Shock Wave (Virgil Flowers Novels)by John Sandford
Synopses & Reviews
A billion-dollar superstore has its sights set on a small Minnesota river town for its next outlet. Two very angry groups want to stop it: local merchants, fearing for their businesses, and environmentalists, predicting ecological disaster. The protests are ignored, until a bomb goes off at the megastore’s Michigan headquarters — the first of a series of explosions.
The blasts are meant to inflict maximum damage and utmost fear. They do. Virgil Flowers has been enlisted to find out who’s behind the dangerous acts, but the answer he uncovers may be the biggest shock of all.
"Once you start Shock Wave, you'll read it straight through, quickly, compulsively, happy the whole time to be in such good hands.” The Washington Post
“Wry humor, a fully realized lead, and tense atmospherics…one of his best outings to date.” Publishers Weekly
“The Flowers series is…formed from the same elements that make the Davenport books such a joy to read: sharp characterization, witty dialogue and, at heart, a gritty, often puzzling mystery. If Shock Wave is any indication, Flowers has a better than even chance of equaling if not surpassing Davenport in the hearts and minds of Sandford’s legion of readers.” Bookreporter.com
