Description

When young Irish/American climber, Liam Doyle, sets out to locate the body of his father, high in the death zone of the 'savage mountain' K2, he is confronted by a series of inexplicable events. Deeply troubled, he enlists the help of two friends, an ex-special forces buddy and a Washington editor. Gradually and circuitously they become aware of a globally influential group of scientists and billionaires, set on a course that has the potential to wreak atmospheric havoc on a planetary scale. Against the background of a critical US election race, escalating violence throughout Asia and hostility from much of the world's media, they must risk their lives to expose the activities of this corrupt cartel. No Killing Sky is the ultimate global thriller for our times -12 countries, from the Himalayas to the Arctic, Washington to Kazakhstan - and a race against time to prevent a catastrophe that could soon claim the lives of more than a billion people.

Review quote

"The novel No Killing Sky is an eco- thriller for our times. Published by New Internationalist, the novel clearly has a critical message about the imminent dangers and possibilities brought about by the unmitigated ravages of climate change. Non-fiction writers such as Naomi Klein, Clive Hamilton, and Arundhati Roy give us analyses of the interrelationships between politics, environmental justice, climate science and a myriad of social concerns; McCourt has taken up the serious issue of climate change and delivered a compelling story" -Customer review by Jacqueline Widin.
