Infused with sly wit and chilling dialogue, this exciting re-release is an action-packed tale of explosions, violence, and sex from acclaimed novelist Max Byrd.
Los Angeles is being rocked by a blast wave of terror. Six bombs have exploded unlike any ever seen before - precise, efficient, and unerringly lethal. Only one mind could have build them: Simon Caute. An explosives genius, Simon’s work, marked by a macabre wit, has left a signature of smoking ruins and corpses strewn across the continent. Only one man can match Caute for sheer cunning and technical expertisee: David Renner, who risks his job and his life as he races against time to save Jillian Speirs, a beautiful British actress with a violent past.
Byrd spins a gripping tale of violence and sex in Fuse Time, the ultimate ticking-clock thriller.
