Tommy Anderson is known in the trade as Tommy Boom. It's a bit of a misnomer, since this ace explosives man uses less explosives than most to do his job of bringing down huge buildings quickly. By chance, Tommy gets the Chinese tongs after him, and if he gives in to them, the Japanese Triads will be on him.
Tommy reverts to his Special Ops training, to protect himself and his new love, the ever lucky Rita, that is on a Vegas lucky streak the likes of which have never been seen before. Rita reels in the cash and prizes, while Tommy tries to finish up one last demolitions job. The delays, and things he finds in the old hotel are what gets him in trouble with the Tongs, since he happened to wander into the wrong pawn shop to get his find appraised. Doing his work with people out to gun him down isn't easy, but he turns the tables, and with a little help, takes the fight to them. Action, romance and adventure a plenty in this flight of fancy from the world famous authors David and Linda Broughton.
