This short story anthology, No Mercy (Sgt Major Crane Story), begins my introduction to Wendy Cartmell’s writing. The book consists of three, quick and easy to read mysteries; No Mercy features, Sergeant Major Crane.
The last story is an autobiographical piece, which I question the author’s reason for including it in a mystery anthology.
The mysteries have a ring of familiarity; I have either read similar stories or have viewed comparative TV shows.
I always appreciate the element of surprise in a good mystery. I expected unpredictable endings to the three mysteries; however bleak, I must express disappointment.
The author’s writing style is flawless for composing mysteries, and readers will notice her passion. I encourage, Wendy Cartmell, to continue writing mysteries in the future, however, adding originality to her stories.
I recommend, No Mercy (Sgt Major Crane Story), by Wendy Cartmell, to readers of all ages.
