The Bomb Maker Read Online Free - A bomb is more than a weapon. A bomb is an expression of the bomber's predictions of human behavior--a performance designed to fool you into making one fatally wrong move. In The Bomb Maker, Thomas Perry introduces us to the dark corners of a mind intent on transforming a simple machine into an act of murder--and to those committed to preventing that outcome at any cost. A threat is called into the LAPD Bomb Squad and when tragedy ensues, the fragmented unit turns to Dick Stahl, a former Bomb Squad commander who now operates his own private security company. Just returned from a tough job in Mexico, Stahl is at first reluctant to accept the offer, but his sense of duty to the technicians he trained is too strong to turn it down. On his first day back at the head of the squad, Stahl's three-person team is dispatched to a suspected car bomb. And it quickly becomes clear to him that they are dealing with an unusual mastermind--one whose intended target seems to be the Bomb Squad itself.
As the shadowy organization sponsoring this campaign of violence 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.

No BOOM here, just a DUD!
I've never read a Thomas Perry novel before, so I didn't know what to expect, but I tell you what I didn't expect, I didn't expect it to read like a debut novel. Which, I guess isn't exactly fair, because I've read a lot of really great debut novels, but this novel just l...

This is a good book if you are an engineer type, and love to read the technical detail in fiction tale. There are not many of them out there that do that task to this degree. Some in Sci. Fi. but not in this genre.
It's completely action, copper bomb squad LA cored. And it's a singular man that th...

Oh man . . . this brings me back to the conflict I felt trying to discuss Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes. This is a heckuva read until it's not -- but we'll get to that in a bit.
I know precious little about Bomb Sq...

I've been a Thomas Perry fan since I first read The Butcher's Boy and this is one of the best. Not as much depth of characterization as with some of his books and a new twist in that he never names the bomber or goes into any detail about his background, just detailed information about the *trade...

Perry is BACK fullbore! As if he ever went away. The Bomb Maker has you on the seat of your chair reading into the wee hours non-stop. Hopefully, one or more surviving characters will appear again. This was just an excellent read!

I guess Old Man is going to remain my favorite book by this author. This latest book held my interest up to the point of no return when things could not hold together as plausible.
It starts out with another really interesting, intelligent and skilled man who knows how to rescue kidnapped busines...
