On Sunday 28th June 1942 Flight Sergeant Dennis Copping took off in a single seat Kittyhawk fighter for a short flight across Egypt. He never arrived at his destination. Seventy years later in 2012 the aeroplane was found crash-landed, virtually intact, three hundred miles into the Sahara with no sign of the pilot. Jonathan Nicholas has pieced together Dennis Copping’s desert war blending real people, places and events into an exciting new novel, a thrilling wartime desert mystery never-before-told.
