'EXPLODES WITH A LOUD AND SATISFYING ROAR' New York Times 'IT GRABBED ME AND KEPT ME GOING' Len Deighton 'A FIRST-RATE, HIGH-POWERED THRILLER' Desmond Bagley 'ONE OF THE WORLD'S BEST THRILLER WRITERS' Irish Independent ***** Mining engineer Jim Keogh is enjoying a relaxing break in Cape Town when he witnesses a sadistic policemen's violent attempt to arrest a black man. Appalled by the policeman's brutality, Keogh steps in and helps the man escape. But unknown to Keogh, the man he has helped is Shack Twala, a high-profile black rights activist recently escaped from Robben Island. With the policeman badly injured, Keogh and Twala are now both wanted men, and the regime's most lethal operatives are sent after them. As the fugitives race 900 miles to cross the border to safety, they are drawn into a conspiracy much bigger and deadlier than they realize... THE WILBY CONSPIRACY is a thrilling mix of high adventure, political conspiracy and pursuit set in Apartheid South Africa which fans of Ken Follett, Frederick Forsyth and Wilbur Smith will love - and which was made into a successful Hollywood movie starring Michael Caine, Sidney Poitier and Rutger Hauer. PRAISE FOR PETER DRISCOLL AND THE WILBY CONSPIRACY: 'Even trickier and more polished than The Odessa File' New York Times 'The best chase story I have read for a long time' Eric Ambler 'A real winner... You'll be entertained and intrigued every step of the way until the totally unexpected finale' Publishers Weekly 'No doubt about it at all, this is a real thriller writer who knows how to write with three-dimensional physical force... an all-action spellbinder' The Scotsman 'Welcome to a new thriller master, a writer who knows how to build up tension and keep a story moving at top speed' John Braine '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' New York Magazine 'Driscoll is a good writer and... he has us at his mercy all the way' The New Yorker 'A Slam-bang winner!' Saturday Review
