Reading & Signing with author Jon Jefferson

March 8 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


An unthinkable terrorist plot: The earth is shaking. The clock is ticking…

Astronomer Megan O’Malley sees things on a cosmic scale – hidden planets, colliding galaxies, imploding stars deep in the universe. But this time, she’s sensing something much closer to home. And she can feel it underfoot, too: explosive seismic shifts along a geologic fault line that could unleash an apocalyptic disaster. O’Malley also discovers something even more terrifying: the cataclysm is intentional. Someone is determined to trigger a mega tsunami – an immense wall of water that would devastate America’s entire East Coast.

FBI Special Agent Chip Dawtry is a big-picture guy, too. He lost his brother on 9/11, and ever since, he’s focused on preventing the next massive terrorist attack. Now, it isn’t hypothetical – it’s unfolding fast. But only he and O’Malley see the peril.

When O’Malley vanishes, Dawtry races to find her. It’s up to them to stop a 150-foot wall of water ready to roil – and kill millions of people. Each new terrifying rumble means it may be too late.


Jon Jefferson is a prolific author, veteran journalist, and seasoned documentary writer/producer. His two-part National Geographic documentary—Biography of a Corpse and Anatomy of a Corpse—took millions of viewers behind the razor-wire fence of the University of Tennessee’s renowned Anthropological Research Facility, better known as the Body Farm.

Under the pen name Jefferson Bass—collaborating with forensic legend Dr. Bill Bass—Jon has written ten crime novels in the New York Times bestselling “Body Farm” series. He’s also written two true-crime books about Bass’s career and cases.

Jon’s new thriller novel, Wave of Terror, weaves together fascinating science, a harrowing terrorist plot (based on a terrifying real-life possibility), crackling dialogue, and whip-smart protagonists: all the elements that have won legions of fans for the Body Farm novels.

A runner, cyclist, swimmer and rusty pilot, Jefferson lives and writes in Athens, Georgia.
