A Kill in the Morning – Paperback Launch Day!
Exciting news – my début novel A Kill in the Morning is out in paperback today!
This morning, I found it nicely displayed in my local book shop:
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!
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…
