Tom Holt, noted for his humorous fiction, excels in the shaggiest of shaggy dog stories in Blonde Bombshell. He takes the reader on a whirlwind ride as a bank security consultant and a computer whiz stand between the Earth and a massive bomb designed to destroy it. Luckily, the intelligent bomb decides to investigate why its predecessor failed to do the job. Worried the apparently undefended Earth has a secret defense system, it sends probes to seek information.

From official release/information:

From Orbit website: The year is 2017. Lucy Pavlov is the CEO of PavSoft Industries, home of a revolutionary operating system that every computer in the world runs on. Her personal wealth is immeasurable, her intelligence is unfathomable, and she’s been voted ‘Most Beautiful Woman’ for three years running. To put it simply – she has it all.

One thing, however, is not quite right in Lucy’s life. She doesn’t realize it yet, but she is in fact a bomb.

And not just any old bomb. Lucy is a very big, and very smart bomb, and her mission is to blow up the planet known as Earth.
