'A gripping story . . . Klass can weave a tale like few others.' David Baldacci
America's most wanted man. The world's only hope?
For months, the FBI have been on the hunt for a terrorist who seems invincible. The death toll is rising, yet somehow the killer, known only as the "Green Man", has avoided leaving a single clue.
This is no ordinary villain. Each attack is carefully planned to destroy a target that threatens the environment. Each time, the protest movement that supports the Green Man grows ever larger.
Tom Smith is a young computer programmer with the FBI, trying to escape his father's domineering shadow. An expert in pattern recognition, Tom believes he's spotted something everyone else has missed.
At long last, Tom makes a breakthrough. But as he closes in on America's most dangerous man, he's forced to ask himself one question:
What if the man you're trying to stop is the one who's trying to save the world?
This entertaining if predictable thriller from YA author Klass (Losers Take All) pits FBI data analyst Tom Smith against Green Man, an eco-terrorist (or heroic environmental activist, depending on one's perspective) who has targeted industries and sites that are hastening humankind's seemingly unstoppable march toward extinction. After the destruction of a dam on Idaho's Snake River, which had been stopping wild salmon runs, Smith, whose estranged father is a retired FBI agent, is put on the Green Man Task Force. His instincts, like his father's, are uncannily accurate, and soon he begins closing in on the elusive bomber, whose mission is to create a sustainable earth where the next generation has hope for the future. The topic is timely, the pacing is pedal-to-the-metal, and Klass does a solid job of creating three-dimensional characters out of Smith and Green Man but the conclusion is far too obvious. Hopefully, the author will include some big plot twists or revelations in his next outing.
