Otto Parsons, a brilliant Oxford physicist is missing. Ever since his early experiments on zero gravity machines produced such unimaginable results, he knew he it wouldn’t be long until someone wanted to get their hands on the science, or even the scientist.

His professor, Dan Sibley, had to secure funding for their work or close the project down. What choice did he have when a wealthy organisation made him an offer that secured the project’s future. Only now it seems his backers may have an altogether darker agenda. Wheels are now in motion that cannot just be stopped. This is bigger than any of them could ever expected.

What is that connects their work with the assassination of JFK, the Roswell Incident, the Wall Street Crash and a mysterious cache of priceless art? And who are the shadowy partners of the October Foundation?

The answers will threaten the safety of everyone on the planet.

The October Men is the stunning, debut novel from David Impey that will challenge the conventions of story-telling. If you like well crafted thrillers by John le Carré and Colin Dexter or thought-provoking science fiction by John Wyndham, then The October Men is the novel you must read.

Mr Impey begins an intricate and mesmerizing story during the early days of WWI with a company of soldiers moving up to the front lines. He then goes forward describing other seemingly non-related events including the later attack on Pearl Harbor, 1941.  A series of color photos which appear to be beyond the range of photography during the periods covered by these photos calls attention to what is going on.

  The novel goes on describing other events and bringing into the picture a young Oxford physicist: Otto Parsons who has been conducting experiments in Quantum physics attempting to create zero gravity without going into outer space.  His work yields totally unexpected results which serve to tie together the various events described in the story.

  A group of scientists attempt to tie Parson's experiment together by producing a historical TV series that attempts to uncover the truth behind such isolated instances as the Roswell incident and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The show unfortunately attracts the attention of a group of international criminals who use the equipment developed by Parsons to take advantage of both the financial and art markets..

  A very interesting plot and a narrative that will capture and keep the reader's attention.

I devoured this book. It's not a small book but it is thrilling and intriguing. A genuine page-turner rather than just a description for a book you read and 'kind of enjoyed'. I thoroughly enjoyed every chapter and the way it all pulled together at the end was very clever. I like to read thrilling books that keep me guessing. I'm getting more and more fascinated by certain periods of history, such as the World Wars as well, so this element really piqued my interest, and the way the different times, places and characters overlapped was fascinating. A great debut novel written by someone who you'd think had already published a great number of books.

This is a brilliant book. It’s intelligent, slick, constantly surprising and a real page-turner. The complex plot is handled deftly and the pacey dialogue moves the reader along at a great lick. I discovered a lot about history - but was I learning the truth? Was I, as reader, in control of my responses or was the author as much in charge of me as of his characters? If you’re a thriller fan, love intrigue and a provocative storyline, The October Men is the book for you.

A clever and intriguing read. Having inadvertently invented a time machine, advantage starts to be taken of events in human history. Disappearances of members of the team involved, and the arrival of UK and US special services ramp up the intrigue. The plot unravels slowly and carefully, with short chapters aiding the narrative structure, and making this hard to put down. Really enjoyed it.

Lucy Williams /  Reviewer


A suspenseful read that rockets along sucking you into its slipstream, an intriguing concept that challenges our view of time, history and where we fit into this world of ours. A brilliant new writer, well written and well thought out with enough questions left unanswered for some meaty reflection. I highly recommend taking this plunge into the unexpected, a refreshing dive into thinking’s deep water; the challenge to step into the unknown hand in hand with the author without reaching for the life-raft.
