The catastrophic power of a giant hurricane can raise coastal waves thirty feet high and blow through houses at devastating speeds. For TV meteorologist Perry Stuart, however, such predictions are generally hypothetical, as he chiefly predicts periods of English drizzle, with bursts of heavier rain and sunshine to follow. Stuart's profound weather knowledge and accuracy have given him high status among forecasters, but no physical baptism by storm. Not, that is, until a fellow forecaster offers him a Caribbean hurricane-chasing ride in a small airplane as a holiday diversion. But a frightening accident teaches Stuart more secrets than wind speeds, and back home in England he faces threats and danger as deadly as anything nature can evolve. Dick Francis "has simply never failed. Every one of his opening sentences pulls the reader in, and doesn't let go until the last, perfect word," according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

    " I love Dick Francis novels. They are a quick read, usually predictable, but the good guys always win. I love that. And they always get the girl in the end! "

    " ~Only the 2nd time I've read this one - I couldn't remember anything about it. Not one of his better efforts - this time combining meteorology and racing. "

    " Pretty good, they all follow the same theme , good guy does good, bad guy does not llike it good guy gets beaten up but good wins out in the end. A good, although not honest conclusion..... "

    " The first time I read this book, I for some reason didn't like it as well as Dick Francis' other books. With this second reading, I'm not sure why. It's still not my favorite Francis but, it still a great book with a good main character and interesting knowledge about Hurricanes and weather. "
