I am from South Africa and have tried to buy every single book of his as it becomes available with sometimes serious difficulty. His intimate knowledge of aircraft and their application, makes all his titles extremely enjoyable to any flight fan. Just wondered why none of his books has ever been considered for a movie....would make James Bond look silly !! Even his latest, Tin Man, albeit totally different, was quite enjoyable.

A very good book and scarily relevant considering current events in the middle east. All the books I've read by him so far are excellent, and hard to put down
