Summary
WHEN THE ICE MELTS, THE EARTH WILL BURN. Is there life after global warming? The Third Edition (revised and updated) of the chillingly realistic thriller by bestselling Australian author and environmental scientist Ian Irvine. Hercus Barges, a middle-aged failure embittered about ruinous climate change, is planning the ultimate crime: the destruction of western civilisation. And he knows just how to do it. Hercus attempts to blackmail his old friend Ryn Hardey into helping him, for they share a terrible secret from their student days. Ryn can't stop Hercus without implicating himself, but Hercus won't take no for an answer. And Ryn has another urgent problem. His research on Antarctic ice sheet melting is showing alarming results and he can't work out why. Then Hercus' secret gets out, and it's worth a fortune to a doomsday ecological cult. Soon Ryn and his partner Jemma are on the run from ruthless eco-terrorists and professional hitmen. As Ryn struggles to work out what will happen when the ice melts, Jemma tries to uncover Hercus' catastrophic plan - before it's too late.Global warming, unstoppable climate change and environmental terrorism collide in The Last Albatross - Book One in the shatteringly prophetic Human Rites trilogy.Praise for The Last Albatross."The action-packed plot of doomsday cults and planetary collapse isn't far from the truth." The Times (London)"A chilling suspense story set against a backdrop of 21st Century environmental depletion and cultural degeneration. Portrays a frighteningly plausible future." US Library Journal."A well-crafted near-future eco-thriller." Roland Green, US Booklist
