Let's Fly


How do you survive when a lucky break turns out to be the worst thing that ever happened to you? 

Nick Hunter is about to find out. He made a colossal mistake when he was barely out of school and now his whole world is in jeopardy as he races against the clock to save his family and his business from disaster. 

In 1979 Hunter heads to London, and a squat in Notting Hill, with dreams of musical success. With his fellow squatters he forms a band and they record four short songs before tensions and misunderstandings drive them apart. Nick lies and tells the record company the songs are all his own work. Six years later one of the songs, Let’s Fly, is picked as the soundtrack to a blockbuster movie and Nick makes a fortune in royalties. 

In 2017, Nick, his wife Sam and daughter Jen now live in the house opposite his old squat. His successful gig economy, online food business is about to go public, but someone is on his back. Nick is in massive debt and the heavies are closing in. Disasters are befalling the business just at the wrong time. Then Sam is snatched and, with a price on her head, Nick must come up with the money or lose her. With his life and family on the line – and just days to play with - Nick has to stop whoever is destroying his life and come clean with those he loves in order to hang on to everything he holds dear.

How do you survive when a lucky break turns out to be the worst thing that ever happened to you?
I enjoyed Nick Hunter's character. This story line usually isn't my favorite but as I kept reading it kept getting better and better! The story is so unique and good!

I enjoyed this book. It is well written with good character development that makes the characters believable and likeable. I found the story hard to gel with at times but that didn’t stop me turning the pages at the speed of light and reading it super quickly.

What was it that Nick had done in his past that is still haunting him now? When Nick was younger he started a band, the story tells of the highs and lows of this era and why Nick is in the current predicament he is in. I would say that this is definitely a coming of age story and part thriller - i enjoyed it, it was different.
