Description - Special Operations by Craig Simpson
One hundred and thirty kilometres per hour . . Now, Loki! I said, seizing the other column in front of me. We both pulled back. The plane bumped and lurched like a runaway train about to derail. Then, suddenly, the pounding ceased and everything seemed mighty smooth. My god, I thought, we re flying! Finn Gunnerson and his best friend, Loki, are mad about planes. Finn wants to follow in the footsteps of his father and become a pilot. But with the Second World War raging on and German soldiers invading his Norwegian village, flying isn t the only thing on his mind. The Resistance movement is making plans to reveal top-secret information to the British, and Finn and Loki are desperate to lend a hand. But talking about risking your lives and actually doing it are two different things. Courage and determination takes them beyond Norwegian shores for more action-packed, full-throttle adventures. So get ready for take-off!

Author Biography - Craig Simpson
Born in the New Forest in 1962, Craig Simpson spent his childhood in southern England. At eighteen he packed his bags and headed off to veterinary school in Bristol. Soon realizing the study of anatomy wasn't for him and that in the wrong hands a scalpel could do more harm than good, he handed in his stethoscope and switched to studying science. The animal kingdom blew a collective sigh of relief. After graduating, he moved to Cambridge and spent a while juggling test tubes before realizing there had to be more to life. After fifteen years scaling the corporate ladder, and travelling widely in Europe and North America, he jumped ship to become an independent consultant. A keen amateur historian and inspired by true stories of remarkable courage shown by ordinary people, he set himself a challenge - to abandon the rat-race and write fictional adventure novels. He now lives between the New Forest and the Hampshire seaside.
