The Coup by Simon Guerrier
London, the near future. UNIT is finished. The UK division of the UNIT prepares to cede its authority to a new organisation… But who is attempting to sabotage the hand-over?
Time Heals by Iain McLaughlin and Claire Bartlett
The UK branch of UNIT is under threat. The Government wants its own military investigative organisation, one under its sole control. The public want answers to the strange things that have been happening recently.
When the division’s commanding officer goes missing whilst transporting a dangerous cargo, Colonel Emily Chaudhry, UNIT’s political officer, is thrown in at the deep end. Things are not helped when a series of accidents show a bizarre pattern.
The Brigadier, meanwhile, is trying to enjoy his retirement but it seems it is time again for him to come to the rescue.
Snake Head by Jonathan Clements
A mobile phone call to the emergency services, a body found on Government land and an ancient burial site unearthed at an archaeological dig all point toward an odd mystery by the coast…
UNIT’s new commander, Colonel Robert Dalton, and its political officer, Colonel Emily Chaudhry, investigate strange goings-on in Southend. What is out there on the beach? What happened to the recently found savaged body? And what of the man who’s just been smuggled into the country?
Is this just a simple case for the local police or, as Chaudhry suspects, is there more to it than meets the eye…?

‘…We’re receiving reports that a bomb has exploded in Central London…’
The Wasting by Iain McLaughlin and Claire Bartlett
Under attack from all sides, UNIT in Britain is in disarray. It faces a stark choice – to close its doors and concede defeat, or to fight back, whatever the cost… and the injured Colonel Emily Chaudhry knows UNIT has never backed down from a battle…
If UNIT is to fight back, it’s going to need the services of its missing commander, Colonel Brimmicombe-Wood, and the experience of the Brigadier, who can never refuse when duty calls…
