Présentation de l'éditeur

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’

‘Had me on the edge of my seat and more than once I missed my station on the way in to work’

‘I couldn’t put this down…totally captivating right to the end!’

‘Recommend all of the Sam Archer books as being first rate detective stories’

‘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.

Biographie de l'auteur

Born in Sydney, Australia and raised in England and Brunei, Tom Barber has always had a passion for writing and story-telling. It took him to Nottingham University, England, where he graduated in 2009 with a 2:1 BA Hons in English Studies. Post-graduation, Tom moved to New York City and completed the 2 Year Meisner Acting training programme at The William Esper Studio, furthering his love of acting and screen-writing. Upon his return to the UK in late 2011, Tom set to work on his debut novel, Nine Lives, which has since become a five-star rated Amazon UK Kindle hit. The following books in the series, The Getaway, Blackout, Silent Night, One Way and Return Fire have been equally successful, garnering five-star reviews in the US and the UK. In his mid-twenties, Tom spends most of his time back and forth between the US and the UK. He loves movies and good thrillers and hates coffee and bad weather.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I liked it. 19 mai 2013

The author needs to learn more about firearms though if he's going to write about them. Glocks don't have safeties, the Russian Dragonov was never made in 7.62x39 and he gives the .308 more range than it's really capable of (1000 meters is too far for it).

The work was a little bit repetitive in a couple of spots.

I did like the work, and will be getting more of his writing to read as the small issues above are things that are easy to correct.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good story, but.... 16 février 2013

Here's the reason I didn't give it a 4 star.
I loved the story line, but the flow was so hampered by tedious details that really not contributed anything to the story.
Example 1 (not verbatim):
He got his key out of his pocket, slid the key in the keyhole, turned the key and opened the door, then walked inside.
2. He picked up the remote control and pressed the 'on' button to turn the TV on.
Really - these tedious details are going on through the whole book.
Another thing was the long boring details about just about every weapon that was used in the story.
If you're military or law enforcement, you probably know these things anyway. And if you're not - who cares?
A careful editor might have caught these things - and it would have greatly improved the overall flow of the book.
All in all - I did enjoy the story.

Crafted in a way it had me hooked from the beginning. Violence was involved because of the nature of the story but in a sensitive manner which not reduce it from a five star rating. I have read the previous two stories of Mr. Archer and I'll go for the remaining as soon as I catch my breath. Very well done.

Totally awesome writing - love the characters and edge of my seat stories. Best new author and best stories I've seen in a long time. No let down in the thrills and great story lines. Ready to start Silent Night now. My new favorite author and just can't say enough good things. Keep writing Tom Barber 'cause I'll keep reading for sure. Pam Stratton

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great page turner, nail-biter 14 mai 2013

Barber did it again. I read this book over several breaks, picking it up and putting it down often, despite not wanting to. The action scenes are well-written, and as the suspense built more and more, I spent more time biting my nails, rooting for our heroes. The book's shorter, but that's the way most thrillers are. It isn't needlessly verbose, nor pretentious. It's a page-turner plain and simple.

For three bucks, you can't go wrong.

If you loved Tom Clancy's thrillers, you'll love this: it's a lean-mean thriller machine, cut to the bare essentials. With big explosions, and with a world in danger, it's up to-
