Description

Not all global pandemics happen by accident.

At first all high-profile TV journalist Fleur Nichols and microbiologist Dr. Simone Gofre have in common is a powerful and self-absorbed devotion to their partners.

But in their dangerously overpopulated world ISIS struggles on, Al Qaeda has been reborn and the war on terror continues, ever more vicious and amoral.

In the outer reaches of the CIA, where Don Costello operates, and the inner sanctum of MI5, where Wenna Cavendish is Head of the Eastern Desk, conflicting plans are put into operation.

When the worlds of the lovers, the terrorists and the Security Services collide, potent emotional bonds are shattered and the effect on their world, and ours, is catastrophic.

If you’re reading this, it hasn’t happened…

Yet.

    I had the opportunity to sneak a brief read of “Killing Tomorrow”, but only got 60 pages in and now cannot wait to get my own copy! The story is totally gripping, his style has enabled me to visualise every detail in my mind’s eye. I would love to see this story played out on the big screen, & believe that it would make a hugely successful movie!

Peter Hill’s background is steeped in crime. He was a detective in the Metropolitan Police, London, serving in some of the toughest parts of that city for thirteen years. He also worked at New Scotland Yard in the Company Fraud Department and later the internationally recognised C1 department known as ‘The Murder Squad’. He travelled widely in Britain, Europe and South America investigating, surprisingly enough, murders.

He left the force at the age of thirty two, with the rank of Detective Inspector, to become a writer. In the 1970’s he wrote six books in his own name, all published worldwide and in several translations: The Hunters, The Liars, The Enthusiast, The Savages, The Fanatics and The Washermen.

These have now been converted back from hard copies and The Hunters, The Liars, The Enthusiast and The Savages in the ‘Staunton and Wyndsor’ series are now available as eBooks in the Kindle store.
The others, The Fanatics and The Washermen in the ‘Commander Allan Dice’ books are also now available as Kindle ebooks.

Under the pen name of John Eyers he wrote the sequel to Terry Nations ‘Survivors’ novel,
“Genesis of a Hero” which were spin offs from the iconic TV series.
Similarly as John Eyers, he wrote “Special Branch – In at the Kill” from the Special Branch TV series.
These have now also been published as eBooks on Amazon.

Peter worked extensively in television for iconic British drama series such as ‘Callan’, ‘The Sweeney’, ‘Z Cars’, ‘Public Eye’, ‘The Bill’, ‘Special Branch’, ‘Crown Court’, ‘New Scotland Yard’, and ‘Armchair Theatre’.
He has been a writer, script editor and producer both in the UK and New Zealand, where he has lived for the last thirty-three years.

‘Evolution’s Path’ is a return to writing novels and is proposed as a series of related near and far future crime stories, of which ‘Killing Tomorrow’ now available as an eBook, is the first. He is working on the sequel, ‘The Ladies Game’.
