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 in the summer of 2019 and is being published by Minotaur Books. The second novel in the series—the title of which is known only to the author—will be published in late 2020.
The early reviews are coming in and everyone agrees that City of Windows, and its protagonist Dr. Lucas Page, blows the doors off the crime genre.

—Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series.
“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, New York Times bestselling author of First Blood, The Brotherhood of the Rose, and Murder as a Fine Art.
“I loved this thriller! 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, as irascible as he is brilliant. He’ll be back and so will I.”
—Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times bestselling author of the Orphan X series.

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