Summary

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.

Product Description

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 a member 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.

Reviews/Praise

“Narrator Joe Barrett's phlegmatic tone is simpatico with protagonist Dick Stahl, a retired bomb disposal expert who now runs a security company.” —AudioFile

"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

“It’s no small feat to make the extended step-by-step defusing of the bombs, as well as the ritual of constructing them, fascinating listening, but Barrett succeeds at that and more.” —Booklist, Starred Review

“Perry’s latest thriller promises to be twisty, timely, and pulse-pounding: It explores how a mind and a culture transform a simple machine into an act of murder.”―Entertainment Weekly, “50 most anticipated books of 2018”

"Perry provides a hero worth caring about, a villain who keeps one step ahead of him, and a supporting cast designed to keep up the nerve-shredding suspense." —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
