Solstice

David Hewson: Solstice (USA 2001)

From the Publisher:
As the millennium approaches, the climate on Earth is getting progressively hotter, a phenomenon which makes scientists and others extremely nervous. Unease quickly turns to panic when Air Force One is successfully downed, key communications networks are disrupted, and the world's financial institutions are pushed to the brink of collapse. CIA science chief Helen Wagner and Michael Lieberman, a brilliant designer of a giant space-based solar array, must contend with techno-savvy activists who plan to use the array to cut modern society off at the knees... and start civilization over from scratch.

David Hewson: Solstice. Warner Books, ISBN: 0446608637 (June, 2001), 530 p., $7.50.

Solstice

David Hewson: Solstice (UK 1999)

From the Publisher:
The ultimate novel of the Millennium from the most exciting new thriller writer on our list. At an observatory on the island of Mallorca, a disparate group of scientists and military types is gathered. None of them seems very happy to be joined by Michael Lieberman, known throughout the scientific community as a wild card, but Lieberman is also the acknowledged world authority on sun spots and this project is clearly something to do with the extraordinary pattern of solar events that is causing electro-magnetic mayhem across an ever-more panicky globe. The pattern should peak at the summer solstice... in four days time. As the markets crash, as aircraft fall from the sky, something is happening here that not even Lieberman's brilliance can predict -- not least because he is not being told the full story about an experiment that the government has lost control of, or the activities of a millennial cult run by his beautiful and brilliant former lover.

David Hewson: Solstice. HarperCollins, ISBN: 0006510086 (August, 1999), 488 p., £6.99.

Solstice

David Hewson: Solstice (USA 1999)

From the Publisher:
It rises in the east, casting its golden brilliance over the globe. Nurturing. Melting the winter snows and growing the summer crops. Until the strange days begin. Solar flares erupt and disrupt communications. The sun burns brighter, hotter, drier - until the giver of life and light becomes a rolling, teeming heat wave igniting pandemonium and chaos. But the weary, frightened people of the world do not know that the solar storms are only part of the story. An even more terrible truth is about to explode out of the shadows...

From Japan to Spain to California, the most brilliant minds in science are scrambling to interpret the phenomenon. One scientist, a man whose life is in shambles, is about to be told the truth: Something human is causing the violent power of the sun to focus on specific targets - with enough concentrated energy to destroy entire cities.

Michael Lieberman has been contacted by the CIA's chief scientist, a woman frozen out of Washington's inner circle. Together they investigate how Air Force One has been knocked out of the sky... why computer systems are unraveling... how Las Vegas has been targeted by an electromagnetic explosion. Racing against the clock, Lieberman and Helen Wagner are hunting not for scientific answers but for one woman: the mastermind of a staggering techno-hijacking that has turned a raging sun into the ultimate weapon - and who is about to use it to the most terrifying effect of all.

David Hewson: Solstice. A Thriller. Warner Books, ISBN: 0446524492 (July, 1999), 470 p., $23.95 (?).

Solstice

David Hewson: Solstice (UK 1998)

From the Publisher:
With an extraordinary pattern of solar events causing electro-magnetic mayhem across a panicking globe, a disparate group of scientists and military personnel is brought together at an observatory on the island of Mallorca. Among them is Michael Lieberman, whose maverick personality is tolerated only because he is a world authority on sun spots.

As the markets crash and aircraft fall from the sky, something catastrophic is happening here that not even Lieberman's brilliance can predict, and it soon becomes clear that he is not even being told everything the authorities already know - about a secret US solar experiment that is running out of control, or about the activities of a millennial cult run by his former lover.

The only certainty is that the solar pattern will peak at the summer solstice, in just four days' time...

Like his first two highly acclaimed novels, Semana Santa and Epiphany, Solstice is eerily atmospheric, superbly written and utterly compelling.

David Hewson: Solstice. HarperCollins, ISBN: 0002256215 (April, 1998), 500 p., £16.99.
