It’s 1924, and Bandy is making a solo flight across the Atlantic in the Gander, a seaplane of his own design. Not for fame though he’s fleeing from arrest for train robbery, from his job as Minister of Defence, and from his would-be assassin and friend George Garanine. From Iceland, to Iraq, to St Pancreas Hospital in London, Bandy’s career has never been more complicated, or his luck more of a roller coaster. When he finds new employment as Deputy Supreme Being of a mercenary air force, Bandy begins to feel that the whole British Empire has a grudge against him. But at least the pay is good…

"For Bartholomew Bandy followers, this is a must... For those to whom Bandy is a newcomer, what a treat is in store. You have a chance to shake by the hand one of Canada's finest comic creations, bashful Bandy." -Toronto Star

"Bandy is involved in a series of incredible adventures and hilarious incidents that take him from Iceland to Iraq and from mystery to mayhem... Jack's comic novel is extraordinary and delightful." -St John's Evening Telegram

My favorite books ever
October 2nd, 2013
I have read and re-read all of the books in this series, whenever i have needed a respite from normal fiction, i turn back to my beaten, brown paged old copies or my recently replaced electronic versions, to have a full belly laugh. I would and have recommended these books to any Canadian who wonders just who we are, you will find a piece of us here. And you will laugh!
