Description

The CIA think she is a Jihadist sympathiser.
The Jihadists think she is a CIA informant.
A professional assassin thinks she is responsible for the murder of her CIA lover.

They all want feisty British journalist Fleur Nichols dead.

If that wasn’t enough her partner has been killed by a suicide bomber in Pakistan and the whistleblowing documentary they were working on has been suppressed by the government.
Now it seems that Wenna Cavendish, deputy head of MI5 and once her friend has turned against her.
But the biggest threat of all is the deadly virus that has been loosed on the world, leading to the closure of international borders and the imposition of Martial Law.

As the death toll rises and the killers close in, Fleur discovers she is pregnant. The seemingly impossible fight is on to protect herself and her unborn child from her adversaries and to preserve the kind of democratic society she has always fought for.

A gripping, fast moving thriller set in an ominously believable near future.

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’.
