No one was aware of the storm's sudden force.
Not the Hurricane Hunter crew trapped in its center.
Not the family marooned on a resort island while searching for their missing teen.
A deadly Category Five hurricane has never hit the Georgia coast in modern times.
Until now.

St. Simons Island, Georgia, has never been hit by a Category 5 hurricane. Until now. No one predicted the storm's sudden force. A crippled Air Force recon plane, trapped in the eye of a violent hurricane. An outspoken tropical weather forecaster, fired from his network TV job before he can issue a warning: the storm is changing course and intensifying.

A desperate family searching for a runaway daughter on Georgia's posh St. Simons Island, cut off from escape as the hurricane roars toward them. A marriage on the rocks; an unrequited sexual attraction; a May-December romance. All will be swept up by the monster storm. Get ready for a white-knuckle adventure.

H.W. "Buzz" Bernard is a retired meteorologist who worked for thirteen years at the Atlanta-based Weather Channel. He considers St. Simons Island his second home.

Our customer reviews

Short chapters that bounce around between story lines could have been chaotic but to me added to the urgency. I felt my heart pound through most of the book although it did start a little slow. This was a two day book....started then put down while working on something else then when I picked it up again I could hardly put it down to pick kids up at school! The main story takes place in hours and you should devote the afternoon to it so you don't have to put it down. Really. I mean it. Disconnect the phone and hang up the Do Not Disturb sign then hang on for a great read.show more
