The Savages (The Staunton and Wyndsor Series, #4) ebook: EPUB

The Savages (A Murder Thriller)

'This is a taut, handsome job, beautifully written, full of real characters and acute observations.'

The New York Times

When Colonel Bannister-Coates, an experienced Intelligence officer, fails to return to his Oxfordshire village home and his immaculate clothes are discovered dressing a scarecrow in a roadside field, there is a flurry of anxious activity in Whitehall.

Detective Superintendent Staunton and his urbane Detective Inspector, Leo Wyndsor, are under pressure to discover if this is defection or assassination, or if there is some other, less obvious, answer.

Despite local obstruction and sparse, enigmatic clues, and without the benefit of the more sophisticated aids to detection that are available now, a pattern gradually emerges, leading the detectives to a climax as intriguing and hazardous as any found in the earlier highly praised Staunton and Wyndsor novels.

The Savages is the fourth in a series of classic police procedural murder mysteries set in the 1970s.

These books were previously published worldwide, by major publishing houses, in hard and paperback editions and are now available as eBooks.

The Hunters is the first in The Staunton and Wyndsor Series which introduced the two memorable detectives, followed by The Liars and The Enthusiast. They are set in various locations in Britain.

Each novel is a stand-alone story, with the same two detectives as the major protagonists.

Press comments on the other Staunton and Wyndsor books

'Lies, gossip, and jealousy fail to deter two of Scotland Yard's finest in this entertaining mystery with an extra twist or two... or three.'

Pittsburgh Press

'Exceptionally well told, with satisfying outcome.'

Columbus Sunday Dispatch

'Peter Hill does a fine job with character, plot, atmosphere and suspense.'

Publishers Weekly

'… a pair of attractive investigators—the young and aristocratic Leo Wyndsor and the slow-moving but smart veteran Bob Staunton…'

New York Times

'To follow… the brilliantly inspired tracking of Hill's two detectives is a joy, apart from the brain teasing pleasure of accepting the author's challenge to identify the murderer.'

London Evening News

'Bizarre murder and a full, meaty, thoroughly absorbing account of the investigation with sex spicily sandwiched in.'

The Times

 'A tremendous piece of fast-moving fiction. Not one word wasted, the story starts and ends with a bang.'

Coventry Evening Telegraph

Peter Hill has had a successful career working extensively in television for renowned British drama series such as 'Callan', 'The Sweeney', 'Z Cars', 'Public Eye', 'The Bill', 'Special Branch', and 'New Scotland Yard'. He has been a scriptwriter, editor and producer both in the UK and New Zealand, where he now lives.

He has recently returned to novel writing, but in a different genre, and 'Evolution's Path' is a new trilogy of near and far-future novels, which depict a disturbingly realistic vision of the future.

Killing Tomorrow, the first, The Ladies' Game, the second and the third, Procreation, are now all available as eBooks and in print editions.
