“A mind-bending new series by the master of technothrillers…Anyone that says there isn’t a truly unique story anymore hasn’t read Matthew Mather’s Delta Devlin novels.” —Nicholas Sansbury Smith, New York Times bestselling author of Sons of War and the Hell Divers series
Fiction/Mystery & Detective
Meet Your Maker by Matthew Mather
In the Czar’s Suite of Kiev’s five-star Persian Palace, police discover a body jammed impossibly deep in a narrow ventilation duct. Security cameras reveal that no one else entered the supersecure room.
An ocean away, Interpol rookie Delta Devlin witnesses an attempted assassination, but the bullet meant for the Ukrainian prime minister hits her father instead, lodging next to his heart. Investigations reveal that ex–KGB operator Yuri Korshunov smuggled a 3D-printed plastic gun into the UN Building.
As her father falls into a mysterious coma, Devlin tracks down infamous tech wunderkind Lenny Bondar at the Maker Faire, a global gathering of hackers. Desperate, she follows Korshunov and Bondar into the underworld of Eastern Europe. There, her worst nightmares materialize from the darkness. Something is coming for her, and it may not even be alive.
With Russian troops massed on the borders, and her father on the brink of death, Del follows a trail of bizarre murders ever deeper into no-man’s-land. But can she uncover the truth and save her father before a new kind of war forever alters the world?
“Mather’s brand of speculative fiction is solidly rooted in technology’s near-term potential, rather than more fanciful, distant social and economic threats. He forces readers to contemplate a world, unnerving yet conceivable, that could soon be their own.” —Publishers Weekly
“Another home run from one of the genre’s top authors. Mather once again artfully weaves nail-biting action and high-tech wizardry into a relentless thrill ride.” —Steve Konkoly, Amazon Charts and Washington Post bestseller
“Mather has crafted a whip-smart and quick-footed international thriller with a likable protagonist and a plot honed out of hardwood. Taut, tightly crafted, and thrilling.” —Dana Haynes, author of St. Nicholas Salvage & Wrecking
“Mather’s chaotic scenes that place Del in life-threatening situations, and of which she expertly extricates herself, are well written and page turning.” —New York Journal of Books
