Book Description

Apocalyptic thriller set in Scotland


Professor David Caruthers-Bryce thought he was very clever. He was; just not clever enough. His top secret experiment has gone horribly wrong and now everyone will pay a heavy price.
A virus, like nothing that has gone before, begins to spread unchecked. As society implodes and people refuse to die a normal death, the fates of a small boy, a young woman, a soldier and the very country that they live in will hang in the balance.
Kill or cure? Hope or despair? Escape or succumb? The problem is…who can they turn to when there’s no-one left to trust?
A whole new evil has been unleashed on the world and it might just be too late to put the lid back on this particular box…
Indie Book of the Month August 2012: Fantastic book! I absolutely love Carroll's writing style. Carroll is a true talent at writing intelligent and witty material.
RA Stephenson author of “Collapse (New America #1)”

More About the Author

Peter is a Scottish person who's nearer fifty than forty now and has no idea how that happened! He's been married for a long time and has one daughter. When finances and time permit, he travels the world in search of birds and other wildlife and is a committed conservationist. As a self-taught bassist, saying he's a musician may be stretching it, but he has a go now and again.

Literary influences include Christopher Brookmyre, Stephen King and Irvine Welsh, so expect bad language, violence, black humour and significantly fewer adverbs than most...oh...

So far, he has six novels published.

5.0 out of 5 stars May I have some more please :) 6 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book I have read by Peter Carrol although I have his other book which is just begging to be read. It was took a little while for me to get into this but once I was, there was no stopping me, I was utterly hooked. Cursing any and every distraction that arose to pull me from it's pages. The characters are realistic, the story gripping and intriguing, it leaves you guessing page after page and I just, well, loved it quite frankly. It also makes you wonder what if in a really creepy way. (I think it might be time to get a passport, just to be safe lol) seriously though, this was an amazing read and I really loved it. Well worth picking up a copy and adding it to your to read lists. I cannot recommend it highly enough and am very much looking forward to reading a lot more by this author in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking 29 Mar. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The authors second book, and just as gritty and engaging as his first! It's the story of an epidemic spreading through the population, and the stories of the different people who come into contact with it. Very gripping from the start, and lots of very different individual perspectives throughout the book, made it a thoroughly enjoyable read...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Different follow-up to 'In Many Ways' 19 April 2012
By Gordon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having very much enjoyed 'In Many Ways' I went straight into 'Pandora's Pitbull'.
The two books are very different, the former being a gritty Glasgow based thriller and the latter a fantasy/horror of more national dimensions along the way posing a few important, unspoken and not unfeasible 'could this happen' and 'what if' questions.
I preferred the first novel but also enjoyed the second, which appears to leave a door open for a possible sequel....what happened next; does the UK return to 'normal' and how; what legacy does the 'disaster' leave.
I am left to wonder which way the author will go with a third novel - back towards In Many Ways or along the Pandora's Pitbull path or take yet another new route?
Whatever the choice, I will be reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pandora's Pitbull 28 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
2nd of hopefully many books from Peter Carroll.
A well told tale set in Bonnie Scotland.
Unexpected twists keep your interest and the pace is good.
Highly recommend this - especially at these prices !
I'm looking forward to the next one - either a sequel to this or anything that Peter's creativity can conjur up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy fun 5 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good read if you just want to lose yourself in a bit of fantasy horror. I must say that I enjoyed the first book "In Many Ways" more than this one, but I still found myself eager to get home, open my kindle and read "Pandora's Pitbulll" at every opportunity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. A good read. 30 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not sorry I downloaded Peter Carroll's 'Pandora Pitbull'. I've not read him before, but will read him from now on.

'Pandora's Pitbull' is set in Scotland. Not many books are set in Scotland, so that this one is, is that little extra that makes me like the book.

Right from the opening page the book gripped me. I've read reviewers here claim that they had found the novel difficult to get into. It was not so for me. At the end of Page 1 I wanted to read Page 2 and so it went until the end.

I'm not going to give away the plot, but I will say that the book is a fantasy horror: a virus is created in a laboratory which turns people into zombies. Can happen.

Peter Carroll does not only invent a good story, he also writes well.

Towards the end of the book, he writes: 'The tears were gently rolling down his cheeks now; an involuntary tributary running into his river of desperation ...'

That's good writing, and the book's full of such passages.

I suspect that Peter Carroll has a sequel up his sleeve and I know that I, for one, will want to read it, and will read it.

I congratulate him on having written such a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Leaves you wanting more. 8 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I initially came across this novel when an ad popped up in my Facebook timeline. I read the brief synopsis of the book and immediately found it interesting so I bought it for my Kindle right there and then.

The book is very thought provoking and it reminded me in a lot of ways, by the pacing of the book, of the 28 Days/Weeks Later films, albeit this time round, with actual flesh eating zombies with a twist as to the "patient zero" of the outbreak. What is actually different is the main bulk of the book is set in Scotland (the source of the viral outbreak) and not the whole of the UK is affected. A few memorable landmarks were also mentioned (including my hometown, which made me smile) I liked all three main characters and thought their story was fleshed out very well throughout the course of the story. It was interesting that the mass panic was felt everywhere, especially down south in England where the government struggle to contain the outbreak and stop it spreading.

As I said before a very thought provoking book as, although fictitious, it does make you think "what if?"

Overall an excellent book. I really do hope Peter plans a sequel at some point down the road.
