An energy boycott strangles the West, but a top- secret project might free the nation from its foreign-oil addiction. Methane hydrate--'burning ice'--buried beneath the ocean can provide an endless supply of natural gas. But the miracle fuel is locked away in unstable formations, where the danger of underwater landslides can create catastrophic tsunamis. A former teenage Palestinian terrorist--now a world-renowned geophysicist--is blackmailed to scuttle the project and cause a killer wave on the American East Coast. Meanwhile, a relentless energy company pursues the project despite the risks, an ambitious corporation lawyer ponders whether the project is a cure or catastrophe, the president contemplates a possible war for energy, and consumer and environmental advocates selfishly promote their own agendas. The Devil's Breath is a techno-thriller that will change how you think about U.S. dependence on foreign oil and gas and the future of energy supplies.
