Wow!

by tjdickey (WorldCat user published 2007-10-17) Excellent Permalink
Michael Crighton is at his best when taking on science that is in the headlines. This time, he weaves a fast-paced thriller around global climate change. As an added bonus, he includes a 20-30 page annotated bibliography for those new to the environmental topic.
