Christopher Hodder-Williams – Panic  O’Clock (New English Library, 1973)

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. Then one day a cryptic, desperately urgent telephone call from her husband breaks the tenuous bubble of normality and the panic has begun…
Like lemmings the victims hurtle to their deaths; the situation is one which today belongs to science fiction, but a madness, a topple into darkness could bring a situation of panic such as this into reality tomorrow.

Christopher Hodder Williams is an accomplished writer who cleverly blends fact and fantasy into a book which is compulsively readable-and very frightening.
