Praise for Blackout:

‘In many years of writing book reviews, I have only on half a dozen occasions given a novel 5 Stars. To give 5 stars, I have always believed the book should be unbeatable in its subject. Blackout is one of these’

‘Seriously good thriller’

‘Yet again Tom Barber has written a brilliant thriller centered around Sam Archer; this is the third in the series that I’ve read & I think the best so far’

‘Just brilliant, and to find a new thriller writer that I love is very exciting’

‘Having now discovered Tom Barber I am really hooked on his Sam Archer novels. They are the best books I have read for a long time’

‘This makes the third book in the Sam Archer series that I’ve now read and
the third is as brilliant as the first. Great twists and turns, unexpected
outcomes to situations and generally an amazing novel’

Young counter-terrorist cop Sam Archer arrives for work at the Armed Response Unit expecting a quiet day.

But unbeknownst to him, a storm is coming.

Three men have already been killed that morning. One committed suicide by the River Thames. Another was strangled in his car in Washington D.C. And the third was shot in the face in his high-rise New York apartment as he slept. The deaths seem random, thousands of miles apart. But they are all connected. By a shocking event fifteen years ago.

And this is only the beginning.

Archer, Chalky and the rest of the Unit suddenly find themselves plunged into a ferocious and violent confrontation, fighting for their lives. The enemy they are up against are brutal, highly trained, well-armed and anonymous. No one knows where they have come from. No one seems to know who they are.

But they have a vendetta. They will never forgive or forget, or show mercy.

And for some reason, they’re hell-bent on killing ten specific people before the end of the day.

As the Unit tries to find out who these killers are and locate the remaining targets so they can protect them, it becomes a race against time to see who can get there first. As the counter-terrorist unit and the vengeful enemy come up against each other all over the city, Archer and the team soon realise two things.

This enemy is more proficient and deadly than any they’ve ever encountered.

And one of their own ARU men is on the extermination list.

Focus on the first thing, his fencing master’s voice rose from within his memory.

A Diamond in the Rough (The Elements Book 1)

cover

“From this day on, let everything be fiction.”

With these words, an aspiring scientist is swept away onto the Periodic Table. In a fantasy land where chemicals are people, she finds her place as the element Carbon. Settling down as a circus magician, she enlightens the crowd with traffic lights and vanishing valentines. She encounters a queer cast of characters and Litmus, a pH indicating chameleon. Yet all is not well in the kingdom of chemicals; Oxygen, the electron thief, burns and corrodes any metal he pleases. Following the mysterious disappearance of Gold, Carbon sets upon a quest to capture the thief. Upon encountering two strangers and a band of fire-eating devils, she finds herself caught up in a contract with the thief. In return for his life, she agrees to accompany him on the search for the alchemist. Arriving at a castle of caves, they travel through a cloud chamber, a forest of rust monsters, a haunted inn, a labyrinth, and a rainbow lake. In the end, the worst lie reveals an incredible amount of truth.

At the far west, the Alkali Desert is home to the most reactive of metals. In a land where water is a taboo, a draconian potion, tensions are high at the news of a rising storm. Eastward, the Halogens prepare for battle against a band of islanders, metals, and nonmetals. Between a collection of spellbinding puzzles and color-changing reactions, Carbon comes to question everything she had known. Tangled up in the middle of a war, she and her friends must devise chemical schemes to stop the world from falling apart.

Want to impress your friends with some scientific knowledge? A flip of the page is all it will take to acquire the greatest insight, delivered in surprisingly simple language. The story will walk readers of any age through the enchanting world of chemical reactions. Bringing personification to the highest degree, the saga casts a new light upon drab materials of the lab shelf. From the ground to stars, galaxies, and universes, the novel will carry those daring enough up into different dimensions. With a unique twist of the plot, readers will encounter a lifetime’s worth riddles yet to be solved. Through an adventure rife with humor, action, and a bit of dark mystery, the series brings light to a crisscross of genres. This crazy-quilt sequence of events will captivate fans of crime and detective novels. Sprinkled with jokes, quips, and bonds, it offers a pleasant escapade into a romantic comedy. The series is a laboratory by itself, proving possible a bizarre, splendid, unlikely fusion between fiction and nonfiction. Those with a taste for the unusual will be fascinated by this tale of dragons and knights presented at the molecular level.

A spectacular tale of friendship and courage, ‘A Diamond in the Rough’ is peppered with art, poetry, and enigmas. ‘The Elements’ introduces readers to a new era of magic – magic opposed to the fairytales saying, the witch mixed the herbs, the fairies happened to make a mistake. The stirring stick being a little wand of its own, characters come up with bombs worth Zeus’s thunderbolt and poisonous drinks. Bringing life to the rigid realm of numbers, the plotline revolves around struggles for power and romance, as a striking parallel to humanity. It brings attention to a realm of lucid dreams, geometry, and artificial intelligence. Keep your eyes open for the next string of books – The Prince of Magnets, A Strange Cliffside Factory, A Chiral Universe, Something Denser than Love, and Schrodinger’s Lost Cat.
