    Grant Stevens, a mid-level manager for the Bureau of Reclamation, only wanted to build dams. He never imagined he would be swept into a desperate race against an environmental terrorist bent on restoring the Colorado River by blowing up the dams. Left temporarily in charge of the Bureau, Grant must react when the first dam is attacked. He faces the unthinkable task of mitigating the massive flood roaring down the Colorado.

    Story

    As a long-time Lake Powell fan, and an audio book afficionado, I really enjoyed listening to this book on my daily commute and while exercising.

    I learned about the Colorado river system and the book made me think more about the ongoing challenge of water consumption and usage in our desert climates. I love exploring Lake Powell and the majestic canyons along the waterway. So, I'm glad the book is fictional - not historical. But, I also hope that politicians and citizens can recognize the need for conservation of our water resources and far-sighted policies about their use.

    The characters were interesting and the story was gripping. It was one of those books that caused me to look forward to my commute and exercise time so that I could rejoin the action...
