Who’s trying to kill Cicero Clay?

“I am innocent. The blogs 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.”

Aviation novels, flying adventures, it’s all here in one fast moving package featuring the P51 Mustang, escort to the B17 squadrons that took down the Third Reich.

Soaring NZ Magazine’s review stated it’s “…a rattling good ride…really good and totally believable…”

Among mysteries and thrillers, what could be hotter than a botched diamond theft and a woman’s murderous lust for power? When these set deadly traps for wrongly-convicted Cicero Clay, he must evade a corrupt parole system and survive pursuit through night skies in a vintage WWII P51 Mustang fighter. This is fighter pilot fiction from the viewpoint of an innocent convict!

Set in the worlds of high-performance soaring, aerial combat, WWII fighter aircraft, the world’s most expensive diamonds and lovely, quirky women, Baldwin’s aviation-themed mystery novel is “a wonderful 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 realties 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 history.

A flying book among aviation novels and flying adventures, fighter pilot fiction about the p51 mustang in aerial combat, among leading mysteries and thrillers kindle best sellers…
