One of the very best thrillers of the last ten years. Second novel by Stevens, published by Coronet in 1987, now reissued and still stunningly relevant to the Middle East conflict.
The lives of three families converge: a Jewish family finally allowed out of Russia after years of persecution; a Palestinian family displaced by the Israelis from their ancestral home in Bethlehem; an English family from Hereford, home of the SAS: hostage, highjacker, rescuer – but who is really the villain, who is really the victim? A super novel of international intrigue and heartbreaking suspense.

‘Stevens has written a cracking thriller with all the pace and tension and authenticity of The Day of the Jackal, but he has also written a book which confronts the reader with the appalling moral dilemmas that still pervade the processes of prosecuting for peace in
‘This is original, compelling and a serious page-turner’
‘A cracking page-turner’
A young Palestinian born to live in a holy land, almost certainly to die in an act of violence.
An Israeli family, finally allowed to put a lifetime of persecution in Russia behind them, flying to a future full of hope.
An SAS officer, his years of training counting down to minutes of heartstopping action.
Destiny will bring them together in the terrifying drama of a hijack that will mesmerise the world.
Unbearable tension, powerful emotion, chillingly authentic detail make 'Peace on Earth' one of the most stunningly brilliant novels of recent times.
"Definitely goes in the Forsyth class. The book has real style. Not often that a thriller touches on, matters of importance as he has done and so cogently"
