World War Two scattered the wreckage of countless warplanes across. Not one of the best thrillers from John Gardner still some amount of suspense and mystery that the novel generates while describing the unearthing of a World War II era warplane and an undocumented Nazi secret plan can induce some interest in WWII fiction enthusiasts.

Really wanted works by the American John Gardner, not the spy thriller English one. But it was okay.

While I don't believe The Dancing Dodo was 'hopeless' as another reviewer described it, it certainly isn't John Gardner's best effort.

Dancing Dodo is set in the late 70's when many WWII vets were still young enough to be up to no good. This is a rather typical story of a Nazi plot that went wrong during the war.

When an American plane is found crashed in a field in England, the Americans and Brits are called in for a joint investigation. But things start to go wrong, with people getting sick from a mysterious disease and the pricipal investigator being attached by mouldering corpses.

The novel includes a romantic interlude for the hero and the classic climax at a deserted country manor house. While the answer isn't entirely obvious halfway through, the book isn't particularly suspenseful or well paced.

The Dancing Dodo is a fine read, but it just doesn't go anywhere. You'll probably wish you'd picked up another John Gardner book instead.

Thousands of books, articles etc have been released on Nazis but still there is a passion about the subject. The Dancing Dodo entails the story of the remains of an aircraft which is discovered by some children and after this there becomes a danger of Bio Weapon. Completely hypothetical situation. Also the story is not well paced. Almost a hopeless novel !
