The chilling thriller from an international bestselling phenomenon.
It is Christmas Eve, 1957. Flying home, on leave from Germany, he is alone in the cockpit of the Vampire. Sixty-six minutes of flying time, with the descent and landing - destination Lakenheath. No problem, all routine procedures.
Then, out over the North sea, the fog begins to close in. Radio contact ceases and the compass goes haywire. Suddenly, out of the mist appears a World War II bomber. It is flying just below the Vampire, as of trying to make contact...
The Shepherd, by Forsyth
I love this story.
This is a story that I both listen to and read every Christmas eve. It has a feel of mystery as well as fear. The writing is superb - not a wasted word by Forsyth.
I highly recommend it.
