Another hit from Boyd Morrison
Boyd Morrison has written a terrific thriller, “Rogue Wave.”
Over the remote central Pacific, an airliner halfway to Sydney is rocked by a massive explosion. Despite the pilot’s valiant efforts, the blast sends it plummeting into the ocean, leaving no witnesses to the fireball.
(OK, Boyd and I keep crashing airplanes. We’re both looking for a support group. “Hi. My name’s Dana and I have a problem with plane-crashing…”)
Kai Tanaka, director of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Honolulu, notes a minor seismic disturbance in that region but doesn’t make the connection with the lost airliner. There’s no reason to be worried about his wife, who is the manager of a luxury hotel, or his daughter, who is enjoying the sunny holiday morning at Waikiki with friends.
When all contact with Christmas Island and its three thousand inhabitants is lost, Kai is the first to realize that Hawaii faces a catastrophe of epic proportions: in one hour, a series of massive waves could wipe out Honolulu. He has just 60 minutes to save the lives of a million people, including his wife and daughter.
