Christmas Eve, 1957 - a young R.A.F. pilot is guiding his Vampire jet fighter high over the North Sea, his mind on home and the holiday leave ahead. Gradually he notices that the hum in his headphones has ceased and that the compass needle is drifting lazily around the clock, passing through east, west, south, and north with total impartiality. The plane's entire electrical system has blown: with no radio and rapidly dwindling fuel supply, with fog rolling in and bail-out into the freezing sea as sure a death as going down with the plane, it seems certain that this is the pilot's last Christmas Eve. How he lives to tell the tale is a gem of a story, one whose power and beauty will enthral across the seasons so long as there are readers and listeners to attend.
