50 Most Anticipated Books of 2018

Barry Award Nominee

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 Perry introduces 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.

“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 best-selling author of the Jack Reacher series

“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!”

––Jeffrey Deaver

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 time 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, author of THE CUBAN AFFAIR and other best sellers

“Perry never fails to surprise and entertain, but with THE BOMB MAKER, he raises the suspense level to teeth-grinding. You can actually reach the point where you’ll be afraid to turn the page for learning what occurs next. This is a masterwork by an author who always delivers more than is required or expected.”

––Joe Hartlaub, Book Reporter
