TWO DEAD CLIMATOLOGISTS…
When eminent climatologist Dr Dale Stanton – in the process of studying the Atlantic Ocean’s Thermohaline Circulation – is found dead in his London apartment, environmental lawyer, Robert Spire, is given the task to administer a large legacy left by him to global warming organisations. The job should have been straightforward, until a second climatologist, Dr Jack Bannister drops dead on the other side of the Atlantic.
AN INTERNATIONAL CONSPIRACY
Spire’s client – suspicious of her son’s death – asks him to travel to San Francisco to investigate Dr Jack Bannister’s death. Whilst there, Spire learns of a plan to seed the Arctic Ocean with an experimental substance – the aim, to prevent, or at least slow the Arctic’s melting ice. A female Russian assassin is tracking Spire’s every move however, leaving no doubt that someone has other plans for the region, and wants the climatologists dead at all costs.
A LOOMING ECOLOGICAL DISASTER
As evidence of increased glacial melt in Greenland and reduction in the Arctic ice mounts, Spire becomes determined to join the joint US/French expedition to seed the Arctic. He soon finds however, that the lives of all on board are in peril as he uncovers a conspiracy which threatens to push the Arctic to its tipping point and the Earth to disaster…
