By Michael Asher

1946. A plane crashes in the deserts of North Africa. Fourteen-year-old Billy Sterling regains consciousness to find himself alone among the wreckage. He soon finds the body of the pilot, a war hero, and a cryptic map, more like a pirate’s treasure map than a serious navigational tool. But there is no sign of the plane’s co-pilot. Billy is confident someone will come for him. Someone does, but not anyone he expects… Seven years later, a stranger contacts Billy’s grieving father, George Bridger Sterling, claiming to be the lost co-pilot. Hours later, the informant is found murdered. Armed with the information that Billy’s plane did not go down where he was told it had, Sterling sets out to discover the truth. Why did the plane take a different route? And why was Billy on board at all? Along with an eccentric private investigator, Eric Churchill, Sterling travels into the desert. But he is not the only one still looking for Billy after all these years…
