Author Iain Reading Announces the Fifth Book of the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series

Iain Reading (author of the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency, the The Dragon of the Month Club and the Wizards of Waterfire book series) has announced today that the final words of the next Kitty Hawk book have now been written and the whole manuscript will soon be sent off for a final round of editing with an expected release date of late February 2015.

For those unfamiliar with the series the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency is a series of mystery/adventure books for young adults (and adults too) featuring Kitty Hawk, an intrepid teenage pilot with her own De Havilland Beaver seaplane and a nose for mystery and intrigue - imagine a cross between Amelia Earhart and Nancy Drew.

Following her amazing summer adventure in the first book of the series Kitty decides that she wants to fly around the world and in each book that follows she finds herself in various different exotic locations where her knack for solving mysteries and getting herself into (and out of) all kinds of precarious situations leads her to incredible places and experiences that she never could have imagined having.

These books bring to life this amazing planet of ours. Filled with highly Google-able locations and history they are perfect for firing the imaginations of armchair explorers and amateur detectives alike. In total there will eventually be thirteen books in the series and with the first four of those books already released it's time for number five. Continuing on her epic flight around the world Book #5 takes Kitty Hawk to the Eternal City of Rome where she meets up with an old friend and together they find themselves caught up in a bizarre mystery involving stolen paintings, secret rooms, strange voices and cryptic messages.
