How to buy The Devil's Wave
Here’s what they’re saying about The Devil’s Wave:
“Pick this one up. I rate it right up there with other great espionage writers such as Ken Follett and great storytellers like John Grisham! I can’t wait to read the next one!” Patty Smith – ujnews.com
Here’s what some satisfied readers think of the first Scott Adler novel:
“This is a great read. I really liked the characters and the connection to current events.”
“The Devil's Wave belongs in the "can't put down" category.”
“The main characters were dynamic and the story line held my interest from the first word to the last word.”
The island of La Palma in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is a ticking time bomb. On it there is a fault line that will rupture and force the land west of the fault – all 500 billion tons of it – to fall into the Atlantic Ocean. The tsunami this will cause will devastate the eastern seaboard of the United States.
American scientists Tom Delaney and Jane Simons – experts on tsunamis and volcanoes – are offered the chance to conduct British-sponsored research to inspect the fault line and the volcanoes on the island. They are not aware that the project head, Professor Golding, suspects that his deputy is involved in a plot to detonate a nuclear device inside one of the volcanoes and cause a mega-tsunami. Golding has no evidence to support his theory, but he plans to use the scientists to uncover the fault and draw attention to it. A mysterious plane crash introduces the controversial CIA agent, Scott Adler – the agent who provided misinformation about weapons of mass destruction in 2003 – to the story.
In a race against the clock to stop the terrorists from carrying out their intentions, Adler and Delaney confront the terrorists high on the island volcano and struggle to prevent an event that would result in the death of hundreds of thousands of people.
