The Ghost of Captain Hinchliffe
"Another riveting tale from David Dennington,
author of The Airshipmen. This time he cleverly weaves together a couple's amazing love and the temptation it faces with the drama of a transatlantic flying record attempt and a spine-tingling psychic connection from beyond the grave that becomes the only hope of preventing a horrific aviation disaster."
David Wright, former journalist with the
Daily Mirror, London.
Millie Hinchliffe lives a near-perfect existence, tucked away with her loving fighter-pilot husband in their picture-postcard cottage in the glorious English countryside. As a mother, artist, classical pianist and avid gardener, Millie has it all.
But when ‘Hinch’ goes missing with a beautiful heiress over the Atlantic in a bid to set a flying record, her world is shaken to the core. Heartbroken and facing ruin, she questions the validity of messages she receives from the ‘other side’— messages that her husband is desperate to help her. In this suspenseful tale of unconditional, love, desperate loss and wild adventure, Hinch charges Millie with an extraordinary mission:
Put a stop to the British Airship Program and prevent another national tragedy.
"A gripping story masterfully told, the book reverberates in the reader's mind long after it is over."
Steven Bauer, former Director of Creative Writing,
Miami University, Oxford, Ohio.
This is an epic love story about the men who flew the great airships during the Golden Age. After a tragic accident aboard the R38/ZR-2 in 1921, American Lou Remington, falls in love with his English nurse and joins the British Airship Program - a morass of infighting and political intrigue - where two teams are set against each other, one to fly to Canada, the other to Egypt and India. Only one team will survive this deadly competition.
The R38/ZR-2 tragedy hangs over the novel like a black cloud and the question becomes not if one of the ships will crash and burn, but when, and who will live and who will die.
