After Midnight By Robert Ryan
Book/Novel Author: Robert Ryan
Book/Novel Title: After Midnight
**A daughters quest to find the father she never knew exposes deadly intrigue within the Italian Resistance in this spellbinding novel of World War II**
On the occasion of his only daughters first birthday, Australian bomber pilot Bill Carr writes her a letter. Later that day, he takes off on a mission over the mountains of Northern Italy and is never heard from again.
Twenty years later, Lindy Carr arrives in Italy to find out what happened to her father. Her guide is Jack Kirby, a daredevil motorcycle racer and pilot who flew Mosquito fighters in the war and spent time among the Italian partisans. Jack knows the region where Bill Carr vanished like his own backyard, and the farther he and Lindy push into the mountains, the more convinced he becomes that he knows something about the fatal flight in question as well. What Jack and Lindy uncover in the picturesque Italian Alps is a secret so earth shattering it will change both their lives forever.
After Midnight *is the 1st book in the Post-War Trilogy, which also includes* Last Sunrise *and* Dying Day.
Ryans mastery of 1940s detail and his ability to discover intriguing but unvisited byways of the war can be taken for granted; but the more recent storyline shows him equally adept at handling a 1960s setting. *The Sunday* *Times*
Ryan skilfully blends fact with fiction. *Time Out London*
