"A minor seismic disturbance in a remote section of the Pacific causes barely a ripple of concern for Kai Tanaka, acting director of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Honolulu. But when an airliner en route from L.A. to Sydney vanishes in the same location, Kai is the first to realize that a mysterious explosion has unleashed a series of massive waves destined Hawaii. In just one hour, Kai will lose all he has ever known--including his wife and daughter--unless he can save them from nature's most destructive force."--P. [4] of cover.… (mere)

The Tsunami Countdown by Boyd Morrison 3.75/5

This is a very competent disaster book (I almost said movie, which I guess shows you my feelings for this book). It is a very easily digestible blend of action and disaster. This is a popcorn book that can be consumed in one go. It won’t stick with you but neither did “The Towering Inferno or The Core,” but they kept you on the edge of your seat and were worth the price of admission.

Written like a movie script, rather several movies that have already been made. Most of the plot was inprobabkle but it made for a good airplane read. ( )

Schnörkelloser Katastrophenthriller der alle Facetten des Genres bedient und flott zu lesen ist. ( )

This thriller starts out fast and speeds up. Kai Tanaka, loving father of thirteen-year-old Lani and equally loving husband of Rachel, finds he must risk his job with the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center to save his family. An event unprecedented in human history, but one which has actually been predicted for some time, could throw his world into chaos.
Kai is acting director of the PTWC when strange events start occurring. Most of the staff is absent or unavailable. Kai and Reggie are alone in the center when an earthquake registers in the south Pacific where one has never occurred. Sensors meant to relay data from various islands then mysteriously fail. At first, they issue a tsunami bulletin—a minor notification that is ignored—as usual. If Kai orders an unneeded evacuation it will cost the islands dearly and Kai may lose his job as a result.
But if he waits too long, it could be too late for the the entire population of Hawaii. The warnings may not only be too late, the standard tsunami procedures may be useless in the face of the unbelievable gigantic rogue wave that he is beginning to suspect is on its way.
His daughter is out of reach and his wife, manager of the swank Grand Hawaiian Hotel, is staying there too long, trying to save her clients, including a group of disabled vets. Lani's best friend, Mia and her mother Teresa have not picked a good time to visit from Seattle. Kai's reckless and irrepressible half-brother, Brad Hopkins—part playboy, part Hell's Angel—refuses to get out of the say and stay in the background during the crisis. But he comes through in the crisis, in his own way.
Kai must choose between losing his job because of a poor decision and losing his wife and daughter as precious minutes tick by, leading to unimaginable catastrophe. This book had me on the edge of my seat, holding my breath in case a wave washed over me.

Rogue Wave had me at the first page. Boyd Morrison doesn't fail in bringing this "edge of your seat" suspense thriller that will keep you spellbound to the very end. You'll be drawn in from page one with his very believable characters that will leave you with a lasting impression of their lives and their determination to live. In Rogue Wave Morrison has done his research and displays a true setting for a very real tsunami disaster that makes you think "it's not if, it's when."

Rogue Wave will bring to mind just how tragic the December 2004 tsunami really was and how it affected everyone across the globe. ( )
