Summary of Shock Wave Summary of Shock Wave Reviews for Shock Wave An Excerpt from Shock Wave

"An entertaining combination of a police procedural and a comedic romp that will have readers laughing on the edges of their seats...Step aside, Carl Hiaasen...there's a new sheriff in town!"—Chicago Sun-Times

There's Die Hard action in James O. Born's second novel featuring Florida law enforcement agent Bill Tasker, who's stirring up trouble with a bomber who hasn't killed anyone--yet.

“With its tempo clicking like a timer on an explosive, Shock Wave makes for one compelling read.”—January Magazine

“Readers will be riveted.”—The Miami Herald

“Shock Wave even surpasses Born’s excellent debut, Walking Money, by putting the author firmly in the territory owned by Elmore Leonard and Donald Westlake.” —Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
