Product description


"Superbly researched, scarily plausible, and with a great narrative drive – A Kill in the Morning is a cracking counterfactual, and a terrific debut." (STEPHEN BAXTER)

"I loved A Kill in the Morning. It’s easily up there with Fatherland . . . It’s clever, intelligent, literate, action-filled and utterly compelling. What more could we ask for in any book?" (MANDA SCOTT)

"A real page turner, and an insane read to boot – I mean that in the best possible way. Imagine a Fleming-esque assassin, only on steroids, and pitch him against the Nazis in a Cold War/Star Wars era where WWII ended in 1941, and this is what you get . . . a wonderful combination . . . a rollercoaster ride from beginning to end" (KNIGHT OF THE PEN blog)

"Part Day of the Jackal, part James Bond . . . a wonderful page-turner with a plot that would make a great action movie . . . an action-packed romp that Ian Fleming would be proud of." (SFFWORLD)

"RECIPE for a great debut book: 1) Mix two parts of Brit 1950s war thriller; 2) add a chunk of Indiana Jones and a dollop of Dr Who; 3) thicken the plot with a devil-may-care killer and a demon Nazi and; 4) cook it on a steady-paced heat. A Kill in the Morning should be a bonkers read, but it's served up so well it delivers even more than its cover blurb promises - and that's plenty. Bloody good work, Mr Shimmin." (WEEKEND SPORT)

Book Description

Take the meticulous research of Robert Harris, the spy thrills of Ian Fleming, the classic action of Alistair MacLean and the wild ride of a Tarantino film and you're coming close to A Kill in the Morning . . .
