"Intricately crafted and clocklike in its controlled release of psychological and geopolitical tension."
— Kirkus Reviews
"Seymour shifts focus among his large cast with a nimbleness that heightens suspense, sustains interest and creates a rooter's sympathy for (or at least an understanding of) even the most violent characters . . . To the author's aesthetic credit, Timebomb ticks to a satisfying if ambiguous conclusion." — Wall Street Journal
