An international thriller centered on the events at a Global Atmospheric Research Seminar being held in Canada to determine why the weather has been different. CIA, China, Russia, and others are all involved...
A Tangled Weave.Building contractor James Bolen is found brutally murdered in a posh hotel room in Broadminster, yet Detective Chief Inspector Neil Paget reads more into a crime scene made to look like a local prostitute fatally stabbed the victim. Suspecting the killer had targeted the builder with a vengeance, Paget looks to Bolen's family and business partners for clues, and uncovers a twisted skein of secrets, vendettas, greed and duplicity. Convinced that the missing prostitute - seen fleeing the hotel that night - can identify the killer, Paget and his partner, John Tregalles, scour the missing girl's turf . . . and find yet another body. In the shadows, a killer plots. In her secret hideaway, the terrified young woman waits. Now Paget must race against time - and a killer - to keep her alive.
