Actually this is more a 3.5 but GoodReads doesn't have the half point ranking system I wish it had. This new book is the perfect airport read - by that I mean pick it up at the airport, read it in the lounge, read it on the plane, read it when you get to your hotel. A night or two later, you've finished and it's been quite the ride. You read the final chapters much quicker as the fictional world around you descends into a race against time.

This book is so much better than the blurb! This is not a story about radical greenies chaining themselves to trees or stopping whaling ship. It's a thriller about well-educated, very patient and highly-placed individuals who intend to help the environment by wreaking havoc, on a global scale, to economies, transport systems and many other areas. Welcome to protesting in the digital age, you don't even need to leave your office to make your presence felt.
An ingenious, enlightening and thrilling read.
Just finished reading it. Amazingly good! Equal to thrillers written by Ludlum, Patterson, Grisham & others. Eagerly awaiting The Sequel.
Interesting premise and a ripping good yarn
