Présentation de l'éditeur

Praise for Nine Lives:

‘A fantastic book…gripping stuff all the way’

‘Gripping plot, well written and very entertaining’

‘I’ve read a lot of books in the past two years since I owned a Kindle, but this was the most compulsive reading I have come across’

‘I literally could not put this story down. Action from Page 1 and carries on continually throughout the book’

‘Would make an excellent action film’

‘The action was non-stop from beginning to end and in some scenes I think my heart was pounding as much as the characters'

‘This is a fantastic book, spent 3 nights reading it as I could not put it down, gripping stuff all the way’

It’s New Year’s Eve. A major terrorist cell is planning a series of attacks across London over the next forty-eight hours. The government has surveillance on the group, a man undercover, and prepare to move in, to take out the terrorists before they can strike. But they lose contact with their inside man. And the cell vanishes into thin air, dispersing into the streets, armed and intent on completing their assault on London. The best Counter-Terrorist teams in the country are told to take them down before it's too late.

Nine terrorists.

Nine lives.

The Armed Response Unit is one of these teams. Efficient and ruthless, the task force is ordered to locate the leader of the cell. As they hunt him down, they begin to realise that this is far bigger than any of them could ever have imagined. Bombings, rocket attacks, betrayal and a series of unexpected and shocking twists leave the ARU fighting to stay alive.

There's Archer, the youngest member of the team, keen to prove himself and justify his spot on the task force. His best friend, Chalky, who is forced to fight both the terrorists and his own demons. Porter, Deakins and Fox, tough and experienced men who’ve never dealt with anything of this magnitude. And Mac, their sergeant, who must make the quickest of decisions and lead his men against the invisible enemy.

As events unfold, other people are drawn into the danger. The Prime Minister, desperately trying to find a solution and protect the capital. A mysterious female Mossad agent, who appears out of nowhere and joins the fight against the cell. Two Special Agents from the DEA, one of whom was a member of the SEAL team that stormed Osama Bin Laden’s compound and who for some reason is struggling with the memory. And the vicious, powerful leader of a Middle Eastern drug cartel, who operates in the shadows and is somehow connected to the terrorists.

With crowds all over London celebrating the New Year, and with nine terrorists somewhere amongst them, the Armed Response Unit is faced with the most dangerous night of their lives. As the savage, shocking plans of the enemy are fully revealed, the ARU officers are faced with the ultimate question.
How many times can a man cheat Death before Death evens the score?

I really enjoyed reading this book from Tom Barber. It had plenty of action, likable heroes and detestable villains. There were some events that were pretty far-fetched but saying that about a book in this genre is like saying that a handful of trail-mix has some nuts. Duh, right? There were a few times when something was just a little too coincidental or when after someone did something I wondered "why didn't they just do X" but it never really kept me from enjoying the story. The action was fast-paced but never got overwhelming. I was kept interested and entertained and that is all that I really ask from books like this.

Like most other self-published books this one has some grammatical issues. Thankfully, they were kept to a minimum here though and were never too much of a distraction. One unusual thing that I noticed was a odd tense thing that the author did with the verbs "sat" and "stood". For example, "A fat man in a beige suit was stood the other side of him." I assume it has something to do with his Australian/English upbringing but I have never encountered it before.

Nine Lives was a fast and fun read and I finished it in just a few sessions. I recommend it for fans of action-based police stories. I borrowed this book from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library. I already own his next two books in the Sam Archer series and I am looking forward to reading them.

Hey, one thing though, only "Reacher can say nothing" and make it work from now on. ;)

This is the first story in the Sam Archer series. We are introduced to the young blonde policeman as he gets his first major action in the Armed Response Unit. A terrorist is trying to impress his bigwig drug cartel leading uncle by sending 8 suicide bombers into London on New Year's Eve.

I found this to be an exciting roller coaster ride. The tension and chase was always ramped up with the discovery of clues for the next terrorist to apprehend. I think this is a great start to a series of books. The author says he wants his stories to be like action packed films and he does a good job of it here.

If I was a criminal mastermind, I'd time everything to go off at once. But then it would be a short book. Bang. The End

Terrorist attacks in London is one heck of a way to ring in the New Year! True to the countdown theme that pervades the pages of this book, the tension steadily builds as the clock ticks down to midnight. Despite being a trifle hackneyed in characterizations, Nine Lives is an action-filled, classic style "heroic good guys vs. cold-hearted bad guys" book that reads as if watching it on film. It is quick and vivid and seamlessly flows from scene to scene as Barber latches on and never lets his reader go.

When UK and US government agencies band together in a joint venture to stop a series of terrorist attacks upon the citizens of London, the continuous play of action and suspense is quite realistic and well presented, and I, for one, found the ending to be particularly satisfying. This book is most entertaining and I happily anticipate reading more of the Sam Archer series.

Par Leapin' Literary Lurkers - Publié sur

This could probably be subtitled a primer on terror tactics, and quite frankly had a bit more gore and violence than is my cup of chai. That doesn't prevent me from recognizing the author's ability to write a good action-packed book with well-described characters (and a couple who are too despicable for words).

There is minor allusion to political fallout and some soul-searching regarding the genesis of home-grown terrorism; motivation however was merely described, and I never felt deeply about the rationale the author presented.

The reader receives quite a tutorial on weapons, explosives and all manner of nasty scenarios. As is true in many movies of this genre, some of the close calls and coincidences defied belief.

Aside from the odd tenses which to which another alluded --- my addition would be "he had arose" where Americans would say "had arisen" or simply "he arose"---I only noted two typos: "increment weather" and "it would have been a synch" for cinch.

I have downloaded a couple more in the series and will see if the excess of violence continues.

Loved the plot - all the characters - a nonstop action read - perfect in every way. I've bought all his books now and am on The Getaway now. Certainly the most impressive first novel I've every read. I look forward to all his future writing accomplishments. - Pam Stratton
