the lucas page series

Robert Pobi is writing an exciting new series starring Dr. Lucas Page, one of the most unique protagonists to ever step into the crime novel. Page is an astrophysicist, bestselling author, university professor, and former FBI agent who sees numbers—and people—in a way that is as unique as it is compelling. Page is not a man without his problems, however; an accident that he refers to as the Event left him with severe physical trauma that ten years, numerous surgeries, and sophisticated prosthetics have almost helped him forget.

The first novel, City of Windows, will hit book stores on August 6, 2019 and is being published by Minotaur Books. The second novel in the series—Under Pressure—will be published late 2020.

Everyone agrees that City of Windows, and its protagonist Dr. Lucas Page, blows the doors off the crime genre.

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 Jeffrey Deaver’s Lincoln Rhyme.’

The first instalment in the major new crime series starring Lucas Page.

it begins…

Manhattan is buried by the worst blizzard to hit the island in a century and everything stops dead. But it is neither the lunar temperatures nor the six feet of snow blanketing the concrete ecosystem that is paralyzing the city—it is the killer trophy-hunting the citizens.

University professor and reluctant former-FBI agent Dr. Lucas Page appears to be the only man able to find the perfect killing machine. But when things go wrong, and his children become targets, he learns that it is impossible to hide from a man with a rifle in a city of windows.
