Angle of Attack
An Adventure in Aviation, Love, and Crime
A botched diamond theft and a woman's murderous lust for power set deadly traps for wrongly-convicted Cicero Clay, who must evade a corrupt parole system and survive pursuit through night skies in a vintage WWII Mustang fighter.
"I am innocent. The newsblogs refer to me as Cicero Clay, glider flight instructor and paroled convict. But I didn't do it. I can prove it. And no, you don't want to call me by my first name. I am Clay."
...so begins Lee Baldwin's Angle of Attack. In the words of one Amazon reviewer, "Lee Baldwin has captured the pace of James Lee Burke and the descriptive ability of John Steinbeck."
Soaring NZ Magazine's review stated it's "...a rattling good ride...really good and totally believable..."
Set in the worlds of high-performance soaring, WWII fighter aircraft, the world's most expensive diamonds and lovely, quirky women, Baldwin's 2012 mystery novel is "a wonderful afternoon read" that "pushes all the right mystery buttons," according to other reviewers
So, who is the dead man on Clay's porch? How can a glider become a murder weapon? Who is it drugs Clay, then slides into his bed late at night? Who stole his Parole Agent's diamond necklace?
Baldwin interleaves plot threads like a master, his tale rooted in everyday realities keeps raising the stakes until the reader is flying through night skies in a stolen warbird, trying to avoid disaster while heading for a place in aviation history.
