Présentation de l'éditeur

A stifling heat wave rolls into New York City, amplifying the already critical level of tension in the fragile concrete ecosystem. The air tastes of electricity—the negative charge of bad things to come—but everyone hopes it’s just the temperature. Then, on the morning homicide detective Alexandra “Hemi” Hemingway finds out she is pregnant, a twisted serial killer makes his debut. And the heat goes up.

Not for the faint of heart—American Woman is a relentless ride that takes you through the fractured world of a nascent killer. And you will never feel safe again.

Biographie de l'auteur

Robert Pobi is the international bestselling author of Bloodman, a novel that earned a spot on the 2012 Summer Reading List for O, The Oprah Magazine. It was published in more than a dozen countries and became an international bestseller, garnering comparisons to “Thomas Harris in his prime” by Sarah Weinman of the National Post. Pobi’s other novels include the classic tale Manheim Rex and the disquieting thriller Deselected (coming January 2015). Visit the author’s website at www.RobertPobi.com.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Twisted, gritty, well written and not for the squeamish. 8 mai 2014
Par QueenKatieMae - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Robert Pobi's debut novel, Bloodman, was a jaw-dropping mystery thriller about a violent serial killer with an indelible twist for an ending. I was hooked. His third novel, American Woman, is also a jaw-dropper full of violence, ends with a haunting twist, and ultimately proves Pobi is a talented author. His ability to keep the reader riveted, while also making them squirm in horror, make his stories an exceptional experience. He knows how to write a story that will haunt the reader for days.

The beginning of American Woman introduces the reader to Alexandra Hemingway as she kayaks on the Hudson River during an overwhelming heat wave. Having just discovered she is pregnant, Hemingway is in conflict like any woman faced with this life changing circumstance. But, when the six foot tall Hemingway prevents a mugging by breaking a man's wrist and shooting his accomplice with her own gun, the reader realizes this is not any ordinary woman. Alexandra Hemingway is a NYPD detective with a sharp mind, a quick wit, and an unusual past.

Hemingway and her partner, the fatherly Jon Phelps, are called in when the body of a ten year-old boy is pulled out of the river. His feet have been sawed off. The story grows more horrifying when another ten year-old is found with his hands also sawed off. The NYPD is faced with a serial killer. The detectives attempt to solve the case when events grow even more disturbing. These murders are not random; there are definite connections that force Hemingway and Phelps into a race to find the killer before he strikes again.

There are moments it seems that the flinty and dauntless Hemingway is lacking a heart. After the murder of someone she knows, she sheds no tears. Her ability to work without sleep, barely stopping to eat, is almost superhuman. But, throughout the book, Hemingway inner thoughts expose her conflicted feelings about bringing a child into such a violent world. It is these moments that make the reader realize that while Hemingway is a driven woman, she is also vulnerable.

Because the murders involve children and the horrific circumstances involved in their deaths, this story is not for the squeamish. Pobi does not pull punches. And, he keeps the reader guessing until the bitter end. With multiple twists and red herrings, the reader will think, as Hemingway does, that they have solved this mystery. And, like Hemingway, the reader will be wrong again and again.

It is a great mystery thriller and I recommend it for those who love twists and the twisted. You will not be disappointed. And it will stick in your mind

(After I finished the book I found out it had been published in the U.K. under the title River of the Dead which I found to be much more appropriate. American Woman kept reminding me of the song by the Guess Who. That also got stuck in my mind...for days.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dark, Unflinching, and Beautifully Written 12 mai 2014
Par Jaden Terrell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Having read Robert Pobi's first book, BLOODMAN, I expected AMERICAN WOMAN to be dark, unflinching, and beautifully written. I was not disappointed. Protagonist Alexandra "Hemi" Hemingway is a complex blend of strength and vulnerability, coming to grips with her own impending motherhood while searching for a sadistic child-killer. Prickly, tough, and brazen, she could have easily become a stereotype. Instead, I found her well-rounded and completely believable.Perfectly paced, this book, like BLOODMAN ends with a twist that is heartbreaking, yet somehow inevitable. Although this book is not for the faint of heart, the violence, while often graphic, is never glorified.Instead, Pobi uses it to explore the fragility of life, the illusion of safety, and the struggle between hope and hopelessness.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Characters! 8 mai 2014
Par Peggy Blair - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Rob Pobi is one of my favourite authors (Bloodman, renamed Eye of the Storm, reminded me of early Thomas Harris; the plot twist actually made me gasp.). American Woman, book one of a new series, doesn't disappoint. Hemingway is one of those female characters you find yourself rooting for, even though she'd slap you upside the head for even suggesting it -- this is a woman who's determined to go it alone and I can't wait to see how the series develops. I figured out who did it early on, so I'd give this book a 4.5 if Amazon would let me but it's still a great read by a really exciting new author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 American woman gonna mess your mind. - Guess Who 25 mai 2014
Par Cheryl Stout - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I am a big fan of author Pobi's work, having read Bloodman and Mannheim Rex, and thoroughly enjoyed the dark, twisted prose of this author. So it was a no-brainer to read Pobi's newest work of fiction.

Alexandra "Hemi" Hemingway really does mess with your mind. Six foot tall, independently wealthy, ready to take on the world, and a New York City Homicide Detective, she previously single handedly took on the killers of her prior lover and now she's after the mutilator and killer of young boys.

Hemi is the main protagonist of this story. I like her style, her fearlessness, her loyalty to her friend and partner Jon Phelps, and her soul searching as to what to do about an unexpected pregnancy.

The murders themselves are especially brutal so be FOREWARNED. The serial killer in this tale targets 10 year old children in especially heinous ways.

Well written with plenty of twists along the way, especially with a "killer" twist at the end, I recommend this winner to anyone who likes murder mysteries, serial killer tales, suspense novels and just plain well-written stories.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 GRUESOME & GRITTY 7 juillet 2014
Par booklover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
New York City homicide detectives Alexandra Hemmingway and Jon Phelps encounter a sadistic serial killer during a summer heat wave.

Hemingway is a woman who has just found out she's pregnant. She's also learning to live without a former lover who was murdered. At her side at all times is Detective Phelps.. a father figure and mentor.

The case they are working is terrifying. There are multiple child abductions and a psychopath who has a thing for removing appendages of his young victims.

I really liked the characters .. they are gritty and they are real. This is a real page-turner which will keep you reading until you're afraid to turn off the lights.

(RIVER OF THE DEAD and AMERICAN WOMAN are the same book)
