Publisher's Summary

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 14 highly trained men and women barely 24 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.

Bomb Maker- Life Taker!

Thomas Perry turns everything pens into sheer adrenaline pumping, heart pounding, riveting masterpieces! This, the newest release from Mr. Perry was a mixture of all the things we seek in books, and very rarely find all in one novel. This book is one of those anomalies which flawlessly intertwines the perfect mix of psychological, romance, hold on to your hats thrill rides, raises questions in regards to many of the characters, who are allusive and mysterious, leaving me questioning their motives. The mysteriousness combined with all the other facets meant I was not going anywhere I didn’t have to till I heard: audible hopes you have enjoyed this program.” That’s an understatement!
Invest a credit, you will be glad you did, and it will not disappoint! ( : 0 ] )

I hope there's a sequel coming!!!!

Leave it to Thomas Perry to write himself out of the ball park again! One thing about this author is you can count on consistency. His plots are very realistic, his characters are believable and likable and the situations are human.
This book has a bomb maker who for reasons of his own has hired out his services to the highest paying to completely destroy the bomb squad in LA.
His first bomb takes out 14 people (half of the bomb squad). With a madman reigning terror over the city, former commander of the bomb unit (Dick Stahl) is recruited to fill in until a permanent replacement can be found. Stahl has no idea who the bomber is but he has a knack for diffusing the bombs and circumventing the failsafe switches rendering the bomb useless.
Meanwhile , he begins a relationship with one of the women he is working along side of. This only gives the media more fodder for the benefit of their own careers. Then someone in the media is bombed and Stahl becomes a suspect.
Super book with a great ending.
Joe Barrett is one of my favorite narrators. He does an outstanding job narrating.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
