About this ebook

Desperate for pilots to fight overseas in World War 2, the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) was formed and volunteered to take over domestic military flying duties. Not everyone was pleased to see women enter into this man’s world.
In 1943 at a base near Tucson, Arizona, aircraft mechanic Sergeant Joe Clark was ordered to create an ‘incident’ to discredit a WASP. The minor incident went awry, killing the woman pilot, driving Joe to despair. Joe was transferred to a remote base in Alaska to keep him quiet for the duration of the war.
Returning and meeting up with Dawn Dunham, a WASP he met in Marana, they decided to expose the campaign of sabotage. After perpetrators discovered their efforts, Dawn was murdered. The hunt was on for Joe.
After forty years in hiding, eighty-year-old Joe returns to Tucson. The nightmares are back, and he confesses to another WASP, Sylvia James. They resolve to expose this plot and those responsible.

Robert Clayton

Robert Clayton Long-time Tucson resident R. L. Clayton's career as an author began in earnest when he published his first book in 2012. "I wanted to write a story about human evolution going forward, the theme in the Evolution River Series. Sea Species is the unrecognized next step occurring now. The true scope of the age of genetics is beyond our understanding. Clayton's science fiction trilogy, The Evolution River Series takes a fanciful path from humans today to the eventual end of evolution. Clayton's next endeavor, Wings of the WASP was a departure from science fiction. "My mother was a pilot in WWII, a member of the Women Airforce Service Pilots. I wanted to write a story about them, but not another documentary." This historical novel is based on an incident that happened to his mother, and though fiction, it portrays many of the issues those women faced and illustrates the spirit of the WASP. In yet another genre, Clayton published Dead & Dead For Real in 2016, the first book in his "Dead" series of techno-thrillers. This fast-paced series explores chilling all-too-real scenarios. The second book, Dead Reckoning also was published in 2016. The third book, Dead Again was published in 2018 and the fourth book, Risen from the Dead was published in 2019. All of Clayton's books take place in Arizona and the Tucson area. Readers will recognize places and descriptions. "I have self-published my books because I'm impatient." His books are available at a local bookstore, Mostly Books. Both print and e-books are available online. Visit his websites www.evolutionriver.com and www.rlclaytonbooks.com for links.
