Publisher's Summary

The FBI doesn't believe it. The governor wants the problem to disappear. But Agent Judy Maddox knows the threat is real: an extreme group of ecoterrorists has the means and the know-how to set off a massive earthquake of epic proportions. For California, time is running out.

Now Maddox is scrambling to hunt down a petty criminal turned cult leader turned homicidal mastermind. Because she knows that the dying has already begun. And things will only get worse when the earth violently shifts, bolts, and shakes down to its very core.

Critic Reviews

"Follett ratchets up the Richter scale of suspense." (USA Today)
"Riveting...taut plotting, tense action, skillful writing, and myriad unexpected twists make this one utterly unputdownable." (Booklist)
"Follett does a first-class job of creating a fictional universe and then inviting the reader to live in it. His substantial research pays off as well, because he writes about the world of earthquakes with the same authority he displays when discussing the technical aspects of the FBI's inner workings." (Newark Star-Ledger)

nothing like Follett

this was a suspense filled delightful story. however it was almost nothing like any Follett book I have read in the past to the degree that I would not have thought he wrote it.

Older book with newer meanings

Follett is one of my favorite authors. in this book he shows how out of hand dissention can get and how a normal person can get caught up in the plan of a crazy person

don't bother

Not like his previous books . Very simple, two platform, unrealistic, over the top imaginative story. Crazy hippy guy tries to safe his remote dream commune life and blows up parts of north CA when he is realizes that the authorities resit his threat . Very naive story.
