Editorial Reviews

Review

Ambitious politicians use Government regulations to advance their personal agendas in this fast paced novel filled with all the action, drama, and intrigue of Baldacci, Clancy, and Grisham.

"Chris Skates' Going Green is an exciting, suspenseful and engaging read. It is an excellent tool for champions of curbing draconian and wasteful environmental regulations."

Becky Norton Dunlop
Vice President
The Heritage Foundation


"Going Green is a real page-turner, and I can only pray that this fictional plot does not become a reality."

Dr. Roy W. Spencer, Climate Scientist
Bestselling Author of The Great Global Warming Blunder
"Official Climatologist of the EIB Network"

From the Back Cover

Ashley Miller, environmental engineer, seemed to have it all. She felt good about her career, she had great friends, a great family, and a great hobby racing the vintage Mustang she rebuilt with her dad. How had it all unraveled so quickly.

      How had she ended up here
         hiding in this alley behind a dumpster
            her heart beating in her throat,
               in fear for her life as a madman searched for her?

And what about all that she had seen in the past hour? What did it all mean? Little did Ashley know that she held information in her shaking hand that could blow the lid off an international conspiracy! A conspiracy that would use concern over global warming as a weapon. A weapon that, unless Ashley  could piece together the clues, would bring the United States of America to its very knees!

This is probably the first novel I have read all the way through in the last 3-4 years.
Stacey L. Reames
Chris knows his subject and Going Green is a fast paced thriller that makes you want to hurry, read the next page, and find out what happens next.
Dan and Judy
I also enjoyed reading about scientific thought processes around the coal fired power plants, especially the ones in foreign countries!

This is probably the first novel I have read all the way through in the last 3-4 years. It was great. I couldn't put it down. The characters are wonderfully written, the story is intriguing plus some humor and romance are thrown in to make it the perfect book! The story follows a young plant worker as she fights to demonstrate that industry is not all bad and reveals that political machines are much more far reaching into our culture than we might have ever thought possible. Very current and really makes you think about the society we live in! READ THIS ONE!!!!

Well-written with a clever plot. Anyone who loves high tech, spy novels, mystery novels, and lots of action will love this book. Lots of humor and a bit of romance added in makes it perfect.

I had the privilege of reading an earlier version of Going Green last summer. I told my wife that Chris had written a best seller and that Going Green was as good as any book written by John Grisham, Terri Blackstock, or any other of the authors I have read. Chris allowed my wife to read the early version and she agreed with me.

Chris knows his subject and Going Green is a fast paced thriller that makes you want to hurry, read the next page, and find out what happens next. Chris outlines a plausible story that has played out in many ways in our society today. Many of the things Chris included as fiction when writing Going Green have become fact today. We pray that the rest of story does not play out as Chris writes in Going Green, but it is certainly possible.

The characters and the storyline are very believable and reminds me of The Firm by John Grisham in terms of making one think if this story could really happen. You will not be dissappointed with Going Green.

I had previously read a book written by Chris Skates & Dan Tankersley, called The Rain. It was a book I will read again...written as well as any of the well known authors I read.

I had just finished The Last Operative by Jerry Jenkins before reading this one, and the quality of writing was similar - both are now on my 'favorite books' list.

In Going Green, I was immediately caught up in the story lines of the characters, and as the suspense built I found myself wondering what would happen next, even when I had to wait for time to read more. As for the political climate in our country, while a fictitious work (although some of the things he writes about have really happened since the writing), I realized how easily well meaning people today are caught up in issues when they have no real understanding of the big picture, or the agenda being played out by those in power. Many well intentioned Americans jump on the 'cause de celebre' bandwagon, wanting to do something good, yet not realizing they are part of something sinister.

I highly recommend this book.

I have read all of John Grisham's books and found them riveting and able to keep my focus and attention. Grisham writes primarily from his profession as an attorney. I believe it gives him credibility in the stories he writes. I am not a writer, editor, nor one who critiques for a living. But I am very critical in writing style. The author must tell me more than facts. He/she must envelop me into the action and emotion of the story. Chris has done this. He also does not write from personal feelings but does research to support the story. Though this book is fiction, there are substantiated facts in the narrative. When one uses the proper lens, you can see the direction this nation is headed in the "green" movement. Green is not just a color -- it is a social and political agenda.

I recently finished reading Going Green and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was suspense, romance, intrigue. I also enjoyed reading about scientific thought processes around the coal fired power plants, especially the ones in foreign countries! Very eye opening and great food for thought. I would highly recommend this book.
