Praise for the Sam Archer thriller series: ‘This has been one of the all-time favourites. Right there with Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan series and Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp’ ‘I read all of the books in the Sam Archer series and I cannot say enough good things about each one…I’ve never read a series where each book was just as good as the next’ ‘This is an incredible series...the action is non-stop from beginning to end’ ‘I can't speak highly enough of this author and the 6 books in the Sam Archer series. Riveting reading, great plots always with a twist, and likeable heroes' 'The best series I've ever read' 'Looking forward to reading more from this truly talented writer' When is violence necessary? A Federal manhunt is underway across the United States. A sniper has killed three people in three different cities during the last seventy two hours and he’s gone to ground somewhere in Washington D.C. No-one can find him, and riots have erupted on the streets in response to the shootings. The lead suspect is a police officer. As the search for the cop intensifies, the violence engulfing the U.S capital means nowhere and no-one is safe, especially the police, who are being targeted by rioters and gangs are making the most of the opportunity and taking over the streets. With the killer on the loose, individuals are taking the law into their own hands. A fourteen year old boy moves through the riot zone, determined to find the killer. A reporter tries to make her way into the city despite the rioting, wanting to get to the suspect before anyone else. And NYPD Detective Sam Archer arrives in the city visiting family. Or so it would appear. In the eighth instalment of the Sam Archer thriller series, the young NYPD cop finds himself drawn into a situation far beyond his control, in a city being torn apart by rioting and violence. Forced to fight or die and to protect others in danger on the streets, his focus is reduced to the absolute, most basic human instinct: survive. And as long as Archer has breath in his lungs, he can still fight back. **About the Author Born in Sydney, Australia and raised in England and Brunei, Tom Barber has always had a passion for writing and story-telling.
