"When the Arctic ice pack was first measured in the 1950s, it averaged thirty feet thick in midwinter. By the end of the century it was down to fifteen. One August the ice broke. The next year the breakup started in July. The third year it began in May. That was last year. It's a muggy summer in Washington, D.C., as Senate environmental staffer Charlie Quibler and his scientist wife Anna, work to call attention to the growing crisis of global warming. But as these everyday heroes fight to align the awsome forces of nature with the extraordinary march of technology, fate puts an unusual twist on their efforts--one that will place them at the heart of an unavoidable storm."--Page 4 of cover.

While not an uninteresting book, its difficult to describe it as a "thriller" since most of the plot focuses on the personal struggles of the characters. It's worth reading but, with the exception of the final few chapters, its lacks the excitement and tension that many readers may expect from books in this genre.

Read the series in order... VIRL has all the books so just get them held in order. Anarctica, 40 Signs Of Rain, 50 Degrees Below, and 60 Days And Counting.

Real people, real science, real government, all rolled up into a thriller ride that will add a dimension to the way you consider climate change.

Together, first rate KSR.

Great fictional real possibility of what may happen if Global Climate Change is allowed to continue with no actions made by individuals and our government.

Also a really fun read!
