Grant Stevens, a mid-level manager for the Bureau of Reclamation, only wanted to build dams. He never imagined he would be swept into a desperate race against an environmental terrorist bent on restoring the Colorado River by blowing up the dams. Left temporarily in charge of the Bureau, Grant must react when the first dam is attacked. He faces the unthinkable task of mitigating the massive flood roaring down the Colorado. The flood will eventually threaten the mighty Hoover Dam, and if Hoover fails, the other dams downstream will fall like dominos.

Working with the FBI, Grant uses his engineering skills, river knowledge, and plenty of gut instinct in an attempt to outmaneuver the terrorist. The chase will lead all the way downstream to the Gulf of California in a cat and mouse game where the stakes are high and the potential for destruction is enormous.

    " Although homophonic and punctuational errors abound, this book is very well-written and a great quick read. I hear a second edition with many corrections is about to come out. There is something about quadrillions of gallons of water escaping their boundaries and causing destruction that appeals to me - haven't we all wished we could see a dam break? Anyway, I would recommend this to anyone who is into novels that don't require a lot of analysis or pondering. Which is me, I guess, at least during semester breaks. "

    " Interesting book. First few chapters slow then had a hard time putting it down. Very educational (hopefully correct) about the Colorado River and dam systems. "

    " Superbly researched, very well written. Takes place in my "backyard" the Colorado River lakes. Gripping and a wonderful education on the building and workings of dams. Couldn't put it down. "

    " Local author Gary Hansen attended our book club in January 2009. He was a delight and it was so fun to be able to ask him questions. "
