Tony Park’s World War II thriller AFRICAN SKY is out in paperback from Quercus, released on 31 July.
AFRICAN SKY is a page-turning aventure set in Rhodesia, 1943: Squadron Leader Paul Bryant has been unable to fly a plane ever since a fatal bombing mission over Germany. Relegated to a desk job training new recruits, his life is lacklustre until one of his trainees is found raped and murdered. Pip Lovejoy, a local volunteer policewoman, has her own tragedies to forget; when she hears about the murder, however, she joins forces with Paul to investigate. Their mutual attraction intensifies as the case becomes more complicated, and the involvement of controversial heiress Catherine de Beers threatens to ruin everything.
Upcoming4.me wrote ‘AFRICAN SKY has everything from hair-raising flying action to espionage, backstabbing, sex and love but scratch the surface and you'll discover hidden depth and well-developed characters.’
