Blog Tour: Reveiw of Red Hot Sky by Gordon Gumpertz @pumpupyourbook

Title: Red Hot Sky
Author: Gordon Gumpertz
Publisher: CreateSpace
Publication Date: October/November 2011
Paperback: 350 pages
Genre: Thriller, End of the World Thriller

Description from Back Cover:
CO2 buildup in earth’s atmosphere reaches a tipping point. Global weather destabilizes, turns chaotic. Ice storms, dust storms, floods, blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes pummel the earth nonstop. A secret computer model reveals that the frantic weather will peak out, and transform world climate into an alien environment devastating to human survival.
Scientists Ben Mason, Claudine Manet, and Bertrand Short are developers of the computer model. Ben and Claudine are lovers as well as lab partners. While they work frantically to head off the approaching catastrophe, a disgraced Russian general hacks into their model and sees earth’s bleak future as his opportunity for ultimate world power.
Ben, who had left the CIA to develop the computer model at the national lab, is reactivated by the Agency and sent on a perilous mission to block the rogue general’s plot. Claudine, not realizing that Ben is on a secret mission, misunderstands his absence, putting their relationship on thin ice.
Claudine is placed in charge of a massive NASA project that, if completed on time, could stop the approaching doomsday climate change. But her project is stalled by bureaucracy. Ben is on the run in hostile territory. The climate change calamity steadily approaches.

My Opinion:
Two words: Great book! This book is one I couldn’t put down. The author takes us with him through an elaborate tale of what will happen when the world we know starts having some dramatic changes take place. The main character of Ben is a scientist that, with the help of a few others, come up with a computer model that can foretell what the earth’s atmosphere will be like in years to come. What that answer is, is bad new for anything living. This thriller kept my heart beating so fast in hopes that Ben and the team could come up with the answers needed to save mankind. As all of this is going on, you also are learning about a Russian military man who wants to control Russia and eventually has his sight set on world domination! This book is faced paced but written so you aren’t made to feel that anything is “above your head” so to speak. I recommend this book as it is a great read and I never felt left out of anything.

I give Red Hot Sky by Gordon Gumpertz 4.5 of 5 stars.

Gordon Gumpertz brings fiction readers another exciting action/adventure experience in his new novel RED HOT SKY. This is the author’s second book, following his highly acclaimed novel TSUNAMI.
In addition to writing novels, Gordon has won gold and silver awards in national and regional short story competitions. He is a member of the Authors Guild, the Palm Springs Writers Guild, a UCLA graduate, and an instrument-rated private pilot. He keeps his website current by blogging on natural disasters and natural phenomena.
Gordon and his wife Jenny live not far from the San Andreas fault, where the Pacific Plate thrusts into the North American Plate, building increasingly high levels of faultline stress which, the seismologists say, may soon produce the Big One.
