Going green and bioterrorism are at odds with each other as Dr. Ray Pendleton confronts Dirk Hendrickson. Dirk tries to destroy Ray’s methane digesters. The deadly epidemic that breaks out seems to point to Ray’s project as the cause. The novel takes a dramatic spin when Ray comes down with an infection from the plague bacterium.

This medical thriller uses realistic situations like those found in Robin Cook’s books while employing the underlying opinion driven plot technique of Michael Palmer. The theme of this novel is: “The negative energy of protest becomes a positive force once the creative use of green power is achieved.”

Dirk unsnapped his long, heavy night stick and held it high with his right muscular arm, pointing it toward Ray.
“You there!” Dirk shouted. “Tell your people to leave now. This is private property and you are trespassing.”
Ray, almost the same height but not quite as powerfully built as Dirk, stepped forward and challenged him. “We are rate payers, taxpayers and citizens who have every right to be here.”
One of the three demonstrators shaking the gates began yelling, “Let us in or we’ll tear these damn things down!”
Dirk responded by running his night stick across the gripping fingers of all three demonstrators shouting, “Back off! The sheriffs are on their way. I can assure you that arrests will be made.”
As the injured demonstrators let loose of the gate yelling out in pain, Ray looked at Dirk with blazing eyes. Knowing his temper, Ray had to control himself. He tried to be calm. “You’re the one who will be arrested. This is assault!”
Green Power Review by Schaleina
This book Green Power is truly an exciting page-turner from beginning to end. The author captured my thoughts and attention, through his brilliant characters, plots and sub plots. He took me from the picket line to open farmland, under the microscope and in a firestorm of bullets. The plot was a web-spinning masterpiece with lots of unexpected twists and turns, love and loss. The authors intimate knowledge of microscopic bacteria and the medical and technical study of them comes through clearly in the saga played out by his main character, Dr. Ray Pendleton. This author ranks highly with some of the best medical thriller authors that I have read. I give this book a five star. Excellent!!!!

Green Power Review by Johhny
Finished it today, and give it a thumbs up! It has elements of an action thriller, environmental thriller, romance novel, and tear jerker in one spot. Almost historical because almost all of it takes place in 1989, with a short chapter at the end bringing us up to the present.Well done, and recommended reading for those who like to read a mix of science fact, action and romance, and a little 1980s history in dramatic fiction. Well developed characters, and even though we know the answers to parts of the medical thriller and crime drama, it is fun to have the various characters find the answers.
There are a few points of slight errors, but nothing serious enough to take away from a great reading book. The expertise of the microbiology science more than made up for that. Five Stars!

Green Power Review by Sam
Just finished this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. The action sequences and characters are well written and the technical sections are easy to read and understand. It raises some interesting questions about the use of alternative renewable energy supplies (in the case the small scale use of methane for energy production) instead of larger scale projects and the role of the media in informing and thus determining the public perception of such schemes. The effects of public demonstrations are also touched upon with both sides using these, in one instance to show support for the use of alternative energy and in the other against them. A very interesting and thought provoking read.
