Boiling Point by K.L. Dionne
Scientists deal with their ethics, morals and personal frailty as they tackle pollution, volcanic eruption and global warming.
This is not a tale for any with a weak heart. Ms. Dionne plunges into contemporary controversy and personal relationships from page one. She uses the issue of global warming and possible scientific solutions to set her stage and then uses an erupting volcano to add drama. It sounds complicated but it works very well. You are draw into the characters concerns and personalities while the action is fueled by the awesome power of a volcanic eruption.
This book forces you to ponder the questions of global warming and the ethics behind individual responsibility for both creating and solving such dramatic issues.
