Spencer Dunmore's novel is set against the gigantic canvas of the air battles of World War II. His protagonist is Ernst Brehme, a fighter pilot serving with the Luftwaffe. But Brehme is no ordinary flyer. He possesses the one-in-a-million combination of qualities that makes him the complete master of his profession - one of the top-scoring pilots of all time - a national hero, idolized, adored. Like so many of his contemporaries, however, Ernst Brehme knows infinitely more about the business of death than about life. Young and naive, he falls deeply in love with a French Jewess several years his senior. Their ill-starred romance is a central theme of this tense, totally gripping adventure.

Inspired storytelling and fascinating aeronautics are among the most distinguished features of Spencer Dunmore's writing, as witnessed by Bomb Run, Collision, Final Approach and Means of Escape.

Now Ace outdoes them all.

About the author: Spencer Dunmore was a schoolboy in Yorkshire, England during World War II and watched bombers limping home to the RAF airfields there. His imagination was fired by this experience to the extent that he became an expert on the war in the air, 1939-1945, and his accounts of the bombers and fighters involved are renowned for their accuracy. Dunmore left Britain for Canada in the mid-50s where he was an advertising executive for many years. Dunmore is now a full-time writer and a private pilot on weekends and resides in Ontario.
