Bombproof

SAMI MACBETH IS NOT A MASTER CRIMINAL. HE’S NOT EVEN A MINOR ONE…

He’s not a jewel thief. He’s not a safe- cracker. He’s not an expert in explosives. Sami plays guitar and wants to be a rock god but keeps getting side-tracked by unforeseen circumstances.

Fifty-four hours ago Sami was released from prison. Thirty-sex hours ago he slept with the woman of his dreams at the Savoy. An hour ago his train blew up. Now he’s carrying a rucksack through London’s West End and has turned himself into the most wanted terrorist in the country.

Fast, funny, hip and violent, BOMBPROOF is a non-stop adventure full of unforgettable characters and a heart-warming hero – Sami Macbeth – a man with the uncanny ability to turn a desperate situation into a hopeless one.

“This is a dark and gripping romp with a keen satirical edge. It is scary and fun, but something else entirely to the Robotham we have become used to.”

The Times (UK)

“It’s a terrific read: fast-paced, confident and concise.”

The Guardian

“A snappy, pacy page-turner.”

The Daily Mail (UK)

“Short, punchy sentences, pithy character portraits and a plot that hurtles from one crisis to another make BOMBPROOF a pleasure to read.”

Sydney Sun-Herald

“Take a macho but lovable hero, a few glam females, toss in a smoking gun and a pile of drugs, mix it up with one bent cop and one honest ex-cop with heaps of violence and a splash of sex, and you have a darn good yarn… Robotham really knows how to write.”

The Herald (South Africa)

“The plot is strong and unpredictable, and the characters are full of depth. Sami Macbeth is the most unlikely of heroes and readers will find themselves taking his side and willing him on. BOMBPROOF is punchy and packed with attitude: and best devoured in one sitting.”

The Citizen (South Africa)

“BOMBPROOF will have you laughing, gasping, shaking your head and holding your breath through each of its 275 pages.”

It’s Anytime (South Africa)
