Book Description

25 July 2012
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a low-flying Angel! You’ve heard of Lara Croft. You’ve heard of Modesty Blaise. Well, here comes Angel Murphy! Angel, 'a feisty wee Belfast girl' on holiday in Greece, sorts out a villain, wanting to make millions for his pharmaceutical company by preventing the use of a newly discovered malaria vaccine. Angel has a broken marriage behind her and is wary of men, but perhaps her meeting with Josh Smith, who tells her he’s with Interpol, may change her mind? Fun, action, thrills, romance, in a beautiful setting – so much to enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Action-Packed Angel! 13 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Angel made a mistake - she married an abusive man, Mickey Murphy, but she managed to get away from him, learnt self-defence, got a great job and started all over again (becoming a bit smarter and wiser along the way!). In Angel in Flight, she goes to Greece to get away from it all but soon finds herself up against her husband once more and embroiled in murder and mystery. Luckily, a handsome and attractive stranger makes an appearance! (I do love those handsome strangers!) I read this story on my journey into work and soon found myself caught up in it - Angel is an engaging character and you're willing her to come out on top. It's an exciting read, the colourful descriptions of Greece are spot on, the story is very entertaining but also has a serious side and I would definitely recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gerry McCullough does it again! 2 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Angel Murphy is on holiday in Greece recuperating emotionally from her abusive marriage.

She gets into a car mistaken for a taxi and is drawn into a web of intrigue and murder all centred on a CD containing data concerning a vaccine.

Ms McCullough's evocative prose, realistic characterisation and brilliant dialogue make this a thriller which grips you from first page to last as you want to find out what happens to Angel.

If you enjoyed Belfast Girls you will adore Angel Murphy; a feisty heroine with panache and style yet all too aware of her own vulnerabilities.

I can't recommend this highly enough and wish Amazon would allow more stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent thriller 9 July 2014
By ChristophFischerBooks TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
"Angel in Flight" by Gerry McCullough is an excellent and fast paced thriller set in beautiful Greece. Angela Murphy, or Angel, is stunned when she spots her ex-husband Mickey in Athens of all places. She has more reasons than one to avoid him and so her holiday instantly becomes a tense affair.
The sense of tense urgency and danger is immediate in the writing, establishing a great dramatic curve; the setting is atmospheric and we know that there is more drama and complication to come, especially once she meets an old acquaintance, Frank, and then Josh Smith.
Angel is a great and surprisingly tough character who can hold her own against criminals, drunks and men. I liked her as the deep and thoughtful heroine that shows vulnerability and strength and one whose aim is not to find a man and live happily ever after.
The action is based around a vaccine for Malaria but the story is more evolved than that. IT is a very entertaining and enjoyable thriller that showcases a very gifted writer.

Format:Kindle Edition
"Angel in Flight" is a clever title for this book. It presents the reader with multiple interpretations, both literal and metaphorical, that can only be sorted out by reading the book. Of course, the term "angel" predisposes the sentiment of the reader favorably towards any character by this name who is in distress. We can be certain that we are in the hands of an accomplished author. Author Gerry McCullough does not disappoint, as the story opens, "in medias res".

Yes, we are in the middle of things. All we know is that a lady named "Angel" is being chased by men who evidently want to harm her. There is a sense of immediacy and urgency created by the short sentence fragments, coming at the reader as if we ourselves are experiencing these sights and sounds, and reacting to them in an effort to stay alive. By the time chapter one ends, we are fully sympathetic towards Angel. We are also fully engaged with this story. We are slowly losing track of time. All else fades away, time and space, hunger and thirst, nothing else matters, except the reading of this story. (Well done Gerry McCullough)

Yes, it's a fast-paced read, it is exciting, and you can not put this book down. We are completely hooked. Gerry McCullough's use of authorial techniques is masterful in this book. The cover is visually appealing, the title is clever, the "in medias res" technique is engaging, the protagonist is lovable from the moment we meet her and the back story is given out appropriately. Other reviewers have adequately covered the plot, there is no need for me to repeat their words in this review. "Angel In Flight" is highly recommended (five stars) for anyone who enjoys reading a good thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 30 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed this book. It was very fast-paced with lots of action and suspense. Also a nice setting (Greece) and a great lead character (Angel Murphy). I'm looking forward to reading 'Angel in Belfast' which I've downloaded.

4.0 out of 5 stars a real page turner 31 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very easy read, suitable for travel. Short chapters go by unnoticed as you get into the plot.
Good locations interwoven with an almost believable plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our own Belfast Girl 31 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had read Belfast Girls by Gerry and would rate it in my top 5 books of last year. considering the fact I read at least two books a week! I was prompted to read Angel In Flight after Gerry kindly gave up her time to read at an Open Source venue in Belfast.

Angel in Flight is a hotchpotch of different things ......belfast, attitude, sun, action, romance......

I normally do not normally read action type books ....but Angel Murphy I can't wait to continue to follow your adventures!!
