Book of the Week #24

Destiny: How Humanity's Arrogance will Lead to Nature's Ultimate Response by Carl Howe Hansen (Maine Authors Publishing, 2015)

"Don't start this book if you have anything urgent to do! You won't be able to put it down. Dr. Peter Petersen's discovery of bacteria designed to clean up oil spills promises a solution to environmental disaster, but when it is released prematurely, it threatens to end the world as we know it. Wild adventures at sea, geopolitical crisis, a frantic race to avert calamity-all are made human by the story of two brilliant but estranged brothers, grappling with their past. To top it all, there's the story of first love in the face of an impending catastrophe. This is a rip-roaring thriller with a heart. -REBECCA PEPPER SINKLER, former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Book Review"
