9780091953539: Hurricane Fever

A storm is coming.... Introducing a pulse-pounding technothriller by the New York Times bestselling author of Arctic Rising

Prudence "Roo" Jones never thought he'd have a family to look after—until suddenly he found himself taking care of his orphaned teenage nephew. Roo, a former Caribbean Intelligence operative, spends his downtime on his catamaran dodging the punishing hurricanes that are the new norm in the Caribbean. Roo enjoys the simple calm of his new life—until an unexpected package from a murdered fellow spy shows up. Suddenly Roo is thrown into the center of the biggest storm of all.

Using his wits—and some of the more violent tricks of his former trade—Roo begins to unravel the mystery that got his friend killed. When a polished and cunning woman claiming to be murdered spy's sister appears, the two find themselves caught up in a global conspiracy with a weapon that could change the face of the world forever.

In Hurricane Fever, New York Times bestselling author Tobias Buckell (Arctic Rising, Halo: The Cole Protocol) has crafted a kinetic technothriller perfect for fans of action-packed espionage within a smartly drawn geo-political landscape. Roo is an anti-James Bond for a new generation.

TOBIAS S. BUCKELL is a New York Times bestselling author whose books and his fifty-plus short stories have been translated around the world.

Review:

“If you count on good thrillers to be told in clear, engaging prose and made up of interesting psychology, state-of-the-art research and swiftly moving plots, you couldn't be in a better place.” ―NPR, All Things Considered on Arctic Rising

“An intimate techno-thriller about an ecological showdown in an ice-free Arctic.” ―Publishers Weekly on Arctic Rising

“A gripping and convincing near-future scenario that is composed of many beautifully machined speculative parts, which all cohere into a stirring, verisimilitudinous portrait of our world circa 2050. Additionally, he provides a thriller-style plot worthy of Hitchcock or Neal Stephenson.” ―The Barnes & Noble Review on Arctic Rising

This commercial sci-fi thriller has a premise that should interest ecologically minded Canadians.” ―Winnipeg Free Press on Arctic Rising

“A very good classic spy thriller set in an exotic location. A location that exists only because of the drastic changes in our planet's climate.” ―Denver Post on Arctic Rising
