From the Book Jacket:
In the new decade, the world gathers in Stockholm for a controversial climate forum. The stakes are high, as violent and unpredictable storms increasingly plague the earth and sea levels encroach on coastal shorelines. Nicole Hunter, head of the richly endowed Everson Foundation, leads the charge to invest in promising research that will hopefully impede environmental devastation. But her contentious stance has been questioned by others, and now her career and her life are both in jeopardy. Meanwhile, unseen forces assemble to sabotage any breakthrough that could challenge existing global energy markets. Oliver Odin, a mysterious international agent, is sent by the Security Alliance to investigate ominous threats intercepted by intelligence sources. The evidence leads him to the beautiful, strong-willed Nicole and the brainy scientists attending the forum. But when scientists on the verge of a promising discovery are gunned down at a reception held by a United States senator, it becomes apparent that powerful forces will stop at nothing to prevent the world from being saved. As a few brave souls attempt to rescue the planet from environmental calamity, they soon realize that their mission comes with a price-and some will pay with their lives.
Finishing a book in 3 days with my busy life is quite a feet, and only happens if I’m really ‘into’ a book. This book is just that. As someone who is quite concerned with the status of earth and what we as its inhabitants can do to make it better this book was a perfect fit.I was concerned when I started if this book would cross the line from fiction to ‘preachy’ but I’m happy to say it did not! Its a great book of mystery, murder and spies all of my favorite things with a eco-twist. In my opinion the perfect combination.
The short chapters made it easy to read during my busy schedule and I was hooked by the end of the 3rd short chapter. It takes a little while to intertwine all of the characters you are initially introduced to but that all leads to the intrigue.
Pick it up you will enjoy it!
I was provided a copy of this book to read and review but these opinions are all my own.
