November 2032, Joe Benton has just been elected the 48th president of the United States. Only days after winning, Benton learns from his predecessor that previous estimates regarding the effect of global warming on rising sea levels have been grossly underestimated. With the world frighteningly close to catastrophe, Benton must save the United States from environmental devastation. He resumes secret bilateral negotiations with the Chinese--the world's worst polluter--and as the two superpowers lock horns, the ensuing battle of wits becomes a race against time. With tension escalating on almost every page and building to an astonishing climax, Matthew Glass's visionary and deeply unsettling thriller steers us into the dark heart of political intrigue and a future that is all too believable.

Listener Opinions

    " Very good and forward thinking. I'm sure Palin would suffer a brain cramp if she tried reading this book. "

    " Scary and all-too-believable scenario for the future, but pretty pedestrian writing. "

    " Excellent thriller based on a premise of global warming destroying the low lying lands around the world. The need for international cooperation to end carbon based emissions is highlighted by the struggle between the world's two-largest manufacturers and the failure of the Kyoto accords over the years. "

    " An engaging political thriller for political junkies and self-righteous green types. Very hard to put down. However, the book falls flat to exploit its idea with the most potential: to present the world 20 years from now. Everything is linear, there is no paradigm shift from today's world: there is a G9 (with India), China has the biggest economy and is still planning to occupy Taiwan, Beijing is a 13-hour flight from DC, the makeup of the security council is unchanged.
