MEET LUCAS PAGE: A DETECTIVE WHO SEES CRIME FROM A DIFFERENT ANGLE...

'A great plot, a great setting, and even better characters - I loved this' Lee Child


'Told at a ferocious pace in staccato prose, this thriller truly gets the blood racing'
Daily Mail

Severely injured on a case, Page retired from the FBI to become a professor. But now his friend has been killed by a sniper in New York and Page's extraordinary mind is needed urgently.

The shot that killed the man should have been impossible: in the middle of a blizzard, down a busy New York avenue, into a moving car. But it happened.

Only Page can work out the science behind the shot, the geometry that reveals the killer's location. The logic that says the shooter has killed like this before. And will do it again, and again, until they are stopped ...

'A page-turner painted with soaring prose' Gregg Hurwitz

Praise for this book

"Relevant, smart and action-packed, CITY OF WINDOWS is The Day of the Jackal for Trump's America." - Chris Brookmyre

"A tough, wise, knowing narrative voice, a great plot, a great setting, and even better characters - I loved this." - Lee Child

"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

"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

"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
