Gavin Lyall (1932-2003) was a Royal Airforce pilot, journalist, and prolific author of spy and aviation thrillers. I rather liked this book - a bit different from Gavin Lyall's others where the heros tend to be aeroplanes. Interesting to read a novel set in a forgotton segment of history. His years as a Royal Air Force pilot lent his fast paced, tautly written aviation thrillers authenticity. His first novel, The Wrong Side of the Sky, was inspired by his personal experiences in the Libyan and Greece and became an international bestseller.
