Overton writes about things that matter, that are in themselves interesting, and he provides characters to match. I learned a lot about carbon dioxide and sequestrations, but I cared more about two of the characters. Overton is one of my favorite authors.
Thought provoking and full of scientific facts this story leads the reader down the path of what corruption and greed create. After a rather slow start the story picks up nicely and even has a bit of family turmoil and romance thrown in the mix.

It’s chilling, but still, well worth reading.
Are the powers that be really considering storing carbon underground? This story delves into this possibility resulting in catastrophe, providing a feasible account of such an enterprise. The fast paced race to prevent the inevitable outcome once leakage of carbon is detected made it difficult to put the book down, knowing that a disaster was imminent but not knowing the extent of it and who would come out unscathed, if anyone. This was a great read and a disturbing insight into a venture based on greed rather than a realistic solution to a very real problem.
