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.

Review quote

"Remember the movie "The Day after Tomorrow"? It was a classic big-weather story, full of catastrophic special effects. This novel, written by veteran meteorologist Evans and technological writer Jameson, is exactly the same kind of story, in print form. Just sit back and let the action wash over you. The book is a fast-paced action-adventure that promises a rousing finale and delivers it."--"Booklist"
"Evans, a meteorologist for New York's WABC-TV, and novelist Jameson pit a posse of diverse weatherfolk against Simone, a storm of unheard-of magnitude that's headed straight for Manhattan. The authors meticulously lay their fictional and scientific groundwork. Weather nerds should have a good time from beginning to end."--"Publishers Weekly"
"Take a healthy dose of the paranoid scenarios from "24" and governmental intrigues from "The West Wing," then spike them liberally with the atmospheric minutia that armchair meteorologists know and love. What emerges might be strikingly similar to this clever debut from TV meteorologist Evans, here teaming with romance novelist Jameson to spin a fictional take on long-whispered conspiracy theories about weather as a clandestine weapon."--"Kirkus Reviews"
" "
""Category 7 "is a superb thriller of a disaster untold until now. A rare insight to what might and could very well happen in the future. Suspenseful and shocking...It is truly a fine book to be proud of."--Clive Cussler, "New York"" Times" bestselling author
""Category 7" is a well-researched thriller whose building devastation will keep the reader 'churning' through the pages."--Steve Alten, "New York"" Times" bestselling author of "MEG" and "The Loch"
