Two microbiologists monitor the effects of global warming in the shadow of the long-dormant volcano.
A celebrity scientist and his film crew arrive at the caldera to capture Chaitén’s spectacular scenery for a television audience.

Soon, their destinies will converge. For the Earth has become a pawn in the biggest gamble ever played with humanity’s future…
And Chaitén is about to blow.
“Dionne hits her stride with this heart-thumping, timely thriller, one that rings with surreal authenticity. All of the right elements — action, suspense, secrets, conspiracies — meld together, the plot built skillfully, like a master craftsman, one layer at a time. Put simply, it’s a non-stop delight of a read.” — New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry
“Fans of the late Michael Crichton will enjoy Dionne’s exciting second ecothriller . . . Crisp writing keeps the pace fast, and the tight interweaving of story lines bodes well for this author’s future efforts.” — Publishers Weekly
“Dionne’s follow-up to Freezing Point delivers more science thrills. The narrative flows well, the characters are sharp and the setting is explosive. While the chaos compels the reader to turn pages, the science reinforces a scenario that is all too real and terrifying. Readers will seek out the previous book and anxiously await the next one.” — RT Book Reviews – 4 stars
