Synopsis

Product Description (Source: BDB):

A bomb is more than a weapon. A bomb is an expression of the bomber's thoughts about you, his predictions of your behavior--a performance designed to fool you into making one fatally wrong move. In The Bomb Maker, Edgar Award-winning author Thomas Perryintroduces us to the dark corners of a mind intent on transforming a simple machine into an act of murder--and to those committed to preventing that outcome at any cost. A threat is called into the LAPD Bomb Squad, a team dispatched to a house whose owner is away, and a bomb disguised inside photography equipment exploded in the kitchen. But it is a second bomb hidden in the basement that has devastating consequences--half of the entire Bomb Squad is obliterated within seconds. The fragmented unit turns to Dick Stahl, a former Bomb Squad commander who now operates his own private security company. Having just returned from a grueling job in Mexico, Stahl is reluctant to accept the offer, but senior technicians he had trained were among those killed. On his first day back at the head of the squad, Stahl's team is dispatched to a suspected car bomb outside a gas station. It quickly becomes clear to him that they are dealing with the same mastermind behind the weapon that killed fourteen highly trained men and women barely twenty-four hours before--and that the intended target may be the Bomb Squad itself. As the shadowy organization sponsoring this campaign of terror puts increasing pressure on the bomb maker, and Stahl becomes dangerously entangled with amember of his own team, the fuse on this high-stakes plot only burns faster. The Bomb Maker is Thomas Perry's biggest, most unstoppable thriller yet--

Product Review (NBD):

Praise for The Bomb Maker "Plenty of character, plenty of emotion, plenty of insider expertise, but most of all plenty of irresistible momentum toward a fantastic climax--in other words, The Bomb Maker is typical Thomas Perry."--Lee Child, #1 bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series "An explosive (pun intended) new book from an old pro. Thomas Perry has skillfully captured the super stressful world of the LAPD Bomb Squad, and gotten deep into the head of a mad bomber. This is the ultimate cat-and-mouse game, a story so tense and riveting that you'll find yourself holding your breath as the timer ticks off the seconds. The Bomb Maker is a unique achievement, a wonderful mix of psychological thriller and high-tech entertainment. Perry always delivers."--Nelson DeMille, bestselling author of The Cuban Affair and Gold Coast "A brilliant novel! The Bomb Maker moves from first page to last like, yes, a ticking improvised explosive device. But it's more than a book that sets a new standard for page turner; rarely have we seen such a searing look into the mind of a very particular--and particularly fascinating--type of evil. And then, of course, Perry has given us lucky readers the inimitable Dick Stahl. What a hero for our time!"--Jeffery Deaver, #1 bestselling author of The Burial Hour and the Lincoln Rhyme series Advance Praise for The Bomb Maker "Plenty of character, plenty of emotion, plenty of insider expertise, but most of all plenty of irresistible momentum toward a fantastic climax--in other words, The Bomb Maker is typical Thomas Perry."--Lee Child, #1 bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series "An explosive (pun intended) new book from an old pro.

Nobody writes chase scenes like Perry."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review, on The Old Man "Guns are ubiquitous in Thomas Perry's breathtaking Forty Thieves, a double-barreled Southern California thriller that moves almost faster than a speeding bullet."--Tom Dolan, Wall Street Journal, on Forty Thieves "This stand-alone thriller combines high-octane suspense with comic capering . . . Perry delivers a perfect melding of character and plot, light and dark, and he totally immerses the reader in an irresistible narrative."--Bill Ott, Booklist, "Top 10 Crime Novels of the Year," on Forty Thieves "Since his Edgar Award-winning debut novel, The Butcher's Boy . . . Thomas Perry has put together a rewarding string of suspense novels with as much cool competence as some of his best protagonists bring to their work . . . Perry's a real pro."--Shelf Awareness, on The Old Man
