No Killing Sky
When a young Irish climber, Liam Doyle, sets out to discover who has murdered his father, high in the death zone of the 'savage mountain' K2, he is confronted by a series of inexplicable and deeply troubling events.
Gradually and circuitously he uncovers an international fossil fuel cartel that has set out to restore the Arctic ice sheets, by covertly releasing aerosol sulphates into the planet's stratosphere. Their intention is, once again, to discredit contemporary climate science, manipulate the markets, delay the development of renewables and ultimately make a further fortune from ongoing geo—engineering.
The Arctic ice has returned, the South Asian monsoon has failed again and Donna Stone, the new US president, has been assassinated. There is now no choice for Liam and his associates but to risk their lives trying to expose the activities of this criminal cabal to the world's media. Only then might it be possible to prevent a catastrophe that could ultimately claim the lives of more than a billion people.
