This was sadly a DNF for me; I hate to do that with an ARC, but I was totally unable to connect with the writing style.

My thanks to the publisher for sending a review copy. I hope to try to pick it up again at some point and perhaps I'll be in a better mindset for this book then.

3.5 stars.

As an environmental health science student, I found the concept to be very interesting but after reading this, I found the execution to be a bit disappointing.

This book is dense in information about global warming, politics, law and police work even but because there's many perspective, the info tends to be repeated many times. In my opinion, it was honestly redundant. I think the whole thing could have been 300 pages instead of 500.

Another thing that really bothered me was the writing

An excellent capture of facts wrapped in an interesting story. I found it compelling as someone who has just under the surface level knowledge of environmental issues and also loves to read a good mystery. I give it 4 stars because it is still a bit clunky transitioning between the facts and fiction. I mainly love it because it is so very important. It was just hard to keep reading when it got dry.

A smart, original thriller with real, compelling characters and chilling, devastatingly plausible plot..... I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. !
Highly Recommended !!

This is very good. It's long, but covers a lot of ground, including science, politics, and more. With an engaging plot and interesting characters, this kept me engaged. The author is obviously talented, and I look forward to his next book. Recommended.

Thanks very much for ARC for review!!
