Hurricane Mabel is about to change course and cause untold havoc on the restless Caribbean island of San Fernandez. David Wyatt is the lone scientist who believes the great storm will move away from its previously predicted safe path, and he sets out to try and convince the sceptical authorities of what might happen.
San Fernandez is a far from peaceful island and there are military factions at work , visciously struggling for power. And acting as a thorne in the flesh to both is the American military airbase.
Will anyone believe Wyatt's tale of doom? Will Wyatt survive the bureaucracy and the attempts on his life? Which side will win out victorious? Or might Hurricane Mabel wipe the game board clean and settle old scores once and for all?
Marvel at the author's in-depth knowledge of his subject and his ability to wind the tension up until it is about to burst before playing his final cards. Another masterpiece.
