He was different from everyone else.He always left an impression of greatness - there is no other word - and aroused interest as no one else could.' 'Too Close to the Sun' is a story of big guns and small planes, princes from England and sultans from Zanzibar, a famous divorce case, a Welsh castle and a Gilbertine priory, marauding lions, syphilis, bankruptcy, self-destruction and the tragedy of the human heart.Sara Wheeler reveals the truth behind Fincg Hatton's love affairs with the glamorous aviatrix Beryl Markham and with Karen Blixen, the Danish coffee-farmer who famously immortalised their romance in her memoir 'Out of Africa'.She tracks her quarry from a dreamlike Edwardian childhood in a Lincolnshire mansion through to the purgatorial battlefields of the East Africa Campaign - one of the last remaining untold stories of the First World War.As with her acclaimed biography of Apsley Cherry-Garrard, she uses a biography to illuminate a generation.An elusive hero in the mythic story of the British settlers in East Africa, Finch Hatton was the open road made flesh.He crashed his Gypsy Moth into the Voi hills in 1931, dying 'as he would have chosen in the open air, amid the wide spaces that he loved, fearless and free to the end'.

In the early hours of 24 January 1941, Captain the Hon. Josslyn Victor Hay, 22nd Earl of Erroll, hereditary High Constable of Scotland and Kenya's Assistant Military Secretary, was shot in the head. His body was shoved into the footwell of his hired Buick, which was run off the road.The murder might have passed unnoticed: an unremarkable detail in a corner of the British Empire distracted by the Second World War. But a sensational trial, in which complex social comings and goings titillated the watching audience with tales of love affairs and wild parties, and a 'not guilty' verdict meant that Lord Erroll's memory would not discreetly fade.Extraordinarily, the murder has never been reinvestigated, and Erroll's killer has never been found, the coroner's last word on the subject being that it was 'murder by persons unknown'.It was one of the century's great unsolved crimes. Behind the diverting tales of white mischief among the settlers of Kenya's Happy Valley lies the uncomfortable truth: someone wanted Erroll dead, and the motives and means and identity of that person have never been properly explained.Until now. Errol Trzebinski, biographer of Denys Finch Hatton, Beryl Markham and the Kenya pioneers, is uniquely placed to reopen the investigation into the mysterious death of Lord Erroll.She knows the people and the places, and has unrivalled access to Erroll's surviving friends and family circles.She didn't set out to seek a killer previously overlooked in all the colourfully distracting images of the Happy Valley set, but that is what she found.And she has uncovered a plot that stretches from a dusty crossroads on the Ngong-Nairobi road to the heart of British power in Whitehall. For the first time, the life of Lord Erroll, the threat he posed and the dangerous friends and enemies he gained can properly be revealed.At the heart of the story is no crime of passion or lover's feud but a carefully constructed kill.
