"First-rate mystery and an engrossing view into a vanished world." —Booklist STARRED review
George Furnace, flight instructor at Baston Aero Club, dies instantly when his plane crashes into the English countryside. People who knew him are baffled—Furnace was a first-rate pilot, and the plane was in perfect condition—and the inquest records a verdict of death by misadventure.
An Australian visitor to the aero club, Edwin Marriott, Bishop of Cootamundra, suspects that the true story is more complicated. Could this be a dramatic suicide—or even murder? Together with Inspector Bray of Scotland Yard, the intrepid bishop must uncover a cunning criminal scheme.
