Inhaltsangabe zu "Panic O'Clock"
‘One of those writers on whom critics have already lavished almost every word of praise possible’ BBC RADIO 2
Diana Keeling is a woman who faces the world with practised equanimity, acting out the role of wife and mother on her neat estate to perfection.
One day a cryptic, urgent telephone call from her scientist husband breaks the bubble of normality.
Panic has begun…
Victims of a new drug Estofort are doing the unthinkable. They are hurtling to their deaths like lemmings.
It is PANIC O’CLOCK. What follows is a complex and perplexing science fiction mystery, delivered by renowned author Christopher Hodder-Williams.
Praise for Christopher Hodder-Williams:
‘Panic O’Clock secures for its author a comfortable place among the best catastrophe writers — Verne, Wyndham and Wells.’ – Times Literary Supplement
‘Well told and thrilling and — what is rare in tales of this kind — the end is entirely satisfactory.’ – Kingsley Amis, Daily Mail
'Both humanly and scientifically plausible. Read and be scared’ The Sun
‘Horrible plausibility.’ – Punch
‘Mr. Hodder-Williams handles this way-out material most expertly’ Glasgow Herald
‘Great fun’ The Daily Telegraph
‘Millions of us, may some day have reason to thank Christopher Hodder-Williams for the vividness of his imagination (or the clarity of his vision).’ – She Magazine
Christopher Hodder-Williams was an English writer, mainly of science fiction, but he wrote novels about aviation and espionage as well. Before his career in writing, Hodder-Williams joined the army in 1944, and served in the Middle East and lived in Kenya and New York, later settling in the UK. Many of his books are early examples of what would later be called techno-thrillers. He also worked as a composer and lyricist, and wrote numerous plays for television.
