The world is overrun by an unimaginable horror. The few surviving humans are scattered in tiny outposts across the world, hoping for reprieve - or death. Waiting on the runway of the abandoned Las Vegas airport sits the B-52 bomber Liberty Bell, revving up for its last, desperate mission. On board - six crew members and one 10-kiloton nuclear payload. The target is a secret compound in the middle of the world's most inhospitable desert.
All the crew have to do is drop the bomb and head to safety.
But when the Liberty Bell crashes, the surviving crew are stranded in the most remote corner of Death Valley. They're alone in an alien environment, their only shelter the wreckage of their giant aircraft, with no hope of rescue. And death is creeping towards them from the place they sought to destroy - and may already reside beneath their feet in the burning desert sands.

The fourth book in Adam Baker’s SF-horror series, set in a world in which human bodies are commandeered by an extraterrestrial virus and turned into mindless killing machines, is the most visceral yet. Baker excels at taking a small group of individuals and putting them in pressure-cooker situations where the enemy isn’t just the hordes of alien zombies but the darkness in the hearts of the still living.
In one of the most inhospitable environments known to man, Death Valley, an antiquated B-52 bomber crashes while on a mission to drop a nuclear bomb on a secret US military compound. The crew safely eject, then struggle across the desolate landscape to the only shelter available: the plane wreckage.
With little in the way of supplies and rescue a remote prospect, they must survive burning sun, freezing nights, injury, and the undead, which are more of a threat than ever, having begun to evolve a kind of intelligence. Told in terse, James Ellroy-esque prose, Impact is punchy and propulsive entertainment.

The world has been overrun by a lethal infection, ravaged by a pathogen that leaves its victims locked half-way between life and death. New York, bombed to prevent the spread of the disease, has been reduced to radioactive rubble.
A rescue squad enters the subway tunnels beneath Manhattan, searching for the one man who can create an antidote.
The squad battle floodwaters, lethal radiation and infected, irradiated survivors as they race against the disease that threatens to extinguish the human race.

The third in Baker’s series of viscerally claustrophobic end-of-the-world novels has Manhattan destroyed by a nuclear warhead while, beneath the streets, ragtag survivors struggle to find a cure for an outer-space virus that turns people into raving zombies. The message is uncompromisingly bleak: humans are the greatest monsters.
- Financial Times Books of the Year 2013.

 ...Baker’s great at evoking the claustrophobic atmosphere of the subway tunnels, the characters’ sense of foreboding and peril, of being trapped beneath the radioactive wasteland that the city has become. Later in the novel, after our protagonists have stumbled across diaries, letters, and other scribblings by those who didn’t make it, Baker uses them as a device to fill in the background, and more ‘off-screen’ exposition. It’s brilliantly done, channeling different voices, and we really get into the heads of those who experienced the ravages of the plague, or the nuclear attack to cleanse Manhattan, and the dark loneliness in the tunnels (it’s brilliantly, frighteningly described near the beginning of the story)...Overall, this is a superb example of the genre, and is very highly recommended. It had me on the edge of my seat, and hooked from page one...Great stuff.

Iraq 2005
Seven mercenaries journey deep into the desert in search of Saddam's gold.  They form an unlikely crew of battle-scarred privateers, killers and thieves, veterans of a dozen war zones, each of them anxious to make one last score before their luck runs out. 
They will soon find themselves marooned among ancient ruins, caught in a desperate battle for their lives, confronted by greed, betrayal, and an army that won't stay dead. 

Baker’s debut novel, Outpost, was a splendidly taut and claustrophobic end-of-the-world thriller.  Juggernaut is a prequel of sorts, set five years earlier…with clipped sentences and whipcrack paragraphs he maintains a relentless pace.  Juggernaut is hugely entertaining and as unstoppable as its namesake. 
- The Financial Times 

Great characters, an amazing level of detail, an insane yet wholly believable plot – Juggernaut is an excellent read, full of grotesque images and unexpected revelations.

- David Moody  (Author of the ‘Autumn’ and ‘Hater’ series.) 

A lock and load adventure of the highest calibre. A tense, absorbing journey and a high speed collision of military action and apocalyptic horror. Blackhawk Down meets Day of the Dead. Oora!"
-  Adam Nevill  (Author of ‘Apartment 16’, ‘The Ritual’.)

There's no denying the strength of Baker's prose. It's violent and blokey... but also intelligent. The first 100 pages, especially, are rich with harrowing detail about the last days of Saddam's regime... Juggernaut is a rewarding read.
- SFX Magazine

Adam Baker's style is very reminiscent of a combination of Matthew Reilly and James Patterson, and like both those authors, he uses it to tell a punchy story that keeps you engrossed from start to finish.
- Sci-Fi Bulletin

Juggernaut is populated with believable characters, strong dialogue and impeccably researched detail. These characters live, love, fight and betray their way through to the book's explosive finale... If you like zombies and survival horror then this book is for you. If you like to see just what man is capable of doing when his back is against the wall then this book definitely is the one for you.

An original and pacy debut.  
- Daily Mail 
What many people, including me, are raving about right now is Adam Baker's OUTPOST...a stunning debut novel . . . you will want to be one of the first people to experience it.  
- Books Monthly 
While ramping up the tension and confusion, Adam Baker also ramps up the action and despite the limited canvas of the Arctic landscape, manages to devise an impressive variety of situations for the characters.
