Reviews
Praise for Category 7: "A superb thriller of a disaster untold until now."Clive Cussler, New York Times bestselling author, on Category 7 "If there ever was a Category 7, I'd trust Bill Evans to get me through it! It's a great read!"Sam Champion, Good Morning America Weather Anchor and Weather Editor, ABC News "Just sit back and let the action wash over you. A fast-paced action-adventure that promises a rousing finale and delivers it." Booklist "Take a healthy dose of the paranoid scenarios from 24 and governmental intrigues from The West Wing, then spike them liberally with the atmospheric minutiae that armchair meteorologists know and love. What emerges might be strikingly similar to this clever debut. Fast-paced storytelling . . . a satisfying thriller about fooling with Mother Nature." Kirkus Reviews "What would happen if a massive super-storm hit New York City? And what if the storm's ferocity were enhanced by human activity? This is the premise of this debut thriller."
