9781519542489: The Dancing Dodo

June, 1976.

The wreckage of World War Two plane The Dancing Dodo is found in remote British marshland.

Inside are the remains of six bodies.

When Wing Commander David Dobson is called in to investigate, he thinks it will just be a routine case, with some dull paperwork to complete.

But things soon start to take a sinister turn when it emerges there is no record of the Dodo having gone missing - and the men apparently identified inside are all still alive.

Dobson teams up with Colonel Bud Hackstead, the American officer in charge of the investigation, yet things only get more baffling.

Just what was Dodo’s original mission?

Why are the bodies it has hidden for so many years not who they say they are?

Why do so many people Dobson and Hackstead talk to end up dead?

When Dobson’s search for answers starts to turn up top secret letters from The Third Reich, he begins to suspect the mystery runs much deeper than he originally suspected...

Is The Dancing Dodo Hitler’s final weapon?

A tense and tough suspense thriller from the author of several James Bond novels.

Praise for John Gardner:

‘A master storyteller at the height of his power’ - Len Deighton

‘Faultless construction and a good deal of narrative pace combine to make this a thoroughly enjoyable read’ – Books

Before coming an author of fiction in the early 1960’s 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. He was also invited by Ian Fleming’s literary copyright holders to write a series of continuation James Bond novels, which proved to be so successful that instead of the contracted three books he went on to publish some fourteen titles, including Licence Renewed and Icebreaker. Having lived in the Republic of Ireland, the United States and the UK, John Gardner sadly died in August of 2007 having just completed his third novel in the Moriarty trilogy, Conan Doyle’s eponymous villain of the Sherlock Holmes series.

Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent publisher of digital books.
