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.
Fast, funny, hip, and violent, Bombproof is a nonstop adventure full of unforgettable characters and a heartwarming hero - Sami Macbeth - a man with the uncanny ability to turn a desperate situation into a hopeless one.

"A huge disappointment"
I was so excited to see a new Michael Robotham book read by Sean Barrett since this has always been a perfect combination of plot and performance. 'Bombproof' did not provide this pleasure. Certainly, Sean Barrett can squeeze some drama out of the telephone directory but here he was pressed to do much with a badly plotted book with an unbelievable central character. Obviously Rowbotham has a host of fans (myself included) who he needs to supply with books but i would rather wait than read a book obviously written in haste without much care.
I've listened to this twice in three days already
Can't name one but anything pacey with flashes of black humour.
Very well read. Different voices excellent,to the point where the narrator became part of the story.
Made me grin a good few times,and catch my breath.
Just a fantastic listen.Fast,occasionally funny,and however unlikely the scenario,believable.
I normally love Michael Rowbothams books and have them allHe made remarks about northern people which got my back up.Sean Barrett is as always excellent.I so looked forward to this book and had it n pre--orderIt did not measure up to his othersI miss Joe
yes I have his full collecton
He makes it more exciting and accents are really good well done Sean
This is just my opinion, and others may like it but not for me, and thats the first time I felt like thatMichael a lot of people who read your books are northern and man united fansso maybe in future you lay off the insults, and yes I know this is fiction.
A great listen, likeable characters, fast paced story. Excellent narration as always by Sean Barrett. Made me want to look up Michael Robotham's other novels.
"Love the author and narrator"
Loved it. Michael has given me hours of enjoyment & Sean has become such an important part for me.
"Michael Robotham sets the bar high"
Yes. It's edge-of-the-seat stuff!
The action starts in the first paragraph and never lets up. Amazing
I was so caught up with the main character, my eyes were moist at the end
Sean Barrett - spot on!
up to Rowbothams usual standard- kept me hooked from start to finish.
good old Vincent Ruiz
"Not his best, but still great!"
The bad reviews others had left concerned me, but I was pleasantly surprised. Entertaining and fast paced and Sean Barrett does as always a great job👌
The unexpected shifts in emphasis
Escape from the train wreckage
Always believable and totally absorbing.
No single moment. It was all very good.
Good story telling by Michael Robotham, with an added touch of humour, a happy ending and above all the blissful narration of Sean Barrett What's not to love
