Imperial 109, one of the most beautiful and best loved aircraft ever built, was a flying boat of Britain's Imperial Airways. She carried mail, cargo and passengers, in grandeur and luxury, from Durban to Cairo, and on through Greece and Italy to London, then across the Atlantic to New York.
Captain O'Neill and his crew wage a perpetual battle, not only with turbulent weather conditions in the days before reliable navigational aids, but with their own private problems - a marriage broken by long periods of separation, haunting fears of a previous crash, the flowering of a new romance.
This particular flight is no less fraught for the passengers. Amongst them, a crooked financier, an Italian nobleman and his beautiful wife whose passion for a mysterious sheikh endangers them all, and two Jewish refugees, a father and daughter, hounded across Europe by the Gestapo. The epic journey traces hazards in the swamps of the Sud, intrigue in the palaces of Egypt and a career on the line on the eve of the Atlantic flight. All this against a background of mounting tension in the final days before World War II.
And even the safety of America is an illusion. On a quiet lake in New England, an embittered veteran has learned of Imperial 109's cargo of gold bullion and is making ready to transform his life.
