England, June 1944.

Exactly one week after the D-Day landings came the vengeance weapons. It was the beginning of a period which, to the war-weary inhabitants of southern England, was psychologically much worse than the days of the Blitz. With Allied forces gaining a foothold after the Normandy landings, Hitler unleashes his most vicious weapon of war yet---the V-1 flying b

“No Human Enemy” eBook was published in 2013 (originally published on paper in 2008) and was written by John Gardner (http://www.john-gardner.com). Mr. Gardner published more than 50 novels. This was the fifth and last of the ‘Detective Sergeant Suzie Mountford’ series.

I received a galley of this novel for review through https://www.netgalley.com. I categorize this novel as ‘PG’ because it contains scenes of Violence. This novel is set in June 1944 England. The Allies have been successful in th

I approached this book with reservations, having read a couple of earlier entries in the series. I enjoyed the author's most distinctive voice, found both interesting and distressing the reminders of where we, as women, come from, got caught up in the plots, liked Suzie a whole lot, and stopped reading the series for a while (years) because of what looked to me like a heavy dose of misogyny. Suzie was cruelly assaulted two books in a row, and that just seemed gratuitous and creepy.

One of John Gardner's last books, this is the final one written in a series about a policewoman during WW2 in England. The basic plot is interesting and it often holds up well, but the book rambles to excess, with so many leaps about in time period and perspective I was hard pressed to keep up with what was going on. Several times I got the impression that Gardner had forgotten the mystery entirely and was filling in with various other stories and things he thought of.

I haven't read the previous

#5 in the woman detective inspector Suzi Mountford in a special section of Scotland Yard during WW II mystery series. This story takes place in London starting in August, 1944. The title comes from the words of Winston Churchill describing the German V-1 rocket bombs which had starting falling on London at this time then followed by the V-2s. Story opens with a V-1 exploding next to a London convent killing 2 nuns and injuring a third. Turns out one "nun" is actually a man who has been murdered. ...more

Last of the series. There was supposed to be a sixth but apparently the John Gardner died before he could write it. A V1 flying bomb land in a convent killing 3 nuns. There's only one problem, one of the nuns is a guy! Detective Suzie Mountford and Tommy Livermore must find out what's going on.

Before coming an author of fiction in the early 1960s, John Gardner was variously a stage magician, a Royal Marine officer and a journalist. In all, Gardner has fifty-four novels to his credit, including Maestro, which was the New York Times book of the year.
