Hang Time

By John Burke

Treachery is only a moment away…

What objections could there possibly be to plans for developing an abandoned East Anglian airfield into a theme park commemorating the American presence during World War II and the Cold War? A hard-working partner in the family’s wine and beer distribution business with warehouses close to the airfield, one-time Captain Craig, with an eventful military career behind him, does not expect to be drawn into mysterious undercurrents in the whole project, while at the same time grappling with his own problems in a passionate affair with the beautiful, uninhibited wife of a devious MP.

Only gradually does he realize that someone who has long borne him a grudge has been manipulating bewildering events, leading to his being charged with abduction and possibly murder.

John Burke was born in Sussex in 1922. He served in the Royal Air Force, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, and the Royal Marines during the war. After working for the publishers Museum Press and the Books for Pleasure Group, he was a Public Relations and Publications Executive for Shell (1959-63) and Story Editor for Twentieth Century-Fox (1963-65) before becoming a full-time writer in 1966.
