Wendy Cartmellabout this book: No Mercy is the title story, from this collection of mystery stories, featuring new British Army detective, Sgt Major Crane. He has to investigate a case of arson on Aldershot Garrison, where a soldier burned to death in his own house. Working closely with Aldershot Police, he and DI Anderson find the perpetrator - but it's not who they thought!
This was the first short story I wrote featuring Sgt Major Crane. I then incorporated this into the first Sgt Major Crane novel, Steps to Heaven. So if you love british crime fiction, try this new take on the police procedural novel.
The remaining stories were written as pieces for my writing group. All have a twist in the tale. The final story is a humorous autobiographical piece set in the 1970's.
The cover was designed by my husband, who is also the inspiration for Sgt Major Crane and is drawn from his 22 years service in the British Army.
