Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982930526, Paperback)

LEAVES IN WINTER is a techno-thriller torn from near-future headlines, a cautionary tale on the converging forces of biotech, global governance, and the hard choices of survival for a human civilization teetering beyond its tipping points. Never before has a society faced a greater dilemma between what is right and what is necessary. So much is possible and yet options narrow. Sustainability looms as the benchmark of the century. Who can we rely on to do what's necessary? Who will we trust to do what's right? More importantly, who will decide one from the other for all of us?

A planet in peril. Humanity on the brink.
On the current path, the future is untenable, civilization unsustainable.
Someone must make the hard choices. Someone has to see it through.
The unthinkable must be done. The alternative is horrific.
The choice is clear.
Six billion people must die -- or we all die.
The situation is ripe for unintended consequences.

Powerful forces are at work.
The determined elite can wait no longer.
Some will be given extended life. Some will enjoy new world harmony.
Many will be sacrificed.
But no one ever expected it would be about the children.
You'll know when the time comes. Wait for the sign.
The go-code. Triple-Green.

A few know the truth. Even less want it known.
But only one risks everything trying to save us all.
