No one was aware of the storm's sudden force. Not the Hurricane Hunter crew trapped in its center. Not the family marooned on a resort island while searching for their missing teen. A deadly Category Five hurricane has never hit the Georgia coast in modern times.
No one predicted the storm's sudden force. A crippled Air Force recon plane, trapped in the eye of a violent hurricane. An outspoken tropical weather forecaster, fired from his network TV job before he can issue a warning: the storm is changing course and intensifying. A desperate family searching for a runaway daughter on Georgia's posh St. Simons Island, cut off from escape as the hurricane roars toward them. A marriage on the rocks; an unrequited sexual attraction; a May-December romance. All will be swept up by the monster storm. Get ready for a white-knuckle adventure.

"You can't put it down." (Jack Williams, science author and founding weather editor at USA Today)
"A one-sitting, white-knuckle read." (Vicki Hinze, award-winning author of Deadly Ties)
"An angry hurricane collides with the frailty and heroism of human nature...exciting and emotional." (Michael Buchanan, co-author and screenwriter of The Fat Boy Chronicles and Micah's Child)
Action surrounding the Hurricane Hunter aircraft was riveting, palpable. Good descriptions of St. Simons Island also. Author may need to flesh out his characters a bit more. But all in all a very entertaining listen. I intend to watch for his next 2 novels Dr. Bernard is working on.
I would have worked less with the meteorological data explanations and built more backstory into the characters.
Enjoyed it. Good characterizations.
I don't think a sequel is appropriate. Author tied up most of the character loose ends fairly well at the end of the work.
I listen to books while I stitch. Any book I listen to needs to be exciting and after a half an hour I need to be involved. This story was great. Characters well developed, plot tight, an area I knew something about but the author was very knowledgeable in. All in all exactly what I like in a book.
The narration was HORRIBLE. Poor quality, clicks, pauses, throat clearing, different volumes. All the things I hate in a narration. The readers fault????? The producers fault???? It was B. A. D. Yet the story was interesting so I listened all the way to the end. You will need to choose. I purchased a second book by Buzz Bernard but I made sure it wasn't the same narrator!
