Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
You should never fall in love with a flyer. You should only fall in love with flight. That's what Roxy Loewen always thought, until she falls for fellow pilot Jocoo Zomack as they run guns into Ethiopia. Jocco may be a godless Commie, but his father is a leading art dealer and he's found the original of Bruegel's famous painting, the Fall of Icarus, in war-torn Spain. The money for its retrieval is better than good - if Roxy can just get the painting to Berlin and back out again before Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring and his Nazi pals get their hands on it. But this is 1936, and Hitler's Olympics are in full swing. When the Nazis steal the painting, Roxy and Jocco decide that they are just going to have to steal it back. What happens when Icarus flies too close to the sun? Roxy is going to find out. From African skies to a cellar in Madrid, from the shadow cast by the swastika to the world above the clouds on the Hindenburg's last voyage, in the end Roxy will have just two choices left - and only one bullet.
