Stephen Leather The Bombmaker. The Bombmaker had explained everything to him before closing the lid of the box and placing it in the blue holdall, the holdall that he was now carrying as casually as if it contained nothing more threatening than football kit.

Since he began writing in the late eighties, Stephen Leather’s novels focus on crime, terrorism, imprisonment and military service. Generally each of Leather’s novels are set in London, Europe or Asia. While many of his novels are written as stand alone books, Leather has penned several series that chronicle the adventure’s of a single protagonist.

The Bombmaker is a two-part British television drama serial, written and created by Stephen Leather, and directed by Graham Theakston. It first broadcast on Sky One on 8 April 2001, with the second and final episode following a week later on 15 April.

Supernatural detective Jack Nightingale investigates a spate of mysterious deaths in a struggling hotel. Two of his books, The Stretch and The Bombmaker, were made into movies. Plus six extra short stories from fans and writers drawing inspiration from the Blood Bath title and cover. Supernatural detective Jack Nightingale investigates a spate of mysterious deaths in a struggling hotel.

Andrea Hayes was one of the IRA's most deadly killers. But when a misplaced bomb ripped apart a group of passing kids, she left all that behind her.

Now, years later, she lives a quiet, suburban life with her husband and young daughter, and her days of violence seem a distant memory. But then her daughter is kidnapped by persons unknown, and the past comes knocking at her door . . . *********PRAISE FOR STEPHEN LEATHER

GoodLike
This is very different from the Spider books that got Stephen Leather to be recognized..and much better even though I liked his Spider books.
He takes his knowledge and applies it to a very different scenario. Good character development and outstanding plot.
Paster
I have already said so many good things about Stephen Leather's books, I don't know what else to say. Read them.
Kale
This book was a great read - I know it was on TV, I have been looking to buy the DVD with no luck. Perhaps it is just as well usually a lot is lost bringing the story to film.
Delalbine
Compelling characters. Tense, fast-paced. Wonderful plot development. Satisfying conclusion.
Silverbrew
Very amueterish . His late books are fantastic . This is poor.
Kazimi
Stephen Leather continues to write with authority and has the abilty to increase the tension in his story line.

I enjoyed it very much.

Stephen Leather delivers again with another "can;t put down" book. .
What would happen if two tons of fertilizer hit the fan?

During the first hundred pages of THE BOMBMAKER, one learns that four otherwise respectable Beijing Chinese - a general, two bankers, and a relative of former Communist Party First Secretary Deng Xiaoping - want to blow a bloody big hole in the center of London's financial district. Why isn't immediately apparent. Maybe they'd encountered a snippy foreign exchange teller on their last visit to The City. To work out the details, they employ a mysterious killer-for-hire named Egan, who coerces a former IRA bombmaker, Andrea Hayes, to construct the explosive device by kidnapping her young daughter, Katie. In the bad old days, Andrea specialized in fertilizer bombs, but gave up that line of work after accidently killing four young boys and maiming a fifth. For years, she's lived with her husband, Martin, who knows nothing of her past.

THE BOMBMAKER is such a first rate knuckle-biter that the unspecified reason for the plot, though eventually revealed, recedes into the background and the reader is left to fear for Katie in her basement prison, to empathize with Andrea confronting the repercussions of past notoriety and four-thousand pounds of smelly Bandini, and sympathize with Martin left alone, frantic, and without a clue. And it only gets better when MI5 finally gets dropped into the plot's mix.

The high-tension ending should leave even the most jaded of thriller readers satisfied. Oddly, however, it's spunky Katie's last act that prompted me to award 5 stars, even though she's given relatively little exposure in the overall story. Because of her, I ended up liking this book enormously. Cross my heart and swear to die.
