"[A] cautionary but hopeful thriller....Bova adds modern twists and a genuinely surprising ending to the age-old clash between oblivious scientists and worldly schemers." ( Publishers Weekly)
"The author's excellence at combining hard science with believable characters and an attention-grabbing plot makes him one of our most accessible and entertaining storytellers." ( Library Journal)

There are two parts to this book: One is the mystery about who murdered the scientist working on hydrogen fuel cells. The second is actually broken up and randomly scattered throughout the mystery, namely, jarring, unexpected chapters of boring lectures about global warming. The real mystery here is why the author created such an ungainly juxtaposition. Nothing I read previous to downloading it warned me, but now I've warned you.

Uncharacteristic for Bova
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
People that like corny.
What could Ben Bova have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Not make it corny, I know he can, because I have read a lot of his books. Either that or made a few small changes and turned it into a comedy. But then I wouldn't have purchased it.
Which character – as performed by Stefan Rudnicki and Kathe Mazure – was your favorite?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Green Trap?
Too many, but that would have left a short story instead of a novel, probably an improvement.
Any additional comments?
Just really disappointed.
