Flight Author Adam Thorpe

Te the presence of Judith the alluring environmentalist memories of his uglier flights return to haunt him Even in the furthest Hebrides his past is with him and the predators are closing inAdam Thorpe's tenth novel is an extraordinary amalgam a vertiginous page turning thriller and a masterful work of literary fiction Fast funny and very frightening Flight shows a new facet of this most brilliant of writer.

Bob Winrush used to fly passengers then worked for years as a 'freight dog' flying consignments of goods and sometimes people to all the corners of the world including bush strips in war zones ' real flying' as he called it Until one day he walked away from a deal that didn't smell right something a freight dog should never doNow working as a private pilot for an Emirate prince in Dubai he finds that moment.

    Reminds me a bit of Gerald Seymour but a watered down Gerald Seymour I found that Flight really didn't take flight ; until 23s of the way through when Bob finds his way to the Hebrides and it seemed like the writing picked up strength too as at times you could really feel the damp beauty of the Hebrides dripping from the
