About the Author
Gerry McCullough has been writing poems and stories since childhood. Brought up in north Belfast, she graduated in English and Philosophy from Queen's University, Belfast, then went on to gain an MA in English. She lives just outside Belfast, in Northern Ireland, has four grown up children and is married to author, media producer and broadcaster, Raymond McCullough, with whom she co-edited the Irish magazine, 'Bread', (published by Kingdom Come Trust), from 1990-96. In 1995 they published a non-fiction book called, 'Ireland – now the good news!' Over the past few years Gerry has had around sixty short stories published in UK, Irish and American magazines, anthologies and annuals – as well as broadcast on BBC Radio Ulster. Her poems and articles have been published in several Northern Ireland and UK magazines, and she has also done readings from her novels, poems and short stories at several Irish literary events. She writes a regular literary blog – Gerry's Books – and guest writes for several other literary blogs. Gerry won the Cúirt International Literary Award for 2005 (Galway); was shortlisted for the 2008 Brian Moore Award (Belfast); shortlisted for the 2009 Cúirt Award; and commended in the 2009 Seán O'Faolain Short Story Competition, (Cork). Gerry currently has three full-length Irish thriller/romance novels available, plus a short story collection:- Belfast Girls - November 2010 (Night Publishing, UK/2012 Precious Oil) Danger, Danger - October 2011 (Precious Oil Publications) Angel in Flight: an Angel Murphy thriller - June 2012 (Precious Oil) The Seanachie: Tales of Old Seamus - January 2012 (Precious Oil) (previously published in an Irish weekly magazine) The Cúirt Award-winning story, 'Primroses,' and the Seán O'Faolain commended story, 'Giving Up,' have been extended and re-written as part of a series of eight more serious Irish short stories – to be published later in 2012. Also in the pipeline are, 'Lady Molly and the Snapper' – a young adult novel set in Dublin; and 'Not the End of the World' – a humorous, futuristic, adult fantasy novel – both coming soon from Precious Oil.

candidate for what I hope will be a new thriller series featuring her. I'm looking forward to reading more about her.
The author has a talent for ending her chapters in such a way that leaves you wanting more, and I always enjoy this in a story. Each character is well written and captures the interest of the reader, especially when it comes to Josh, Angel, and Mickey. Even though the story is being told in the present, there are times the author goes back to give the reader a better picture of why things turned out the way they did. I enjoyed this--I felt it added a lot to the overall plot and realism of the story.
Angel faces a lot of danger in this book, and it's very real. I enjoyed not being able to predict what would happen next or how the story would end. And speaking of the ending, I won't give it away, except to say that it was my kind of ending. This is the first book I've read from this author, but it certainly won't be my last. Highly recommended.
Gerry - great book - thanks :)
There were also other formatting quirks that I found really hard to get my head around. It's such a shame as this would have been a really good book with characters you could really invest in and a plot you could really get your teeth into.
If you can cope with the style, you will probably really enjoy this book.
Angel in Flight does not disappoint...in fact I'd go as far as saying this is my personal favorite. A thriller that packs a real punch.
Don't read this work if Romance is all you are looking for. This goes way beyond the surface thrills of boy meets girl.
Angel Murphy has. through necessity (A turbulent marriage) learned self protection skills...as the book progresses she will need them and then some.
In Greece on a holiday to regroup after her marriage ends, Angel finds herself caught up in far more than the stunning scenery...although author Gerry Mccullough has that marvelous gift of taking you to Greece and with few words you are indeed dining and experiencing the Greek Islands...but and it's a big BUT this is not a travelogue.
The tale is so seamlessly crafted that genre is unimportant. The pacing of the nightmare world that Angel Murphy finds herself flung into is as close to perfect as it gets...the underlying threat of a big pharmaceutical company being prepared to do whatever it takes to keep a vaccine that may prevent the horrors of Malaria under wraps. Money speaks their language...humanity can go to hell.
But Angel is not easily daunted.
She ...ah wait.. that would spoil the book for you, and it's far too good to have that happen.
So...do yourself a favor...get yourself a copy, settle down and...I dare you to put it down. I couldn't.
This is the start of a series, and this reviewer is eager for the next thriller from the multi-talented Gerry McCullough. Bravo!
