Summary

Well-known and acclaimed for their fast pace and rich local color, adventure thrillers by the classic action writer are presented here in double doses, each volume including special bonus materials Flyaway: Max Stafford, security consultant, is beaten up in his own office. The Lockheed Lodestar, the famous 1930s aircraft, has a secret. Accountant Paul Bilson has disappeared in North Africa. All of them are indeed connected as the journey to the Sahara desert becomes a race to save Paul Bilson, a race to find the buried aircraft, and--above all--a race to return alive.Windfall: When a legacy of 40 million is left to a small college in Kenya, investigations begin about the true identities of the heirs--the South African, Dirk Hendriks, and his namesake, Henry Hendrix from California. Suspicion that Hendrix is an impostor leads Max Stafford to the Rift Valley, where a violent reaction to his arrival points to a sinister and far-reaching conspiracy, well beyond mere greed. "The Circumstances Surrounding the Crime" is also included, Bagley's true story about an attempted assassination.
