'Told at a ferocious pace in staccato prose, this thriller truly gets the blood racing' Daily Mail on City of Windows
A series of deadly explosions rock the city of New York and with too many victims and no known motive, the FBI turns once again to Dr Lucas Page.
On a calm New York evening, an explosion shatters through the Guggenheim Museum, killing hundreds. The attack is planned and meticulous, suggesting the many casualties might be hiding a specific target. Only one man has the extraordinary mind to assist with the case.
Retired FBI agent-turned-astrophysicist Dr Lucas Page has a unique perspective on the mathematical planning behind the attack. And when a second bomb rocks the city, Lucas thinks he sees a pattern - but it's not the one the police are pursuing.
Lucas must trust his instincts to find and stop the killer - before countless more lives are lost...
Praise for City of Windows:
'I loved this' Lee Child
'A page-turner painted in soaring prose' Gregg Hurwitz
'It can only be a matter of time before Netflix makes Mr Pobi an offer he can't refuse, this is a series that has all the ingredients to run and run' Shots Magazine
In Pobi's stellar sequel to 2019's City of Windows, astrophysicist, bestselling author, and former FBI agent Lucas Page, who was severely injured in an accident years earlier and now has a prosthetic arm and leg, reluctantly returns to duty after a thermobaric bomb explodes in Manhattan's Guggenheim Museum during a private gala, killing more than 700 people with little damage to the building. The alleged bomber sends a manifesto of sorts to news outlets calling for immediate revolution and a rejection of technology. As the bombings continue and the body count rises Page uses his unique way of looking at the world in geometric terms to find connections among the targeted sites and victims. Page stands out as a highly unusual lead in a crowded genre, and Pobi combines a razor sharp sense of humor with surgical use of political and social commentary throughout. This is a must for fans of sophisticated crime fiction.
