Review for Jon Jefferson’s Wave of Terror:

Jefferson’s Wave of Terror takes the terrorist novel to the next level. The book interweaves the narratives of astronomer Megan O’Malley, the one to discover the explosive seismic shifts along a geologic fault line that could unleash an apocalyptic disaster, and FBI Special Agent Chip Dawtry, who’s determined to prevent the next terrorist attack on the United States. A 150-foot wall of water is ready to wipe out the US Eastern Seaboard, and it is up to this unlikely pair to to stop the terror from ensuing.

“Jefferson has crafted a compelling, action-packed spy thriller that’s part James Bond and part big-budget disaster movie.” - Chapter 16
