Shock Wave by John Sandford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As always Virgil entertains.
Someone is trying to prevent a PyeMart from being built in Butternut Falls, the key is finding out how they snuck a bomb into the highly secure PyeMart headquarters.
Virgil is also investigating the bribing of local officials who changed the zoning code allowing the PyeMart to be built. When he discovers one of the officials who took a bribe is cheating on his wife, Virgil uses the info to get her to betray her husband. The cheating hubby then agrees to wear a wire so they can get the goods on the other officials.
Then it appears the bomber blew himself up, but Virgil isn't buying it. He continues to investigate and when all clues point to Wyatt sticks a tail on him. But when he is blown up shortly after entering the old farmhouse on his property, Virgil knows he is being manipulated and the key is Wyatt's wife.
