They'll pay him a fortune to find a killer tornado for their movie.
He knows the risks all too well, but he never imagined just how dangerous the perfect storm could be.
Chuck Rittenburg was one of the most intrepid storm chasers in the country until a bad decision resulted in the death of a young couple who'd paid to ride along. A decade later - broke, divorced, and estranged from his college-age children - he's got nothing left to lose. When a film producer offers Chuck one million dollars to help find and photograph a deadly tornado in Oklahoma, Chuck sees a chance to earn his kids' respect again-and maybe his own.
The situation quickly becomes about more than tracking a monster tornado for Hollywood. FBI Agent Gabi Medeiros insists on riding along. A burglary ring is targeting tornado-ravaged neighborhoods, and their tactics now include murder.
With the stage set for a major heist, a deadly supercell, and a confrontation between Man and Nature on an epic scale, Chuck and his crew will be lucky to escape in one piece.

A great story with interesting characters.
Yes. I think the narrator does a brilliant job in bringing the book to life.
Chuck. He's incredibly flawed and unlucky but he's a decent guy. I like the aspects with his son and the job that he's doing and his story concludes in a satisfactory way that I enjoyed. I find myself hoping that we can see him and his friends in another book. They worked well together.
No. But the narration was spot on for characters, pace, driving the story. I really enjoyed it.
That's hard as there are obvious synergies with Twister. But this book has its most interesting elements in a film crew pushing Chuck to be reckless and thieves taking advantage of disasters all on a collision course. How do yo tag line that because that's what I'd tag line.
