9780425209233: Shock Wave (A Billy Tasker Mystery)

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...

About the Author:

James O. Born is a special agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, where he is involved with a wide variety of criminal investigations. He has also worked with the U.S. Marshals Service.

From Publishers Weekly:

An eccentric cast and a credible plot lift Born's second Florida-set crime novel (after 2004's Walking Money). Bill Tasker, agent in Florida's Department of Law Enforcement, is recovering from his divorce as well as from nearly being set up for arrest by a rogue FBI agent. He comes up against the usual local lowlifes when he busts the would-be seller of a black market Stinger missile. He suspects others might be involved, at first believing Daniel Wells, a repairman with a beautiful wife, to be in on the business. When evidence turns up that suggests otherwise, Wells is released—after which it is revealed that he might have been responsible for a recent deadly bombing and could be planning something even bigger. With the help of his friend, Miami cop Derrick Sutter, and the limited assistance of ATF agent Camy Parks, Tasker starts to dig. Wells has an uncanny ability, however, to stay just ahead of his pursuers. Brisk if a little confusing at the beginning as the plot threads are worked into place, the narrative picks up considerable speed and comes to a satisfactory, if open-ended, conclusion. Agent, Peter Rubie. (Apr. 21)
