Overview

In New York City, it’s October but it feels more like an August heat wave and ex-Marine Max LaFollette needs a job. During an interview at Imperium Solutions, a powerful, enigmatic oil company, he inadvertently discloses information that provokes a chain reaction. When it’s over, Imperium’s thugs have ransacked his home, his wife is dead and the NYPD suspects him. It’s the best day Max is going to have for a long time.

Forced to flee for his life, Max escapes into the tunnels under Manhattan where he’s taken in by a homeless community. Their charismatic leader holds the secret to Max’s plight and Imperium’s hegemonic agenda.

In a California earthquake lab, Dr. Rebecca Hausman investigates unusual seismic activity in the Pacific and tries to account for the increasing worldwide weather anomalies and natural disasters. She discovers peculiar but regular wave patterns deep in the Earth that suggest an alteration of continental drift.

Catastrophic earthquakes, killer tsunamis, record hurricanes, scorching heat waves and melting polar ice caps make it clear to Max and his allies that Imperium’s reckless drilling is changing the planet’s balance but the US Government isn’t listening. Imperium’s evil plan is so fantastic and well disguised and their influence is so widespread that no one in authority will act.

With the geologic clock ticking toward global catastrophe, Max becomes the unwitting obstacle to Imperium’s success...if he's not too late.

What a read! I was engaged from the moment I read the first chapter. Loved it. I will now be able to get off at my appropriate stop instead of riding past it every night, because I was so engrossed in the book.

A delightful thriller for all occasions. It starts with seemingly unrelated yarns of colorful episodes, which are then woven into a main event of actions and reactions by a hilarious assortment of characters: assassins, spies, agents from NYPD, CIA and FBI, tunnel dwellers under the New York Subway, scheming corporate executives, scientists and soldiers. 'The quick and steady pace of storytelling shows the author is well versed in the various fields of policing and legal procedures, counterintelligence, military strategy and tactics, seismology, and most importantly love and trust between friends.

This is a really good thriller. It's a ticking bomb type plot with the future of the planet in doubt. Very unusual locations and colorful characters make this a fast read. If you don't like oil companies this book will make you dislike them more,

This book is incredible. It has a fantastic, exciting plot that left me hanging onto every page. It was exhilerating and a total rush just reading it. Mr. Mark did an incredible job of puting the reader in the story face to face with the characters. I cannot wait for his next novel.
