Product description


A New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice
A Daily Beast Best Book

 “It is the expansiveness of vision that raises Ordinary Thunderstorms above the run of the mill. Boyd has created a novel dripping with ideas and impressive in its scope….one cannot help but be swept along by the thundering narrative tide.”
— The Observer

“A top-drawer thriller with gripping social concerns.”
Edmonton Journal
Ordinary Thunderstorms . . . is written with Boyd’s characteristic energetic elegance and imminent-danger focused writingas well as his experienced screenwriting skills. . . . I love reading Boyd.”
The Globe and Mail
“Whip-crack smart, with a pace to match, Boyd ramps up the paranoia in this novel of identity and reinvention”
Marie Claire (UK)
“Eminently readable.”
The Guardian
“An elegant, gripping thriller.”
— The Daily Beast

“Great suspense stuff here, told with flair, compassion, and a high sense of humor.”
 — Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

From the Hardcover edition.
