Review quote

[Sandford] s a thorough professional who knows exactly what he s doing. Whether you re new to Sandford or not, whether you ve ever read a Virgil Flowers novel or not, 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...Sandford effortlessly conjures up the rhythms and personalities of a small town in one of his best outings to date. "Publishers Weekly" 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.
