Sinopse

HE HAS BECOME THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD... NOW HE HAS TO SAVE IT... 'The heir to Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton? Ultimatum is better than either.' Economist Joe Benton has been elected the forty-eighth president of the United States. Only days after the election results, Benton learns from his predecessor that previous estimates regarding the effect of global warming on rising sea levels have been grossly underestimated. With the world terrifyingly close to catastrophe, Benton must save the United States from environmental devastation. He resumes secret bilateral negotiations with the Chinese - now the world's worst polluter - and as the two superpowers lock horns, the ensuing battle of wits becomes a race against time. With tension escalating on almost every page and building to an astonishing climax, Matthew Glass's visionary and deeply unsettling thriller steers us into the dark heart of political intrigue and a future that is all too terrifyingly believable. Praise for Ultimatum: 'The first politico-diplomatic-disaster thriller, Mr Glass's engrossing work leaves the reader thinking long after the last page is turned... Vivid as it is dark... The ending is brilliant.' The Economist 'A spellbinding debut novel from a writer poised to turn the thriller world upside-down.' William Bernhardt 'Sharp as a well-honed scalpel, Ultimatum is a masterful novel with deftly drawn characters, real settings, and a dark, dark understanding of geopolitical reality. The ending will leave you gasping.' Douglas Preston
