Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent Bill Tasker is still smarting from a near-lethal run-in with the FBI. But he reluctantly helps the Bureau track down a stolen Stinger missile. As usual, the Feds take all the credit—but something about this whole setup doesn’t feel right. Tasker decides to poke around, and stirs up trouble with his boss, the FBI, the ATF, and, worst of all, a gentleman who loves to blow things up—the bigger, the better. The bomber hasn’t killed anyone yet, but if Tasker keeps snooping around—well, there’s a first time for everything…


“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
