Steve Richie was one of the best pilots in the business. Until, on a stormy night in Manila, the former military aviator ran out of luck and runway.

He fought his way back into the cockpit from injury only for a gut-wrenching fear to threaten to ground him for good.

But not before he completes one last job: to fly a rattletrap twin-engined freighter across Africa to its new owner – no questions asked.

Richie is quickly drawn into a high-stakes game of international arms dealing and diamond smuggling in which his own life is of no consequence.

But while the ex-fighter pilot may be down, he's not out. And those who have bet against him will find out just how much of the Top Gun he once was still survives...

Skytrap is perfect for fans of Frederick Forsyth, Wilbur Smith, Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Mike Lunnon-Wood, Stephen Coonts, Dale Brown and Andy McNab.

Skytrap reminded me of the glory days of Alistair Maclean, Desmond Bagley and Hammond Innes. They don't make them like this anymore. Loved it!’ Rowland White
