Los Angeles temperature, August 9: -105 degrees Fahrenheit, and falling.
The sunspot was huge. Nothing like it had ever been seen before---a twenty-billion square mile dark blot on the surface of the sun, and growing. Dr. Tyler at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff has a theory that might explain what's happening, and the news isn't good. Which is why he's being kept under surveillance after having been told to keep his theory to himself. Keeping his theory under wraps isn't easy, not when a gorgeous reporter for Parsec magazine, Gail Dionne, has him in her sights, out to get a story. Tyler's well-ordered world spins out of control when all these forces converge on him, and the world begins to grow colder as the sun . . . goes . . . out.
"An intriguing thriller that mixes terror and threat to the planet on a grand scale. A first-rate tale told by a first-class writer" -- Clive Cussler
