(From the publisher):
Critics and fans alike have taken Virgil Flowers to their hearts: "Smart, sexy with a wicked sense of humor. Flowers is fast becoming one of my favorite characters." Minneapolis Star Tribune, "Flowers works with gruff charm and Spenser-like efficiency, a winning combination." Entertainment Weekly, "Flowers is smart and honest with a healthy supply of cynicism in a thoroughly engaging, suspenseful, satisfying story." Associated Press.
And Flowers new case? It's explosive-literally.
Talk about risky business.
The superstore chain Pye Mart has its sights set on a Minnesota river town, but two very angry groups want to stop it; the local merchants fearing for their business; and the environmentalists predicting ecological disaster. The protests don't seem to be slowing the project down, though, until someone decides to take matters into their own hands.
The first bomb goes off on the top floow of PyeMart's headquarters. The second one explodes at the construction site itself. The blasts are meant to influct maximum damage-and they do. Who's behing the bombs, and how far will they go? It's Flowers job to find out...before more people get killed.
Filled with brilliant plotting and compulsively readable prose that are Sandford's hallmarks, "Shock Wave" is another masterpiece by one of our very best suspense wirters.
