For tornado chaser Jack Andreas, an invitation to a lightning study means double the danger. As he sees it, what's not to love? He's intrigued by the job and fascinated by pilot Maribeth Lisbon, who must fly a research plane into the zap zone. Maribeth suspects he's trouble, especially when his charms set off all her alarms. In their way are scheming TV chaser Brad Treat and down-on-his-luck adventurer Aurelius Zane, intent on filming a wedding in front of a twister. The eccentric billionaire who funds the study has a secret agenda. And a mystic with a food truck tests them all. As fearsome storms put them in mortal peril, Jack and Maribeth find their toughest challenge may lie within. The sequel to FUNNEL VISION and TORNADO PINBALL, ZAP BANG concludes Chris Kridler's Storm Seekers trilogy with action, drama, humor and romance.
