The initial draft of Bombshell was completed five months before the Fukushima catastrophe, written from the author’s morbid suspicion that the twenty-fifth anniversary of catastrophe at Chernobyl, Pripyat, and beyond would be marked by an echo in the present, shadowed by the real threat present in our unguarded and deteriorating nuclear facilities. Bombshell is a combustible and commercial step forward by one of our most creative and intellectual writers today.
“Reich's novel is chock full of explosive ideas conveyed with radioactive prose. His heroine Varyuska Cash makes Lisbeth Salander look like a dimwitted Mary Poppins. This is dangerous fiction - handle with extreme caution.” —Isaac Adamson, Edgar Award Finalist, Complication
"The feminist heroine is a fresh twist on the thriller genre." —Kirkus
