From the internationally bestelling novelist Rob Pobi comes Harvest, introducing the fiery Alexandra “Hemi” Hemingway as she tracks down a serial killer cutting a swathe across New York City.

A stifling heat wave rolls into New York City, amplifying the already critical level of tension in the fragile concrete ecosystem. Recently recovered from a shoot-out that nearly killed her, homicide detective Alexandra “Hemi” Hemingway is already on edge. But then, on the morning Hemi discovers she is pregnant, a twisted serial killer makes his debut. And the heat goes up.

Soon, Hemi is besieged on all fronts as she struggles to catch up to a killer who always seems one step ahead. And as she pieces together the clues along the trail, it isn’t long before tensions boil over and Hemi finds herself a target in the deadly competition.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gritty thriller I love that feeling I get in the first few pages of a new book when I realize that a) I'm in for a really good read and b)I've found a new author to follow. Such is the case with Rob Pobi and his new novel Harvest. A heat wave has blanketed New York City and a vicious killer is dismembering wealthy young white boys. Alexandra Hemingway - 'Hemi' is a NYC Homicide Detective. Pobi quickly immerses us in this character's life. Hemi is a tough as nails, take no prisoners, kick butt character that I loved right from the start. Her partner Phelps is also a character that I was immediately drawn to. He's the calmer, rational side of the duo. The depiction of their partnership and the dialogue between the two is easy and believable. Pobi includes a secondary personal storyline for Hemi that gives her character more depth. Pobi grabs the reader by the throat right from the get go - and never lets up. His plotting is excellent and really quite inventive. The ending twist was a nice little gotcha. The pacing is good as the chapters are short - perfect for reading just one more before turning off the lights. But you might want to leave the night light on....Harvest is not for the faint of heart - the crimes are disturbing and graphic. Harvest is the first book featuring Hemi and Phelps - and I really hope it's only the first of many. This is a duo I really liked. And one heck of a good read. Absolutely recommended for thriller fans.

Editorial Reviews

“Gripping.” —Publishers Weekly “[Hemi’s] struggle—against both internal and external demons—makes this a story for those who can stomach the carnage and existential questioning; they will be spellbound.” —Publishers Weekly “Pobi hit a few best-seller lists with Bloodman (2012), and he may strike gold again. The plotting here is airtight, but, above all, the novel delivers a frightening, Nietzschean horror show composed of equal parts hubris and unintended consequences. Fair warning: expect to sleep with the lights on after you turn the final page.” —Booklist “Not for the faint of heart nor the weak of stomach, American Woman by Robert Pobi is a gritty mystery about the stomach-turning acts of a serial killer who makes Hannibal Lecter seem almost benign.” —New York Journal of Books “So gripping the reader feels metaphorical hands around his throat, American Woman builds to a bloody, heart-stopping confrontation with a killer whose identity leaves both Hemi and Phelps shocked and disbelieving. If ever a suspense thriller deserves five stars, American Woman does.” —New York Journal of Books “If you like edgy crime fiction that doesn’t shy away from reality checks, Pobi is now a name to add to your list of essential reads.” —House of Crime & Mystery “A fantastic new voice in the thriller genre.” —New York Journal of Books “An author to watch.” —Globe and Mail
