About Hylton Smith

Born in the Northeast of England, I graduated from Newcastle University in Chemistry. My entire career has been in the manufacturing industry, first in research, then general management. After a number of years as the chief executive of a UK division of an American multinational corporation, I set up my own company, and in less than five years I was able to retire and turn to a boyhood yearning to write science fiction stories. This has gradually expanded to other genres such as alternate history and crime fiction.

Perhaps not the most literary of gems but an intriguing mystery or three in one long tale. Following the demolition of an old factory a body from c.1940s slips from under a deluge of mud. Then follows the adventures of two sets of Brit officials—one which wishes to untangle the mystery, and one which attempts to cover it all back up.
