I am looking for a textbook on particle physics if there is such a thing. Can anyone recommend anything?

Sure. As you know may or may not know, one of the purposes of my company is to aid physicists and physics enthusiasts in various ways. One of the ways I found to help them is to compile a list of decent physics textbooks. Therefore earlier this year I did a literature search and used the information I gathered to generate lists of the physics texts I liked the most. The list is at: http://www.newenglandphysics.org/Science_Literature/Physics_Textbooks/physics_textbooks.htm

Notice that the list is arranged in categories according to the different subjects that the textbooks come in. The most important thing to take notice here is that most, if not all, of those textbooks can be found at either of the two locations for free. You just have to join in order to use the service.

Thanks Pete. I knew you'd have something.
