Author: David Poyer
 
Dr. Jack Scales, hotshot neurosurgeon, is at the peak of his career?and his family?s showing the strain. His wife, Arlen, is having an affair; Ric, their twenty-year-old son, hears voices urging him to violence; and teenaged Haley, a champion swimmer, would rather be anywhere than on a cruise to Bermuda in her family?s luxurious new sailboat?The Scales?s bon voyage party ends in the death of a stowaway, a lightning storm that nearly sinks them, and one of Ric?s worst schizophrenic episodes yet. Still, battling the elements together, the family forges a fragile unity?until a man adrift on a plastic beach float hundreds of miles from land springs a trap. Held hostage by smugglers who?ll stop at nothing to get their cargo to port, the family faces the ultimate question: How much would each one be willing to sacrifice in order to buy the others a chance to survive?  « less

It's a pleasant summer afternoon in the Gulf Stream, twenty-five miles off Hutchinson Island on Florida's east coast. NOAA scientist Dr. Eve Larsen is about to prove she has the answers to global warming, and the solution to stopping killer storms across the planet.  She is a part of a multi-trillion dollar, multinational project to farm clean, endless energy from the oceans' currents--and alter the planet's weather for the better. At that moment, contract killer Brian DeCamp walks into the Hutchinson Island Nuclear Power Station, aiming to cause a meltdown so catastrophic it'll make Chernobyl seem like nothing.  Security cam footage leads to an intervention by legendary former CIA director Kirk McGarvey, who manages to thwart the catastrophe...but the failed sabotage sets off a chain of events more terrifying than McGarvey could ever have imagined.  With Big Oil ruthlessly hunting for profit after the BP disaster in the Gulf, the fate of the world hangs in the balance

 

I have Ghosting on my bookshelf.  Louisana Blue is an unpostable.  I will send it as a freebie when ordering Ghosting.
