The Casebooks of Captain Holloway: The Disappearance of Tom Pile
by Ian Beck
Author: Ian Beck
In 1900 in the village of Litton Cheney on a bitter-cold night, a young boy disappears without trace. The boy was never found but the man he was with claims he was taken by angels.
Forty years later, Corporal Jack Carmody is sent to investigate strange reports of mysterious lights above Litton Cheney.
The villagers suspect German bombers overhead, but Carmody knows there's something far more intriguing going on.
Then when a terrified boy appears in the graveyard convinced it’s the year 1900, it’s up to Carmody and his boss Captain Holloway to uncover the truth. Will they succeed?
This World War II book was well paced and enjoyable. It combines ideas not usually seen in war fiction or children’s fiction – you should read it!
