Tracer by Rob Boffard – Cover Reveal


By Rob Boffard

Official/final Cover Reveal

A few weeks back I got a chance to read an ARC of Rob Boffard’s fast paced sci-fi debut Tracer. I’m an action junkie–both in books and in movies, and Tracer delivered action on almost every page. But it’s a smart read too, and fast paced, with a twisty plot and some awesome set pieces.

You can read the full review here.

The fire blurring the text on the final cover below is pretty apt. This book is a searing read. Somewhere between Blade Runner, the TV show The 100, and with the intense action of a Michael Bay movie.

I’m a big sci-fi fan, but this novel holds appeal for anyone who likes a solid, action-packed read. There’s mysteries, murders, action, humor–in essence, something for everyone. It’s easily one of the best books I’ve read this year.

Tracer is released on July 2nd by Orbit. Look out for it.

About Sam Whitehouse

Sam spends most of his time in a different world to other people. If it isn’t one he’s created himself, it’s one he’s reading about. In the rare moments when this isn’t the case, Sam can either be found addicted to a sci-fi or crime show, re-watching Marvel movies, finishing up an assignment for his final year of studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, or trying to get the dozens of ideas for stories in his head under some kind of control. Sam has lived in the same small village in Yorkshire, surrounded by countryside on all sides ever since he could remember. His childhood saw him get into plenty of scrapes climbing trees and crossing rivers and generally believing he was Indiana Jones. Sam gives credit to his Grandad for him wanting to be a writer, and his bedtime stories for keeping Sam’s imagination stoked. But credit must also go to Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling and Stephen King, who have provided plenty of inspiration over the years, too. Sam writes what he reads, and that is pretty much anything—save romance. Fantasy, thrillers, or crime: once an idea takes root, he can’t stop until the world, characters, and plot are on paper. A huge Marvel fan, Sam one day hopes to pen a screenplay for one of their movies, or direct one, or do anything at all related to one. Until then, he’ll stick to his own fantasy worlds and wait for Marvel’s phone call.
