The Fanatics (A Political Hostage Thriller)

'A really good thriller writer…'

The Daily Telegraph

A terrorist unit brings sudden death to London.

They have instructions to assassinate the two leaders of the new radical CDP (Christian Democrat Party).

After gunning down one CDP leader in his Westminster flat, the pair set off to execute the other but the appearance of the police forces the pair to avoid capture by seizing the Reverend Paul Carpenter and his secretary, and barricading themselves into Carpenter's flat.

The tension mounts during the siege as the terrorists, manifestly without scruples, remain oddly calm, while Commander Allan Dice, an aloof, private man with strong principles, who is in charge of the police operation is all too aware of the appalling threat to the hostages' lives and the need to maintain a ruthless pressure of doubt in the terrorists' minds.

And beyond the immediate siege with its vast deployment of police resources there are frenzied repercussions in the corridors of Whitehall and the Kremlin.

The violent and unforeseen climax tests all of Dice's and the hostages' courage and moral strength.

The Fanatics is the first of the Commander Allan Dice books.

The Sunday Times

'Peter Hill has done it again—a fast-moving, action-packed thriller involving the secret service, the police and underworld criminals.'
