Time of Flight
Time of Flight by A. C. Koning is the first novel in the 'Blind Detective' series.
It is 1931, and the world has taken to the air: ’You couldn’t switch on the wireless these days without hearing news of the latest feat by Miss Johnson or Commander Kidson; the newspapers, too, were full of their exploits...’ For blind War Veteran Frederick Rowlands, the craze for flying which seems to have affected all ranks of society holds little interest—after all, he is never likely to set foot in an aeroplane... But then a chance meeting with a famous flier draws him into the glamorous—and dangerous—world of aviation, and he finds himself caught up in a web of suspicion, jealous rivalry, sexual betrayal, and murder.
Praise for Time of Flight.
‘An atmospheric thriller, set in the glamorous world of 1930s aviation, when flying exploits captured the public imagination…’ The Lady
