Athan Wilde dreams of flight. When his friend, Mr Chen, is murdered, Athan must rescue the flying machine they were building together and stop it falling into the wrong hands. But keeping the machine safe puts his family in terrible danger. What will Athan choose – flight or family?

From the acclaimed author of Murder In Midwinter, Fleur Hitchcock’s The Boy Who Flew is a thrilling, murderous tale set among the steep rooftops and slippery characters of Athan’s intricately imagined world. Perfect for fans of Philip Pullman, Peter Bunzl and Philip Reeve.

What the Critics Said

“An unputdownable, heart-stopping, white knuckle ride of a book. It will knock your socks off!”

“A cast of sparkling characters in a fast moving and dramatic plot that’s packed with nail-biting action.”

– Madge Eekal Reviews (blog)
