If you liked Michael Crichton’s book State of Fear and the way he exposed the global warming hoax, you’re going to love this book.
The Cassandra Sanction
The People You Trust Are Lying To You
By Scott Mariani
To be honest, I don’t usually read much fiction, but this new book by Scott Mariani (Jan 2016) grabbed me from the very first sentence. Perhaps that’s because, as the publisher puts it, “it takes a controversial stand on the subject of climate change” … a controversial stand that I applaud.
And when Mariani’s heroine, an astronomer, says we’re now headed into an ice age, well, I’m doubly hooked.
Scott Mariani is a Sunday Times (U.K.) bestselling author of an action-thriller series starring Ben Hope, a whiskey-drinking – ahem – “Crisis Response Consultant.” The series has garnered one million in sales in the UK alone.
Mariani’s novels have been described as ‘James Bond meets Jason Bourne with a historical twist’.
What makes this book so compelling for me is that in addition to his captivating writing abilities, Mariani is also a keen astronomer with his own personal observatory. He carried out a massive amount of research to write the book, insuring that it’s scientifically accurate.
Not a science book
But don’t worry. This is in not a science book. It’s filled with exciting action from cover to cover, the sort of action that deserves to be made into a blockbuster movie.
The story begins with Ben Hope enjoying – or trying to enjoy – a quiet drink in a peaceful Spanish bar. What he gets instead is trouble, the kind of trouble that involves an unfair fight between him, his new-found Spanish friend, and eight inebriated men. Unfair, because Ben and the man he takes under his wing, Raul Fuentes, leave the bullies writhing and flopping on the floor. (Ben enjoys hurting bad guys.)
Then the real action, involving a fraudulent conspiracy to dupe all of humankind, begins.
I don’t want to tell you too much more, other than to say that the book concludes with a very satisfying ending.
Timothy Olyphant as Ben
I’d love to see The Cassandra Sanction made into a movie. Mariani envisions Timothy Olyphant as Ben, and perhaps Catherine Zeta Jones as the gorgeous astronomer. (Oliphant starred as Raylan Givens in one of my favorite TV series, “Justified,” and I can easily see him playing the part.)
