Orps Moran's loyalty is tested as he agrees to help his friend even though he has acted treasonabl. One of Shute s earliest books written before he had really settled in to his style It has the fussiness that one expects from him without the saving grace of a rattling good story He fails to bring out the relationships between his characters in a clear manner eg his relationship with Shiela doesn t seem real and it s never made clear why he decided not to blow the whistle on Lenden at the start Several incidents test the reader s willingness to suspend disbelief showing Shute s lack of experience the ease with which he is able to hide the airplane the convenient presence on a country estate of a skilled airplane mechanic just when he needs one the sudden unexplained appearance of Stenning to save the situation at the end the willingness of the Fascisti to help him when it was not in their economic interest to do soAll in all a book that would appleal only to dedicated fans of Nevil ShuteNote Like several of Shute s books this one was published elsewhere under a different title The Mysterious Aviator

To a bedraggled pedestrian he is amazed to discover an old wartime comrade from the Royal Flying C. It pains me to give any novel by Nevil Shute fewer than five stars but he hadn t uite hit his stride yet in this his second of 26 gripping novels Usually I feel a real emotional bond with the characters but I didn t uite connect to the main character Peter Moran and the love interest Sheila However this novel still features the Shute trademark ordinary people going about their everyday business who are suddenly thrust into a situation that demands heroic ualities The best part of the book is when Peter sets off on his dangerous mission after a lingering farewell with Sheila and then not content to remain behind wringing her hands she charters a plane and shows up to save the day
