Tipping Point: Action-Adventure Thriller Publisher's Summary

In 1903, the Arctic's fabled Northwest Passage is navigated for the first time. In 2012, an eminent climatologist is found dead in his London apartment. For Robert Spire, an environmental lawyer, what seems like a standard executor's appointment in his client's will turns out to be anything but, as he is thrust into an international conspiracy involving a plan to push the Arctic to its tipping point and the world to disaster....

Tipping Point is a fast-paced, climate-fiction action thriller with a perfect blend of action, suspense, adventure, and thrills to keep you listening until the very end.

Two dead climatologists...

When eminent climatologist Dr. Dale Stanton - in the process of studying the Atlantic Ocean's thermohaline circulation - is found dead in his London apartment, environmental lawyer Robert Spire is given the task of administering a large legacy left to global warming organizations. The job is straightforward until a second climatologist, Dr. Jack Bannister, drops dead on the other side of the Atlantic.

An international conspiracy...

Spire's client - suspicious of her son's death - asks him to travel to San Francisco to investigate Dr. Jack Bannister's death. While there, he meets French climatology professor Francois Trimaud, who is working on a geoengineering project to seed the Arctic Ocean with an experimental substance - the aim to prevent, or at least slow, the Arctic's melting ice. Spire soon discovers that someone has other plans for the region and wants the climatologists dead at all costs.

A looming ecological disaster...

As evidence of increased glacial melt in Greenland and reduction in the Arctic ice mounts, Spire becomes determined to join Trimaud on the research vessel Mercure Blanc, on a joint US/French expedition to the Arctic. He soon finds, however, that the lives of all onboard are in peril....

    A mysterious structure is found buried beneath the Antarctic ice. Undiscovered for decades...it should have remained that way. A team of climatologists are sent on a routine expedition to Antarctica to investigate a rapidly melting glacier, where they make a startling discovery. In Europe, a secret Nazi document surfaces which points to a historical government secret, and which appears connected to events unfolding in Antarctica. Robert Spire, tasked to hunt for the secret document, soon becomes the hunted, as he is chased across Europe.
