Kate Sherman is a brilliant young meteorologist who can’t understand how she recently missed predicting three major storms—storms that cut into the profits of her employer, Coriolis Industries. Afraid of being fired, Kate throws herself into an analysis of the strange storms—and headlong into the path of a secret plot that may cost her her life!
Hurricane Simone is a Category 7—the biggest, strongest storm in recorded history—and she’s clawing her way up the East Coast. When she hits New York City, skyscrapers will fall. Subways and tunnels will flood. Lower Manhattan and much of Queens and Brooklyn will disappear under more than thirty feet of water. Thousands, if not millions, will die.
Created by secret, cutting-edge weather science, Simone is not just an unnatural disaster—she’s a weapon. Kate and CIA weatherman Jake Baxter must figure out how to stop the storm before she flattens New York City . . . and identify Simone’s master before he has them both killed.

"Hurricane Katrina was a Category 4 when she made landfall. Hurricane Simone is a Category 7 - the biggest, strongest storm in recorded history. When she hits New York City, skyscrapers will fall. Subways and tunnels will flood. Lower Manhattan and much of Queens and Brooklyn will disappear under more than thirty feet of water." "All along the Eastern Seaboard, towns and cities are being evacuated as wind-driven rain lashes the coast and storm surges crash through seawalls. Roads are packed with fleeing motorists, whose cars are jammed with every personal possession that can be crammed in, plus family members, friends, and beloved pets. A huge natural disaster is brewing in the Atlantic.""Except that Simone isn't natural. She's the product of rogue weather science being wielded by billionaire Carter Thompson as part of a personal vendetta against U.S. President Winslow Benson. Once, Carter wanted to bring rain to the desert and feed the starving peoples of the planet. Now he wants to show Benson - and the rest of the world - just how powerful wind and water can be." "If technology created Simone, perhaps technology can stop her. It's up to Kate Sherman, once a member of Carter's weather team, and Jake Baxter, a weatherman for the CIA, to try, using a secret U.S. Navy weapon."--BOOK JACKET.
