This was another great book in Dawn’s Forgotten Coast Series. Maggie and her fellow policemen are searching for a killer who strangled a woman and threw her in the bay. There are several suspects, few twists to keep you interested. The story moves nicely even with Maggie dealing with a few personal problems.
Hornet Flight is a fast-paced WWII thriller that centers on the adventures of Harald Olufson, an industrious, self-sacrificing Danish youth of eighteen, a classic Scandinavian blond with an ingrained love of tinkering with engines and getting things to work. It is this particular characteristic that drives the story forward. Harald is about to undertake a serious mission for the Allies that will have serious repercussions for the war effort. Harald must deliver sensitive photos of an ultra-secret German radar tower located on the Jutland Peninsula to England by flying a dusty, broken-down old Hornet Moth biplane across the North Sea. And all without flying lessons. Along the way, we meet many interesting, well-developed characters such as Reverend Olufson, his stern Evangelical Lutheran father, Peter Fleming, the fascist and frustrated police detective, and Hermia Mount, the courageous MI6 operative who is also in love with Harald’s brother.
