By Wendy L. Hines VINE VOICE on October 8, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
Ben Mason and Bertrand 'Shorty' Short have developed a program that can show what the planet will look like in the future. To use it, they use the newest ten computers that the nation uses for its defense. What they see shocks them. C02 buildup in the atmosphere has caused the weather to destabilize. After chaos reigns, the earth settles into high temperature conditions where almost nothing could survive. Only a few areas will have the water, areas no one habituates now.

Ben and Shorty, with the help of Ben's lover Claudine, implore the Senate that they must move immediately with the information - building pipelines and desalinating plants. Those who hold the water control the power and they believe it should be fairly distributed. However, Yuri, a Russian General who was reassigned for his political beliefs, hacks into their computer and uses that information for his own gain. Ben is directed by the CIA to block Yuri's plot, but his life is soon in peril and the climate change is rapidly approaching. Time is ticking.

Red Hot Sky is an adventure that will keep you thoroughly entertained, yet leave you thinking long after the last page is read. Short chapters make the pace quick and the characters are believable and relatable. Romance, mystery, science that even I can understand and sharp writing mesh together into a thrilling read!

At first glance, "Red Hot Sky" reminded me of the movie Armageddon. The world was going to end, a man was going to save it, he gets the girl, and everything turns out picture perfect as world destruction is avoided once again. While this book contained some of those cliché elements, Gordon Gumpertz transforms this classic man versus nature battle into an action packed story of survival.

This adventure all begins with one man: Ben Mason. After years of research and models, Dr. Mason launches a supercomputer that will showcase the earth's condition within the next couple of years. As he slowly scrolls through the projections, Dr. Mason uncovers a devastating fact: the earth will suffer a major drought that will devastate all of humanity. Dubbed as the Jupiter effect (because of the red, dry circles that will form because of the drought), Dr. Mason works with his partner and lover, Dr. Claudine Manet to save the world.

However, things take an interesting turn when attempts begin to be made on Ben's life. From a sniper shooting at his moving car to being pushed to the edge of a ravine, Ben starts to deduce that his results may not be as private as he once thought. Hiring a private detective to accompany him to Geneva for a conference, Ben suddenly becomes entangled with the CIA as he becomes their new spy. Infiltrating Russia and discovering a secret plot formulated by dictator Yuri Kulganin, Ben is given a series of missions that will force him to become the world's savior.

While the plot and details seem extremely overwhelming at first, Gumpertz cleverly pieces each puzzle piece together in a way that seems natural. Alternating chapters allow the reader to see multiple plots converging into one.

My Opinion:
Two words: Great book! This book is one I couldn't put down. The author takes us with him through an elaborate tale of what will happen when the world we know starts having some dramatic changes take place. The main character of Ben is a scientist that, with the help of a few others, come up with a computer model that can foretell what the earth's atmosphere will be like in years to come. What that answer is, is bad new for anything living. This thriller kept my heart beating so fast in hopes that Ben and the team could come up with the answers needed to save mankind. As all of this is going on, you also are learning about a Russian military man who wants to control Russia and eventually has his sight set on world domination! This book is faced paced but written so you aren't made to feel that anything is "above your head" so to speak. I recommend this book as it is a great read and I never felt left out of anything.
I give Red Hot Sky by Gordon Gumpertz 4.5 of 5 stars.
