City of Windows

City of Windows

The launch of a major new American thriller series with a brilliant hero: Lucas Page sees crime from a different angle, and only he can stop a series of impossible killings.

The shot is impossible.

In the middle of a blizzard, down a busy New York avenue, into a moving car.

The agent in charge knows of only one man with the skills to work out where the bullet came from. Lucas Page, former child prodigy and physics professor, sees crime from a different angle – his ability to read a scene is uncanny.

Page quit the FBI after it nearly cost him his life. He swore to stay away: but this victim is his former partner, and he can’t resist the call to help.

But the death is only the first in a series of meticulously planned murders, unlike anything Page has seen before.

To catch a seemingly unstoppable killer, Page must discover the well-hidden secret connecting the victims – before he and his family get caught in the crossfire…

‘A great plot, a great setting, and even better characters – I loved this.’ Lee Child, Sunday Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series

‘A page-turner painted with soaring prose that makes you want to read every sentence twice. In Dr Lucas Page, Robert Pobi has created a unique and modern protagonist…He’ll be back and so will I.’ Gregg Hurwitz, Sunday Times bestselling author of Orphan X

Reviews

Relevant, smart and action-packed, CITY OF WINDOWS is The Day of the Jackal for Trump's America.
Chris Brookmyre
I don't have space to list the many things that are done expertly in CITY OF WINDOWS. Just read it and start watching for Robert Pobi's next book.
Thomas Perry
A tough, wise, knowing narrative voice, a great plot, a great setting, and even better characters - I loved this.
Lee Child, <i>Sunday Times</i> bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
CITY OF WINDOWS is a white knuckle ride hurtling along at breakneck speed. A beautifully plotted thriller, but the best thing of all is its lead character. With Dr Lucas Page Robert Pobi has created one of the most fascinating and unique protagonists since Jeffery Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme.
Martyn Waites
CITY OF WINDOWS is that rarest of gems - a page-turner painted with soaring prose that makes you want to read every sentence twice. In Dr Lucas Page, Robert Pobi has created a unique and modern protagonist...He'll be back and so will I.
Gregg Hurwitz, <i>Sunday Times</i> bestselling author of Orphan X
Robert Pobi has written a winner with CITY OF WINDOWS, a novel that should establish him as an authentic, distinctive and entertaining new voice in crime fiction.
John Lescroart, author of <i>The Rule of Law</i>
A thrilling page turner with a unique and fascinating hero in Lucas Page. The narrative whips by at breakneck page and the plotting is smart and tense
Rob Reynolds
A stunner. One of the most impressive, compelling thrillers I've read in a long while. The plot moves at bullet velocity. The writing has an electric surge. Robert Pobi delivers a fresh, exciting new voice to thriller fiction.
David Morrell, author of <i>Murder As a Fine Art</i>
