(From the publisher):
Once it nurtured us. Grew our crops. Bathed us in its warmth. Now the sun is destroying us, as each day the temperature rises. Water is sucked from the earth. Cancerous diseases bloom. And humankind races panic-stricken for shelter as the most powerful societies and sophisticated infrastructures begin to fry...
Why is it happening? How can it be stopped? For a man and woman drawn into the upper echelons of a worldwide scientific search, the answer is staggering: The sun has turned deadly not because of global warming or any natural phenomenon. The sun has turned deadly because once a government built a fantastic weapon. And now it has fallen into the wrong hands...
And the burning has just begun...
