"NO ENEMY" (Chrondisp 3)
"NO ENEMY" is a follow-up to Chrondisp 2, where Westblock
have discovered a way to track when and where the rival
Asiablock are sending Observers with their time travel
But Westblock are baffled to find Asiablock are sending out
many Observers to study historical events that should
apparently have no interest for them. To try to find why they
are doing this, Captain Digby is sent out to Observe one in
greater detail. Using a young Indonesian boy as his Host, he
witnesses the monstrous explosion of Tambora in 1815.
Meanwhile Westblock notice that Asiablock are building a
number of curious constructions in Northern China. Digby, with
his ex-US Marine friend Jim go out to investigate one.
Still no clearer as to what is happening, Westblock send
Digby back to Observe a bizarre naval action between a Royal
Navy frigate and a pirate sloop off the coast of North Africa
"NO ENEMY" is a SF/detective/adventure story, describing how
Westblock piece together all the odd pieces of information to
find that Asiablock are working on an ingenious and deadly new
weapon. In the last scene Digby and Ning McGregor, the
beautiful half-Scots/half-Chinese interpreter, sabotage it,
causing also the deaths of its inventor Dr Lin Chung and his
sponsor, the evil Shan Tien.
