Bob Winrush used to fly passengers then worked for years as a 'freight dog' flying consignments of goods and sometimes people to all the corners of the world including bush strips in war zones ' real flying' as he called it Until one day he walked away from a deal that didn't smell right something a freight dog should never doNow working as a private pilot for an Emirate prince in Dubai he finds that moment The central character of this novel Bob Winrush is a freight pilot who has made a good living by being willing to fly missions in those parts of the World where health and safety rules are flexibly applied and by not asking too many uestions about the nature of the cargo being carried One day however he angers his paymasters by walking out on a particularly dodgy looking deal A lucky break gets him a job flying a private plane for an Arab Prince but 2 years later his past catches up with him when he is contacted by a left wing journalist on the trail of arms and drug smugglers All of a sudden Bob starts to hear of former crewmates dying in sudden accidents Another former crewmate tells him of a property he has inherited on a remote Scottish island available for rent and Winrush decides this is the moment for a change of name and career Are his fears exaggerated or are even the Outer Hebrides insufficiently far for him to hideI enjoyed this novel It falls within the thriller category but the plot is mainly one of threat and menace rather than constant action The second part takes place in the Outer Hebrides a part of the country I know fairly well The author clearly knows the islands too as he makes some razor sharp and to me very funny observations about the landscapes lifestyle and weather conditions Surprisingly though he doesn t seem to have an ear for the local accent and speech patterns and the spoken dialogue he attributes to the islanders includes words and phrases that belong to parts of Scotland much further south and east For most people this will be an irrelevance though and on balance this is a well written novel Washington!

    I read this book as Hebridean themed reading during a holiday I have not read Adam Thorpe before but had heard good things of Ulverton Flight I found disappointing I read a lot of fiction and hope that what I read will either stir my soul though the beauty and poetry in the writing andor make me uestion and consider something about being human I'm not sure flight did either I suppose it's subject would appeal
