In a merciless summer of biblical heat and destructive winds, Gabrielle Fox's main concern is a personal one: to rebuild her career as a psychologist after a shattering car accident. But when she is assigned Bethany Krall, one of the most dangerous teenagers in the country, she begins to fear she has made a terrible mistake. Raised on a diet of evangelistic hellfire, Bethany is violent, delusional, cruelly intuitive and insistent that she can foresee natural disasters - a claim which Gabrielle interprets as a symptom of doomsday delusion. But when catastrophes begin to occur on the very dates Bethany has predicted, and a brilliant, gentle physicist enters the equation, the apocalyptic puzzle intensifies and the stakes multiply. Is the self-proclaimed Nostradamus of the psych ward the ultimate manipulator, or could she be the harbinger of imminent global cataclysm on a scale never seen before?...

en mrklig bok om vrldens undergng, med bde vetenskap och bibliska referenser. vansinnigt spnnande och gripande, men frvnansvrt lttsmlt. karaktrerna r en aning klich (den bittra kvinnan som frlorat allt, en mentalt strd tonrsflicka, den svra vetenskapsmannen...), men p det hela taget en riktigt spnnande thriller.
