Overview

Antarctica. Deep below the frozen surface of the Ross Sea, a sub-glacial volcano erupts. Above it, a geothermal power plant faces certain destruction. Heading the disaster-relief team is USAF Colonel Tom Reed, who must use every technological tool at his disposal to keep environmental conditions under control. But as the waters heat up, a global disaster of apocalyptic proportions is brewing-a hurricane that could literally tear the earth apart. Between technology and nature, it's war. For Colonel Reed and his crew, it's a suicide mission.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When a volcano deep beneath the surface of Antarctica's Ross Sea erupts, threatening the existence of a geothermal power plant, the combination of forces generated by the catastrophe serves as a breeding ground for a hurricane of such magnitude that it could destroy the delicate climatic balance of the earth. As the likelihood that such a storm will occur grows, Col. Tom Reed heads directly into the storm to fight a battle against nature itself. Focusing more on plot than characterization, Miller's debut novel should appeal to fans of disaster novels and wilderness survival tales. For large sf collections.
