Description

Bill Evans and Marianna Jameson first teamed up to write Category 7, vividly portraying the devastating impact of a powerful hurricane on New York City. Now Evans and Jameson return with Frozen Fire, another edge-of-the-seat thriller that mixes atmospheric science with cutting-edge technology. Eager to exploit a potentially lucrative energy source, billionaire Dennis Cavendish has begun to tap the crystalline methane under the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. Eco-terrorism kills his science team and releases gigatons of poisonous methane into the water and atmosphere, causing untold deaths. If the release isn't stopped, all life on Earth will soon disappear. Suspected of the sabotage and marooned far from home, Cavendish's beautiful and brainy security chief, Victoria Clark, along with methane expert Dr. Sam Briscoe and the US government, must find a way to seal the break in the ocean floor and nullify the methane that is already poisoning the planet.

Professional reviews

"Millionaire Dennis Cavendish's plan to mine crystalline methane is being sabotaged by Gaia, an ecoterrorist organization dominated by charismatic Garner Blaylock and his female devotees. This story may appeal to fans of Michael Crichton or Clive Cussler, but even though the science is credible, the characters and the plot are not. It's easy to believe that mining will jeopardize the environment, but the idea that Gaia's sabotage also involves mass destruction of life makes little sense. The listener has no sympathy for either Cavendish or Blaylock--or the numerous one-dimensional figures that surround them--despite Peter Larkin's valiant attempts to bring them to life. Also, there are noticeable inconsistencies; for example, the dialect of Cyril, a computer geek, changes halfway through, and neither version matches that actually described. C.A.T.
