About The Book

From the internationally bestselling author of Eye of the Storm comes a new novel 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.

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.”


“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.”
