Shabby Bill Carey pilots his doddering amphibious plane over the forests of northern Finland, making a precarious living flying aerial survey flights and occasional charter cargo flights of dubious legitimacy in his beat-up old de Havilland Beaver. Despite his perpetual hangover, Careyï¿½s a wizard with planes and very quick at clues when he suspect plotting and sabotage.
Towards the end of the flying season, a wealthy American hunter hires him to fly into a prohibited part of Finland near the Soviet border in order to hunt bear. Subsequently, he is suspected by the Finnish secret police for smuggling and espionage. Things get even more serious when the American hunter's beautiful sister turns up to search for her brother, and his fellow bush pilots start getting killed off in a series of suspicious accidents. Cary suspects that the events he is increasingly involved in may stem from an incident in his wartime past.
The Most Dangerous Game was a runner-up for the British Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger Award in 1964.
"Lyall has produced a model of the breathtaking narrative in The Most Dangerous Gameï¿½[he] writes with zest and bite; he is a master of the rare art of storytelling." -New York Times Book Review
