Description

Kate Sherman is a brilliant young meteorologist who can't understand how she recently missed predicting three major storms--storms that cut into the profits of her employer, Coriolis Industries. Afraid of being fired, Kate throws herself into an analysis of the strange storms--and headlong into the path of a secret plot that may cost her her life!""Hurricane Simone is a Category 7--the biggest, strongest storm in recorded history--and she's clawing her way up the East Coast. When she hits New York City, skyscrapers will fall. Subways and tunnels will flood. Lower Manhattan and much of Queens and Brooklyn will disappear under more than thirty feet of water. Thousands, if not millions, will die. Created by secret, cutting-edge weather science, Simone is not just an unnatural disaster--she's a weapon. Kate and CIA weatherman Jake Baxter must figure out how to stop the storm before she flattens New York City . . . and identify Simone's master before he has them both killed.show more

Review quote

Praise for "Category 7" "Take a healthy dose of the paranoid scenarios from "24" and governmental intrigues from "The West Wing," then spike them liberally with the atmospheric minutiae that armchair meteorologists know and love. Fast-paced storytelling . . . . Satisfying."--"Kirkus Reviews""Kate Sherman, a plucky meteorologist, and Jake Baxter, a CIA weatherman, are the last line of defense between New York City and a Category 7 hurricane, which was created by a top-secret weather-control weapon. A fast-paced action-adventure that promises a rousing finale and delivers it."--"Booklist ""What would happen if a massive super-storm hit New York City? And what if the storm's ferocity were enhanced by human activity? In the authors' apocalyptic scenario, much of New York would be destroyed. Buildings would topple, tunnels would flood, and the death toll would be enormous."--"Library Journal""A hurricane is not only possible in New York City, it's happened before. But because no one alive today has been through that experience, people are not aware of the devastating potential. But Bill Evans knows New York, New York weather, and New York weather history."--Bryan Norcross, CBS News Hurricane Analyst"A well-researched thriller whose building devastation will keep the reader 'churning' through the pages."--" New York Times" bestselling author Steve Alten"""A most creative piece of fiction. Author Bill Evans certainly knows what he is talking about. "Category 7" will have you thinking, the next time you hear the pounding rains and the whipping of the wind. You might be more in awe of nature after reading this book."--"Shelf Life"show more
