Based on the 2004 novel by Michael Crichton. Peter Evans is a young lawyer who represents millionaire philanthropist George Morton. Morton's assistant, Sarah Jones, is a close friend of Peter's who works with him to unravel why Morton all of the sudden begins to question the motives of the environmental organizations he finances and then appears to die in a car accident. While attempting to figure out what happened to Morton, Peter and Sarah get involved in an operation involving National Security Intelligence Agency agents Dr. John Kenner and Dr. Sanjong Thapa. Kenner and Thapa are attempting to foil a group of ecoterrorists who are attempting to manipulate the environment to exaggerate the theoretical effects of global warming because the actual evidence of global warming is very thin. These terrorists are coordinated by another attorney who knows Evans, Nicholas Drake, and other members of his organization including his hired muscle, Bolden, and a Hollywood financial supporter, Ted Bradley. Towards the end of the story, Peter Evans encounters Professor Norman Hoffman, who explains to Evans how the powers that be use fear to manipulate and control people, and how the environmental movement is not an exception to that rule. After that encounter, Evans meets up with Sarah, Jennifer Haynes (a mysterious lawyer involved in Drake's operation who clearly has other motives), Kenner, Thapa, and Bradley (who is sent by Drake to spy on the group) as they travel to the South Pacific to try to stop the ecoterrorists Drake is coordinating from completing an act of terrorism that will have dire consequences for the entire world.
