A real Boy's Own Adventure novel, with our hero getting into all kinds of scrapes. It's fast-moving, with car & motorbike chases, villains & spies, as the Erk, an innocent abroad, goes from barracks to digs, from Manor House to market pub, rags to riches, never quite understanding what's happening, which is the real joy of the novel, as you feel it could happen to you.

This is a shocking book; that is, it’s not for the faint-hearted!
Death, and what is going to happen to us after death, is perhaps the final taboo, and this publication tackles the subject head on, taking no prisoners.
The author gives a good overview of the Bible, with its constant theme of God wanting to save his people, and challenges the reader to consider why and how we need to be saved, and from what?
God’s desire is that everyone is saved, and the author has the same desire for his readers, so he does not mince his words when giving the consequences of whatever decision we make, which is left to our free will: will you choose to go your own way, or follow the way of Jesus? Either decision could lead to death, he tells us, but only one decision leads to eternal life.
The title suggests it is for RAF personnel, and has some references to life in the RAF, but it is equally for anyone who wants to be sure what they’re going to be doing after they die, which, let’s face it, we are all going to do, so I suggest now’s the time to read this, before it’s too late.
The Yorkshire Erk does some growing up as he comes to terms with "civvy" life, but still has plenty of adventures to keep you turning the pages. The author fills out the characters in this novel, as he explores the relationships between them, and brings in a love interest. A good read!
