Category Five

Woohoo! A find. And one more for my Leaning Tower of TBR. I stumbled on this one in my wanderings. It's not SciFiRom, per se, but it's close enough for me. (Ya think this might have sometime to do with my involvement in Hurricane Ike relief efforts?)

Here's the blurb:

In the Atlantic Ocean, hurricane Helena is gathering strength, becoming the most powerful storm in recorded history. As Helena bears down on Bermuda, Donovan Nash and other members of the scientific research organization Eco-Watch are called to fly in and extract key government people who have been studying Helena. For Nash, the routine mission turns deadly when an attempt is made on the life of the lead scientist--and a woman from his past--Dr. Lauren McKenna. In a bold attempt to diffuse the power of the hurricane, Eco-Watch is called upon to conduct a final flight above the massive fury of Helena.

And here are the endorsements:

"For those of us with a love/hate relationship with the weather, Category Five is a great book. The last 100 pages were better than most movies. . . I could feel myself drowning."
- Steve Thayer
New York Times best selling author of The Weatherman and The Wheat Field.

"Category Five is a first rate thriller filled with believable characters and lots of inside information! I can't wait for Donlay's next book!"
- Vince Flynn
Author of Executive Power and Term Limits


  1. I had 3 e-mails this morning asking me to get over to the civic center and help out with evacuees... but we moved in June and are now a two-day drive from the civic center. Thoughts are with the people dealing with Ike though.

    Be safe.

  2. Strange isn't - the blurb did not hook me read this! Just shows!
