When young Sharon Lacey travels from Canada to England in the spring of 1940 in search of the father she never knew, she finds herself called upon to participate in a much larger and more dangerous mission. For at eighteen, she is a gifted flier in an England desperate for pilots to fend off the impending attack from Hitler's Luftwaffe. In the months that follow, Sharon will be tested in ways that will affect the rest of her life--should she survive.

With Blackbirds, award-winning mystery novelist Garry Ryan turns his hand towards historical fiction, vividly evoking the fear and uncertainty of wartime England, as well as the spirit of camaraderie and adventure shared by the men--and women--who stepped forward to defend it.

Garry Ryan taught for a little over thirty years in Calgary Public Schools. In 2004, he published his first Detective Lane novel, Queen's Park. The second, The Lucky Elephant Restaurant, won a 2007 Lambda Literary Award. He has since published three more titles in the series: A Hummingbird Dance, Smoked, and Malabarista. In 2009, Ryan was awarded Calgary's Freedom of Expression Award. Blackbirds is the first novel in a series.
