In all fairness, I can not write an honest review about this book.
I'm prejudiced beyond belief when it comes to the adventures of Biggles.
When I read these books, my heart always soars, and I regress into my 7-year-old self and live through these adventures like only a kid can...
These books are no literary masterpieces, but they mean the world to me.

Another all-action adventure for Major James Bigglesworth and his trusty sidekicks Algy Lacey and 'Ginger' Hebblethwaite.

The threesome are relaxing at the aerodrome when Biggles is approached about undertaking a seemingly dangerous job. He is asked to deliver valuable cargoes to the continent by Paul Cronfelt of Cronfelt & Carstairs, bullion brokers and dealers in precious stones.

Biggles somewhat reluctantly agrees to consider the position. His immediate reaction is to decline the job and he

Between the wars Biggles find himself with nothing special to do when he's approached by a bank asking if he can start a transportation company for vulnerable goods. Not being one to back down from a challenge, he and his friends accept, starts Biggles & Company and the action begins.

As most Biggles books it's about the action and the events. Not about the characters and emotions. That said, there is actually a female character in the book and she is not portrayed all wrong. That makes this

The Biggles & Co.'s escape from the castle in this one is just legendary :D It's one of the best Biggles yarns there is.
Also, I hope von Stalhein liked the books Biggles had 'sent' him...

Spannen avontuur met een fikse dosis humor. Vlot leesbaar, netjes chronologisch opgebouwd, een flink aantal mini-hoogtepunten en een grote (en langere) climax. Hoewel het best mogelijk is om het boek na een van de hoogtepunten neer te leggen en later verder te lezen, vermoed ik dat de meesten - zoals ik - het boek meteen uitlezen. Het sleept je gewoon mee en leest zo makkelijk weg dat je helemaal niet merkt hoe de tijd voorbijgaat. De plot zelf bevat niet echt verrassingen al was dat misschien ...more

You can never get to old for Biggles books, they are fun rip roaring adventures. This one is really great as all the best characters are in there, even the best enemy. The book is full of mystery and suspense and highly tense and also amusing scenes. Biggles, Algy, Ginger and even Biggle's arch enemy are all back together here, oh and Raymond too.

These book have a touch of Sherlock Holmes in them and a lot of cool aeroplane flights and ingenious plans that Biggles only decides to tell us about

As a young teenager I must have read dozens of the adventures stories of Biggles written by Captain W. E. Johns. So picking up ‘Biggles and Co’ quite by chance was a trip down memory lane. All my favorite characters were there in a hair rising story. Even Biggles lifetime enemy proofs to have risen from the death, breathtaking. Also surprising to read how the smart Biggles, like a real amateur alchemist changes gold into led. A big surprise, especially for the robbers involved.

I shall probably dream about Algy rising up from the fireplace :) Adventurous story with lots of "old friends" from the first war.
