Special Branch:In At The Kill

Based on the renowned British television series of the 1970s this is the story of a dangerous conflict of interests between the police and the intelligence services.

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.

Although based on the characters in the TV series this book is a stand-alone novel and as such can be enjoyed in its own right without prior knowledge of the TV stories.

If you enjoy a good detective story, this is for you.

John Eyers is a pen name of Peter Hill who is the author of the successful Staunton and Wyndsor series, and the Commander Allan Dice books.
