I read this book because the person who gave it to me made me promise to read it. Well, I did, and it's pretty awful. Not only does the book attempt to conflate (erroneous) claims of man-made global warming with an environmental catastrophe caused by terrorists with a bunch of suitcase nuclear devices, the writing style has little resemblance to a real novel. If you're used to good writing by Crais, Child, MacDonald, etc., you'll wonder how this one made it past the editors. Lots more to say, but this is the worst interface for doing so. Bottom line: Don't bother.
