I read the Dekker trilogy, Black, Red and White. I got hooked on Black, unhooked on Red and swam away on White. The same thing happened with this novel. The book starts out gangbusters with a reasonable and promising premise. The author then moves from one implausible action to another. The trips to the basement of the building left me dumbfounded, especially the whole scenario with the quick drying cement. How stupid!! By the time I get to the climax, the story line has lost all credibility.
There are things to like about this authors writing. I just wish he would not lose me with implausible and inane actions from his lead characters.
This book was a treatise on global warming wrapped around a work of fiction. I have no problem with an author attempting to make a point, but would rather have him do it in a work of non-fiction. This book was far too much information and too little story. The narration was passable, but Wilsons noises were annoying.
