'In audible shock, boy ducks with missile around (5,4).' The answer must be SONIC BOOM, but can someone parse please? I can see the 'audible shock' bit, but where does missile fit in??

BM = ballistic missile.
O = duck as in cricket and other sports.
Sorry, son = boy, ICBM = intercontinental ballistic missile
Sonic boom - 'son' + 'ICBM' (missile, round) 'oo' (ducks; zeros)
Son (boy) oo (ducks) inside icbm (intercontinental ballistic missile)
Question Author
Thanks all, would never have got ICBM.
Did anyone else like the clue for 19a: Great authors rule, you might say (5,2,4), answer Right as Rain. Took me a while though.

Yes, that was a good one.
