"The Morning Show"'s star meteorologist, Jenna Withers, receives a controversial appointment to a White House task force on geoengineering--and is plunged into a high-stakes collision between extreme weather and international politics, where the fate of the whole world hangs in the balance.
Covert sources inform Jenna that Muslim extremists in the Maldives are planning a suicide bombing that could lead to the sudden and disastrous cooling of the planet. The network dispatches the aging, alcoholic, yet renowned journalist Rick Birk to report on the terrorists. To his--and everyone else's--shock, Birk becomes a central figure in the unfolding drama.
In North Korea, the Supreme Leader seizes on the turmoil in the Maldives and the international panic to threaten his own geo-engineering disaster, one aimed at the skies.
Jenna Withers is determined to publicly reveal the dark truths only she knows, to prevent a showdown that might destroy the planet, but powerful forces are intent on stopping her.
From the swiftly-disappearing shores of the Indian Ocean to drought-parched upstate New York, from what looks like a small-town religious murder to the threat of missile attacks, "Blackmail Earth" is a rollercoaster of thrills and excitement!

--Sam ChampionPraise for the novels of Bill Evans

--Regis Philbin on "Dry Ice" (co-written with Marianna Jameson)
"A superb thriller of a disaster untold until now. Suspenseful and shocking."

--"Booklist "on "Category 7
""No one knows bad weather better than Bill Evans. His expert's touch makes "Dry Ice" compelling reading."
--George Stephanopoulos
"Ever wonder the result if Harold Robbins had written a disaster novel? The science makes sense, the gore factor is off the chart, and the villains are high-end despicable, so count on this one for a no-calorie summer snack--perfect for lazing on the beach or passing time in the airport."
--"Booklist" on "Frozen Fire" (co-written with Marianna Jameson)
"From one weatherman to another--"Bravo "Bill! "Dry Ice" combines science fiction, science fact, and great writing to create a weather-thriller. Don't believe it? Just read a chapter and try to put in down!"
