Publisher's Summary

In 1903, the Arctic's fabled Northwest Passage is navigated for the first time. In 2012, an eminent climatologist is found dead in his London apartment. For Robert Spire, an environmental lawyer, what seems like a standard executor's appointment in his client's will turns out to be anything but, as he is thrust into an international conspiracy involving a plan to push the Arctic to its tipping point and the world to disaster....
Tipping Point is a fast-paced, climate-fiction action thriller with a perfect blend of action, suspense, adventure, and thrills to keep you listening until the very end.
Two dead climatologists...
When eminent climatologist Dr. Dale Stanton - in the process of studying the Atlantic Ocean's thermohaline circulation - is found dead in his London apartment, environmental lawyer Robert Spire is given the task of administering a large legacy left to global warming organizations. The job is straightforward until a second climatologist, Dr. Jack Bannister, drops dead on the other side of the Atlantic.
An international conspiracy...
Spire's client - suspicious of her son's death - asks him to travel to San Francisco to investigate Dr. Jack Bannister's death. While there, he meets French climatology professor Francois Trimaud, who is working on a geoengineering project to seed the Arctic Ocean with an experimental substance - the aim to prevent, or at least slow, the Arctic's melting ice. Spire soon discovers that someone has other plans for the region and wants the climatologists dead at all costs.
A looming ecological disaster...
As evidence of increased glacial melt in Greenland and reduction in the Arctic ice mounts, Spire becomes determined to join Trimaud on the research vessel Mercure Blanc, on a joint US/French expedition to the Arctic. He soon finds, however, that the lives of all onboard are in peril....

I really liked this audible book.

I listened to this book on audio.
I loved the science which turned out to be a little more scary than the Russian hired killer.
I love how the climate change served as a catalyst for the plot line.
The characters, our main protagonist specifically were like able.

I cannot honestly say that the book gripped me so much that I could not put it down. However every time I had time to listen to more of it I was delighted to do so.

High Octane Edge of Seat Thriller

This was a fast paced high octane edge of one's seat thriller. It was fun and exciting. If you like action espionage genres such as James Bond or Mission Impossible and conspiracies then this book is for you.

I sort of thought the hero acted really dumb at times, as if he had a death wish, however the book was so much fun and exciting I overlooked this flaw. The hero has more lives than a cat as well as a lot of dumb luck combined with his McGiver skills and creativity therefore he keeps getting out of deathly traps and jams. The hero Robert Spire is an environmental lawyer with survival skills that could shame a navy SEAL.

The narration and performance was fantastic and helped make the book. One minor flaw regarding the narration is that I felt the narrator didn't get the American accent quite right for the American characters. However considering the multinational cast of characters and all the different accents that were used for the characters, I didn't see this small flaw as being important. Overall I thought the narrator was very talented.

I feel this book would make a great action packed movie.
