“An exciting conspiracy thriller charged with intrigue and action”

-Susan Sewell

Everything’s under CTRL. 

A Storm gathers. The lines between fiction and reality blur.

Small-time blogger Jane Harlow doesn’t want to believe. She lives in a world of hard facts, but when a mysterious stranger arrives alleging shocking secrets about her father’s murder, Jane’s life quickly unravels. She is in danger. Friends and family are indistinguishable from agents of a shadowy Cabal. 

She must choose–believe or die. 

Businessman John McCarthy wants the simple life–fishing in the tropics. But no matter how far he runs, he can’t escape the controversy over the company he founded. Halfway around the world, a disaster unites him with a young woman who could open his eyes to the truth, or she might be the death of him. 

The harrowing trail of clues left by a killer leads Jane on a desperate chase to the ends of the Earth–and to the part of her past she can’t escape. The FBI and one determined detective pursue her every step of the way. Each revelation is more unnerving than the last. Each one challenges the reality they think they see. Everyone is a threat now.

The world is coming apart. To survive, Jane must reckon with the greatest lie in human history. 

Everything she thought she knew was wrong. Where one goes, they all go. 

The Sunless Sea will reveal the truth.

“An engaging story with a complex plot that kept me guessing until the very end…The plot’s pace and intensity build as the story progresses, snowballing to a smashing finale.”

“A timely edge-of-your-seat terrorism thriller that plays on every parent’s worst fears. This cinematic thriller is destined for TV.” –Best Thrillers

Erik Petersson works with the High-Risk Traveler Task Force, an organization that prevents radicalized individuals from joining extremist groups. Disciplined and dedicated, Erik’s carefully controlled world is upended when his daughter, Arielle, leaves university to join the Islamic Caliphate, a terrorist regime in Syria. Erik rallies a desperate effort to stop her, but when he fails, he resolves to bring Arielle back, whatever the cost.

Driven by a secret she can’t outrun, Arielle’s dream of a more purposeful life is confronted with the brutality of life in the Caliphate. When she attracts the attention of Abu Noor al Kanadi, a terrorist leader bent on punishing America for its actions in the Middle East, Arielle must choose whether to sacrifice her dreams to survive or risk a frantic bid to escape. Torn between rival agendas, father and daughter must choose between family or country, love or fear.

When planning revenge, the first step is to dig two graves.

From the book:
He didn’t even notice Bill Prince step up behind him until he felt the tap on his shoulder. As he turned, he didn’t see the fist of the former special operator, now Special Forces Instructor until it had almost made contact with the side of his face. Everything went dark for a moment.
When he regained consciousness, he was lying face down on the ground being cuffed.
“Whoever you are, you are making a mistake and you are about to be in big trouble. I suggest you let me go,” Agent Sky shouted.
“Not a chance, Serpico. You have a lot of questions to answer.”
“You’ll find my shield and ID in my back-left pocket. You need to let me up now.”
Bill dug in the pocket and pulled out his ID case.
“Agent Antonio Sky of the NEA. Hmm. Well, Sky, we have a problem. More specifically, YOU have a problem.”
Bill Prince hauled the man roughly to his feet. His wrists were still cuffed behind him.
“Before you get any ideas, Agent Antonio Sky of the NEA, I need you to look down at your chest. See the dot?”
He saw the laser dot painted on his chest.
“About three hundred yards from here is a very angry man with that laser. It is attached to his rather beautiful Barrett M82 rifle. About two inches below that laser is a fifty caliber BMG round. You need to understand that it will go through your vest as easily as it would a t-shirt.
“You also need to understand that the same government you work for trained him with the motto, ‘one shot, one kill.’ And for him, three hundred yards is close range. That is the long way of telling you not to be a hero.”

The exciting conclusion to Planning Vengeance – Broken Path Book 1. Paul’s path leads him further and further into the darkness. Will he be able to drag Jack and Amy along with him to his dark place, or will their friends and family be able to save them?
Follow along on the roller-coaster ride. There is more action, high-speed driving, guns, cars and even a little more romance.

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.

Alexandra Forever 2291, Book One, The Strange Matter of the Red Dwarf

Alexandra Forever 2291, Book One, The Strange Matter of the Red Dwarf - ASIN B08DM6XB5S

This sci fi adventure opens on the crest of a gravity tsunami, when a red dwarf star system punches through the fabric of space-time and barrels toward the Milky Way Galaxy. The Early Warning Centre can only watch helplessly as colonized space braces for impact. 

Questions arise. Is it merely a star system? Or, is something else altogether?

The dire situation takes an unforeseen twist in this science fantasy when an SOS transmission from a long-lost experimental starship, The Invictus, is traced to the sole planet orbiting the red dwarf.  

Alexandra, Post Office Marshal and living goddess, is in an action-packed race against time when she is conscripted to retrieve either the Invictus itself or, failing that, it’s top-secret data, before the ship is lost to imminent galactic collision, or worse, falls into the wrong hands.

When a widespread series of explosions brings society crashing down around them, James and Charlotte are initially left with only one another as they struggle to survive. 

As the modern world collapses, people driven by starvation and panic, as well as those with evil intentions, prove to be more of a threat than the explosions themselves.

Along the way they stumble upon survivors waiting to be saved.

This group of survivors is woefully unprepared for what life becomes after the Fall, where the simplest mistake can mean mortal danger. In this new reality, they must contend with both the perils of the natural world and the threat of dangerous men who use the collapse of society to prey on those weaker than themselves. Sanity and morality are under constant threat as this group struggles to survive, each of them facing life-changing physical and emotional battles. 

Will this group of strangers, bonded by tragedy, have what it takes to survive a world that has fallen around them?

Ribbons of Death (Book 1)

Three months after surviving a deadly riot in Cairo, Timothy Carter is compelled to track down Stella Hunter, a disgraced academic whose book could be the key to deciphering whether the legend of the Peacetaker is more than a dusty myth.

The Harmony Scroll (Book 2)

Almost a year to date from the time Carter braved a horrible blizzard just to be able to knock on Stella Hunter’s door, the two are following a trail again—this time searching for a mysterious scroll that a few unreliable historians documented in the course of time.

There the journey begins when Carter sees an old Oriental couple pray, then leave the worship decades younger than when they walked in minutes before. Their story surrounds a bizarre and poorly chiseled granite statue delivered to the church. But is it just an ugly statue?
