An Autobiography
The Wilby Conspiracy - Peter Driscoll

When first published in 1972, the New York Magazine described The Wilby Conspiracy thus: ‘The headlong action moves from Cape Town to Johannesburg to the bush, in a high-tension game of political intrigue. The plot is gripping and superbly ingenious. Beats Le Carré and the rest at their own game.’ The novel, which opens with an escape from the now infamous Robben Island prison received rave reviews from John Braine (‘Welcome to a new thriller master’), Len Deighton (‘It grabbed me on page one and kept going’) and Eric Ambler (‘The best chase story I have read for a long time’). Written at the time of South Africa’s repressive apartheid regime by a former Rand Daily Mail journalist, it was filmed in 1975, starring Michael Caine and Sidney Poitier.
In Connection With Kilshaw - Peter Driscoll

Northern Ireland in the early 1970s and ‘The Troubles’ are near to escalating into all-out civil war with two fanatical groups going head-to-head: James Kilshaw’s Ulster Vigilantes and Sullivan’s Volunteers, a Marxist breakaway faction of the IRA. When British Intelligence receives an anonymous offer to discredit the Protestant extremist Kilshaw, it sends former army officer Harry Finn into the Belfast underworld to find the proof. Instead he uncovers a ruthless conspiracy involving a shipment of smuggled weapons which, in the hands of either set of terrorists could spark the conflict. Betrayed on all sides with no one he can trust, Finn also discovers that at the heart of the conspiracy is a fall guy – Harry Finn himself. First published in 1974, In Connection With Kilshaw was praised for its ‘ruthlessly imposed suspense’ (The Times) and was favourably compared to the thrillers of Graham Greene and John Le Carré.
