Description

A story of a dangerous conflict of interests between the police and the intelligence services, based on the iconic 1970’s British television series.
In the early hours of the morning, following an anonymous tip-off, Detective Chief Inspectors Craven and Haggerty ambush a boat landing on the south coast near Eastbourne. In the shoot-out that follows, several people are killed and the boat’s cargo is found to consist of automatic weapons, ammunition, mortar bombs and explosives.
Clearly a terrorist operation is being mounted but who or what is the target?
Craven and Haggerty’s investigation is hampered from the beginning by Strand, a senior MI5 officer, who orders them not to pursue a line of enquiry which they feel might lead them to the truth.
The climax comes with a terrifying race against time to locate the terrorists and save the life of the US President.

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’.
