious premise of his career and his raison d'etre. A fable of fallibility describes man's uncertainty in an uncertain age. A theme of no small importance to the older teens.
