Reviews:
  • Lo◘Ve
This is a good adventure thriller along the lines of Hammond Innes or Alistair MacLean.

Lyall also wrote an enjoyable quartet of historical spy thrillers set in the period leading up to WWI. Starting with Spy's Honour (1993), it traces the fledgling years of the British secret service.

Great

I first read t his book when it was new, back in the mid 50s. I always had it in the back of my mind as one of the most exciting books I had read. Then when I saw the kinkle edition I had another go at it. It is as I remembered.The detail is something few writers bring to their subjects, and the exciting climax is heart pumping with a nice little twist on the last page.

Read it!

Love it. A great story, especially considering it was written many years ago.

Gavin Lyall's (1932-2003) second spy thriller first appeared in 1963. Apart from prices and currencies, it has not aged at all. Bill Cary (BC;39) is a hard-drinking Brit flying clients around Finnish Lapland in a ramshackle Beaver, an amphibious airplane that can land on water and solid ground. He is under contract by a mining company to survey for possible nickel deposits. Otherwise, he flies hunters and tourists to where they want to go. BC reckons he survived WW II as an SIS pilot mainly because he was sacked over an incident in Finland. Eighteen years later history catches up with him in a big way.
At the end of the flying season he meets with an assortment of new people, American, Swiss and a Brit. The Brit worries BC more than the others. Soon, two other water planes crash, killing two persons in one of the accidents. BC knew the owner-pilot. And the passenger too, he was his own mechanic Mikko. Soon after, BC discovers another corpse, a Finnish gangster, himself.
Leaving just one water plane intact and its pilot-owner under scrutiny from local police and Finnish intelligence... I leave other details and what follows for readers to learn and enjoy.
This novel also includes the post-1917 quest for the legendary Volkov treasure, criminals counterfeiting gold sovereigns, a case of insanity, an illegal crossing of the Iron Curtain, even a brief romance. Also, impeccable background and atmosphere and a truly hair-raising description of a night flight under duress, written in only 223 pages in my copy.
Finally, "The Guardian" gave Gavin Loall a glowing obituary in 2003, expressing regret that all of his early spy novels had gone out of print. But they have recently been reprinted again! Bravo.
