A young girl, Andrea Jamieson, loses her father, who is trying to rescue a neighbor during a hurricane. She grows up to become a hurricane ''hunter'' and, through her own efforts and those of her husband and colleagues, accidentally creates the largest hurricane in history. Then it disappears in the Devil's Triangle. So does her husband, flying over the storm to drop Silver Iodide crystals into the eye.
Then, 30 years later, the storm - and the plane - are back. Andrea has a new weapon, a series of pumps, that might stop or divert the storm, but there's little time, and all she really wants to do is track that plane that's been gone so long - and reunite with her long-lost husband.
"Tugging heartstrings with the expertise of a master puppeteer, Wilson, a former naval technician, adds plenty of authentic touches but never overwhelms the reader with details. The clean prose, romance and fantasy elements, heart-pounding scenes of man against nature, and topical currency (thankfully not overplayed) will appeal to a wide variety of readers."

A stormy proposition
No, unless they were really into obtuse hurricane stories. This is book is at the same time interesting, and a mess. I wouldn't put my friends through this.
Yes, although they narrator did not manage to voice men very well, particularly in the latter chapters. I do understand that cross gender emulation is not easy, and she did try, but was inconsistent and , for whatever reason, got off track at the end.
Not really. I have visited the areas covered in the book however, so it did bring back memories of some of those trips.
Where to start?
interesting proposition, clearly with some detailed research and a topic that is not always covered.
so many loose, or even totally not discussed ends, that it felt incomplete or a mash up of a number of story ideas just randomly thrown together.
Oh, we can lose the black coffee references.
I would want some better research done into actual offshore towing as well, which clearly was not done here.
I was provided this book by the author on Audioblast in exchange for this independent review. Clearly they are getting it. I would say worth the credit IF you are interested in hurricanes.
