TWO DEAD CLIMATOLOGISTS…
AN INTERNATIONAL CONSPIRACY…
A LOOMING ECOLOGICAL DISASTER…
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 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, he meets French Climatologist Professor Francois Trimaud who is working on a geoengineering project to seed the Arctic Ocean with an experimental substance – the aim, to prevent, or at least slow the Arctic’s melting ice. Spire soon discovers 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 Trimaud on the research vessel, Mercure Blanc on a joint US/French expedition to the Arctic. He soon finds however, that the lives of all on board are in peril as he discovers a plan that threatens to push the Arctic to its tipping point and the Earth to disaster…
Kindle novel TIPPING POINT is a CLIMATE FICTION action-thriller with a perfect blend of action, suspense, adventure and thrills with an environmental/ecological theme.
“Simon Rosser’s scientific and psychological thriller “Tipping Point” is one of the best I have read in the past decade. He has a gift for fluent narrative, realistic characterisation and for creating settings that come vividly to life for the reader. He blends tension and suspense very successfully against the contemporary background of global warming and its sinister implications.” –Author, TV presenter and Priest Lionel Fanthorpe
RABID READER REVIEW – “The world is on the brink of an ecological disaster. Climatologists are found dead, and the investigation into their passing takes one man around the globe and into a conspiracy to melt the ice caps and send the world to its tipping point.
While I think Rosser does his best to write a credibly scientific story, I’d be lying to say that I understood every point. That said, Tipping Point is a freaking fabulous thriller. Despite not getting all of the science, I enjoyed this smart and fast read. Not only is Rosser’s novel a well-written and fun roller coaster ride, but it makes you think about global warming and what it is doing in regard to the future of our planet.”
