Local author, Terry Stanton, will visit Forster and Taree Libraries this month to talk about his latest novel, ‘No Mayday! No Mayday!’.
Terry is a retired English solicitor living in NSW with his wife Christine. This is Terry’s second novel, his first ‘Deliver me from Evil’ is about the real 17th Century Earl of Strafford whose head was cut off by Parliament.
He wrote No Mayday! No Mayday! because the official accounts of MH370 seemed not to add up, but his book is fiction, not representative of any real person and explores what might have happened.
The book’s main character, is Lynn Galloway, a television reporter from Sydney who is filming at Sydney Airport when a distraught Australian woman harangues her. The woman’s husband was on a plane flying to Beijing when the plane vanished, now everyone wants to know what happened. How and why did it disappear? Was the plane hijacked or did the pilot commit suicide? Did it crash somewhere?
Lynn investigates further and uncovers a lead while visiting her boyfriend in a Buenos Aires Hospital. She uncovers a terrible secret and her life is in danger. Readers have described the plot as “riveting” and Terry will be available to chat about how he came up with the different twists and turns.
“We’re delighted to welcome Terry to our Libraries, a visit made even more special because he’s a MidCoast local,” said MidCoast Council’s Manager of Libraries, Chris Jones.
“The MH370 case has gripped the world and Terry’s adaptation of what might have happened is fascinating.”
Terry will be talking at Forster Library on Monday 15 March at 2pm, followed by Taree Library on Thursday 25 March at 2pm.
Both events are free but bookings are essential.
