Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595461824, Paperback)

Science and superstition clash in a dangerous high-stakes gamble to build a geothermal energy plant on Hawaii’s Big Island, tapping the power from the Kilauea Volcano. Dr. Yonette Weber, the young geologist brought in to oversee the project after the previous manager’s fatal accident, quickly finds herself in the middle of a battle for the island’s most precious resource—land. Those opposed to the energy plant include a religious group that worships the volcano goddess Pele, local ranchers and environmentalists, the oil industry, and the military. What’s more, as Yonette works to complete the project on time, someone is secretly watching her and tracking her movements. Yonette’s growing attraction to Brad Hudson, a charismatic resort developer, puts them both at risk. Eruptions on Kilauea, more fatalities, a priceless red crystal with untold powers, and Madame Pele herself add to the danger, leading up to a fiery climax in the very heart of the volcano.
