A Kill in the Morning Paperback

My Journey

I’ve been writing seriously for ten years and working on  A Kill in the Morning  for five years. In 2013, I was  shortlisted for the Terry Pratchett Prize  and that lead to A Kill in the Morning being  published by Transworld.  It first came out in June 2014 in a bigger, more expensive edition. Now it’s available in mass-market paperback – exactly the same text, just a lot cheaper.

What’s it about?

Like it says in the advert: it’s equal parts Fatherland , James Bond , Day of the Jackal and Doctor Who!

A Kill in the Morning Paperback

This is the short synopsis:

The year is 1955 and something is very wrong with the world. It’s fourteen years since Churchill died and the Second World War ended. In occupied Europe, Britain fights a cold war against a nuclear-armed Nazi Germany.
In Berlin the Gestapo is on the trail of a beautiful young resistance fighter, and the head of the SS is plotting to dispose of an ailing Adolf Hitler and restart the war against Britain and her empire.  Meanwhile, in a secret bunker hidden deep beneath the German countryside, scientists are experimenting with a force far beyond their understanding.
Into this arena steps a nameless British assassin, on the run from a sinister cabal within his own government, and planning a private war against the Nazis.
Now the fate of the world rests on a single kill in the morning…
