This is my next R book in the A-Z Book Challenge.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-six 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.

Sami Macbeth – the man with the uncanny ability to turn a desperate situation into a hopeless one.

Fast, funny, hip and violent, Bombproof is a non-stop adventure full of unforgettable characters and a heart-warming hero.

I bought this one at the Book Fair at Patterson Park in Metung. I think it cost $1.  It proved to be $1 well spent.  The book was an exciting read as it grabbed me right at the start and I finished it very quickly. Bombproof, by Michael Robotham, was published not long after the Tube bombings in London.
The protagonist, although he has been in prison, seems a likeable man.  I kept wondering what was the next disaster that was going to happen to him as he just seems to keep getting deeper and deeper into trouble.  I liked the fact that there was humour in the novel even though it was a suspenseful read.  This story is well worth the read.

  1. I like the humourous tone of the book blurb, that would make me want to read it, as well as your positive review.
