Publishers Weekly, 2011-06-20 Evans and Jameson's engrossing third weather thriller (after Frozen Fire) features cutting-edge science and a globe-threatening attack that reads like tomorrow's terrifying headlines. Greg Simpson heads the Terrestrial Energy Southern Land Array (TESLA), a weather station in East Antarctica, where a detachment of dedicated scientists not only monitor global atmospheric conditions but actively create weather for their parent company, Flint AgroChemical, and, covertly, for the U.S. military. Because Greg has become somewhat erratic, Flint has decided to replace him with brilliant researcher Tess Beauchamp, a decision that sends Greg completely off the deep end, causing him to initiate a sequence of programmed weather disasters that leave millions dead. Tess and her stalwart crew of scientists, cut off from all help, must figure out how to disable Greg's plan if they're to save the planet. Weather wonks will be in heaven. (Aug.)
