The shot is impossible

‘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

In the middle of a blizzard, down a busy New York avenue, into a moving car.

And there’s nothing worse than hunting a killer with a rifle in a city of windows.

The agent in charge knows only one man with the skills to work out where the bullet came from. Lucas Page, physics professor and maths prodigy, quit the FBI after it nearly cost him his life. But he can’t resist the call to help, to prove that he is still capable of extraordinary things.

Because Page is wired to see crime from a different angle. The science that explains the impossible shot. The geometry that reveals the killer’s location. The logic that tells him this shooter has killed like this before. And will do it again, and again, until they are stopped…

‘It can only be a matter of time too before Netflix make Mr Pobi an offer he can’t refuse, this is a series that has all the ingredients to run and run’ Shots Magazine

‘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, Sunday Times bestselling author of Orphan X

Reviews

A tough, wise, knowing narrative voice, a great plot, a great setting, and even better characters - I loved this.
Lee Child, <i>Sunday Times</i> bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
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, <i>Sunday Times</i> bestselling author of Orphan X
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, author of <i>Murder As a Fine Art</i>
I don't have space to list the many things that are done expertly in CITY OF WINDOWS. Just read it and start watching for Robert Pobi's next book.
Thomas Perry
Robert Pobi has written a winner with CITY OF WINDOWS, a novel that should establish him as an authentic, distinctive and entertaining new voice in crime fiction.
John Lescroart, author of <i>The Rule of Law</i>
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
Relevant, smart and action-packed, CITY OF WINDOWS is The Day of the Jackal for Trump's America.
Chris Brookmyre
A thrilling page turner with a unique and fascinating hero in Lucas Page. The narrative whips by at breakneck page and the plotting is smart and tense
Rob Reynolds
Author Pobi and Character Page are even on the strength of this first outing shaping up to be the new dream team for fans of high concept thrillers. It can only be a matter of time too before Netflix make Mr Pobi an offer he can't refuse, this is a series that has all the ingredients to run and run

An absolute corker of a thriller

By the time the cranky, but loveable Page solves the who and the how, I suspect he'll have established himself as your new favourite sleuth
