The apocalyptic catastrophes of The Day After Tomorrow meet the watery menace of The Abyss in this gripping, scientifically realistic, and utterly imaginative thriller.
Deep in Western Australia where the Aboriginals used to milk the trees, a planet-sized plot is taking shape. Some green freaks pick up the scent: a pommie poseur; a brain-fried Vietnam vet; Aboriginals who have lost their land...not much against a conspiracy that controls society. But EcoAction isn't in society: it just lives in the same place, along with the cockroaches.
If you're facing the richest and most disgusting scheme in history, you have to do more than stick up two fingers and say 'peace'.
With her six-year-old daughter, Suzie, she flees across the Canadian border to begin a perilous journey to Berlin and then Thailand in search of the only man who can keep them alive: Harry Hook, a disgraced ex–CIA case officer living rough in the wilderness, battling the bottle and ghosts from his past.
Can Hook conjure an inspired but desperate plan that will save Kate and Suzie and bring him the redemption he yearns for?
