Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Brilliant"
    Would you listen to Bombproof again? Why?

    I've listened to this twice in three days already


    What other book might you compare Bombproof to, and why?

    Can't name one but anything pacey with flashes of black humour.


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Very well read. Different voices excellent,to the point where the narrator became part of the story.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me grin a good few times,and catch my breath.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a fantastic listen.Fast,occasionally funny,and however unlikely the scenario,believable.

    "Couldn't really get into it"

    I've listened to many of the books in this series, and have to say that this isn't one of the greatest. Sean Barrett did make the best of a weak plot. He is an excellent narrator.
    This particular book did not include Joe O'Loughlin. The psycological angle was therefore missing. This was more about bombs, guns and chases. Some good humour creeping in in places.

    "Great story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bombproof to be better than the print version?

    Yes because I don't have time to read a print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tense, up to date story with a good ending.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Better.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The shooting of the wrong person by the gunman in the hotel opposite.


    Any additional comments?

    Kept me listening on several occasions when I should have been doing something else.

    "Bombproof "

    Once again author Michael Robotham takes us into the dark murky world of London's underworld. Sami Macbeth, a newly released ex-con needs to find his sister Nadia to save her from a life of vice.

    Pacy and thrilling, this book has all the right elements and even boasts a strong supporting role for former DI Vincent Ruiz.

    The narrator, Sean Barrett is excellent.

    once again a brilliant story, characters and narration. Vincent Ruiz is the main character but equally as interesting as Robotham's Joe Mcloughlin. l have now listened to them all, can't wait for the next.
