Publisher's Summary

France, 1916. The Great War. High above the carnage in the trenches, British and German aces joust like knights of old for control of the skies. The strain and tension of living every day on the edge of death leads to dangerous choices and wild risks. When British ace Bat Bryant's past catches up with him, he strikes out in panic and kills the man threatening him with exposure. But there's a witness: the big, handsome American pilot Cowboy Cooper.
Cowboy, it seems, has his own ideas of rough justice.

Lovely story, dubious British accents

This is one of my favourite JL stories, full of unspoken words and repressed loneliness. It is set in the middle of the first world war, when the average life expectancy of an aviatior was eleven days. I do feel the narrator struggled with the English accents of the piece. His voice is lovely, but he clearly struggled with the pinched upper class accents the characters speak in in my head. Despite that an enjoyable listen and I won't be put off listening again.

Lovely short piece

Another enjoyable narration of one of Josh Lanyon's books. A vignette of what life could have been like as a pilot in WWI, open ended but happy for all that.
Some of the pronunciation threw me e.g. US lieutenant rather than UK left-tenant but they were minor issues and not enough to rip me out of the story.
Will listen to this again as I like the characters of Bat and Cowboy.
