Stray Pilot by Douglas Thompson (brief note)

Second paragraph of third chapter:

No bad, ta. Kenny got terrible sunburn and drank too much Sangria, the daffy. Flight delayed for two hours on the way back, the usual shite. How did you get on with my stand-in what) I was away then? My stunt double? Young Becky, was it?

Failed to grab me and I put it down after 50 pages. You can get it here.
