Publisher's Summary

After years of drought have given the United States a terrible thirst and turned water into blue gold, powerful magnate William Greele draws up secret plans to pipe water down from Quebec. But when conservationist Malcolm Macpherson finds out, he enlists the aid of Claire Davidowicz of eco-justice USA to stop it. With the help of a feisty British journalist, three rogue policemen, a reluctant eco-terrorist, and a maverick governor, they embark on a deadly race to save the planet and their own lives before it's too late.

Critic Reviews

"A spectacular eco-thriller." (Orion)
"Burstyn tenders a sharp tale of hydrological reengineering, the theft of water, in a prescient and illuminating thriller. A flustering cautionary tale...rolling with intrigue and suspense." (Kirkus Review
"A smart, sexy, witty, and hard-hitting eco thriller....Alluring characters and a careening plot provide shivery pleasures as Burstyn orchestrates a galvanizing introduction to a looming global crisis." (Booklist)
