The Shepherd | [Frederick Forsyth]

The Shepherd

It is Christmas Eve, 1957. Flying home, on leave from Germany, he is alone in the cockpit of the Vampire. Sixty-six minutes of flying time, with the descent and landing - destination Lakenheath. No problem, all routine procedures.Then, out over the North Sea, the fog begins to close in. Radio contact ceases and the compass goes haywire. Suddenly, out of the mist, appears a WorldWar II bomber. It is flying just below the Vampire, as if trying to make contact.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just about!


    Any additional comments?

    I first heard the story by accident on CBC, driving in the FL panhandle on X-mas Eve. Read by the author it lasted around 1/2 hour (45 min?) and I thought that's all there was. Have to admit I never read the book. But i loved the story and found that short version of it on X-mas stories CD and I've listened to it count less times since. So I approached this rendition with a lot of apprehension. Now I love it as much as the first rendition I've heard! I love the additional material that missing from the short version. Narrator does an excellent and convincing job as well. Listed to it twice in the 24 hrs since purchase. I have to disclose that I'm extremely biased toward stories dealing with flying. Being a pilot myself I tend to associate into the story a lot, and imagination gets easily set off :-)
