The Living Bomb

(A book in the Ed Noon series)
A novel by


"Great life. Guns, girls and trouble. All kinds of trouble. From getting hit on the
head to being kidnapped in broad daylight."--Ed Noon, Private Eye

<>Ed Noon's career takes a sharp turn when he is hired by the President of the United States to find America's number one nuclear scientist, who has mysteriously disappeared, and with him, the designs for America's most powerful nuclear super-weapon.<>

Homer Conroy, America's number one nuclear scientist, mysteriously disappears, and with him the secret formula for the biggest bomb, the Cobalt. A concerned President assigns Noon to find Conroy, and once more Noon is thrust among a cast of international terrorists and troublemakers: a giant named Mr. Colombo, a silky assassin named X. X. St. John, a sex queen scientist, Ilona Dorn. The case takes Non from the Potomac to the U.N. Building. Peg Temple, now a movie star, walks back into Noon's life.


The Adventures of Ed Noon, Private Eye, span over 30 novels written between 1953 and 1990. Noon starts out dirt poor with a tiny office in Midtown Manhattan (his "Mouse Auditorium") but success moves him to better digs, a lovely secretary (Melissa Mercer) and, eventually, the most important client of all: the President of the United States. The series concludes with a daring turn toward science fiction in the last two novels. Through it all, the wisecracking Noon is consistent: a movie and baseball-obsessed romantic who always fights the good fight. And, more often than not, wins.
