Description

‘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…

‘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
