Harry Whittington wrote in every genre except science fiction. Versatility was his strong suit. That skill comes into play in The Devil Wears Wings. The Devil Wears Wings is a caper novel. Buz Johnson was an ace pilot in World War II and Korea. But once he leaves the military, Johnson spirals down, down, down. The cause of most of Johnson’s problems is alcohol. When the story opens, Buz Johnson has been reduced to giving flying lessons in a small Florida town. Johnson is approached by creepy Sid Coates who has a scheme to make both of them rich. Coates needs a pilot to fly a plane to make his bank robbery plan work. Reluctantly, Buz Johnson agrees to fly the get-away-plane. Whittington, as always, throws in plenty of plot twists and turns. If you haven’t read Harry Whittington, The Devil Wears Wings is a good place to start.
