4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Fred R. Eichelman on February 18, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I am still amazed at being the first to review these books on Susie Mountford as they are clearly in a class by themselves. John Gardner is easily the best mystery/thriller/spy novelist on planet Earth and only Les Roberts comes close to him in the mystery line. I consider myself an avid reader and as a teacher have used mystery and spy novels in the classroom and Gardner has been and remains number one.

Angels Dining At The Ritz has a special meaning in that this one takes us more into the war than the last two which dealt with the blitz. In this third one in the series, Gardner introduces us to the first of the USAAF to arrive and the first missions of the Flying Fortresses. The 8th Air Force is woven beautifully into the story.

The story itself has WDS Susie Mountford, and her superior as well as boy friend, DVC the honorable Tommy Livermore on the case. This time a bloody murder outside of London with overtures of organizaed crime again. Added to the mix is one of the most frightening lunatics you can find in fiction, Golly Goldfinch. Once again the author gives real depth to all the characters and you feel you especially know the heroine. As in the first two books, there are real Hitchcock twists again.

One more book in the series to read and the author is thankfully working on the fifth one. I recommend this series highly. Wonderful reading.
