Inhaltsangabe: November 2032, Joe Benton has just been elected the 48th president of the United States. Only days after winning, 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 frighteningly close to catastrophe, Benton must save the United States from environmental devastation. He resumes secret bilateral negotiations with the Chinese--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 believable. "A rare thriller that terrifies not because it is possible, but because it feels probable--if not inevitable. 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, author of The Monster of Florence "Prophetic. I hope to God this isn't the future--but Matthew Glass makes it all so believable that I fear for our planet."--Lincoln Child, author of Deep Storm
From the Inside Flap: "Ultimatum is a gripping, smart, and finally, persuasive thriller that had me glued to the pages. It is rare to find a book as thought provoking as it is exciting. I came away, not only entertained, but glad I had read it. Highly recommended!"--Christopher Reich, The Rules of Deception
"Ultimatum by Matt Glass is a rare thriller that terrifies not because it is possible, but because it feels probable--if not inevitable. Fifteen years from now, the U.S. and China face off over catastrophically rising sea levels due to global warming. 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, author of The Monster of Florence
"Ultimatum is a spellbinding debut novel from a writer poised to turn the thriller world upside-down. Joe Benton is an engaging, complex, protagonist--the kind of President we wish we saw more often. The plot is fast-paced and full of surprises. And at the heart of all the action is a thought-provoking cautionary tale about a real-life thriller that may lurk in our future if we don't listen to what Matt Glass has to say."--William Bernhardt, author of Capitol Murder
"Prophetic. I hope to God this isn't the future--but Matt Glass makes it all so believable that I fear for our planet."--Lincoln Child, author of Deep Storm
"When I published Superstorm in 1999, I never dreamed that, just eight short years later, I would find myself reading a novel about a president facing the ultimate catastrophe: the collapse of the environment and the end of earth's ability to support the human species. What is so appalling is that the next president, or the one after, is very likely to experience something like the horror that unfolds in this frightening, compulsively readable novel. Here's my ultimatum: read it. Do it for your kids and your own future."--Whitley Strieber, author of 2012: The War for Souls
"Ultimatum is a great read--both a gripping thriller and a remarkably intelligent political novel. Matt Glass weaves together fascinating research, thoughtful analysis and first-rate story telling to produce a novel that is hard to put down and will stay with reader long after the conclusion."--David Liss, author of The Whiskey Rebels
"Ultimatum is seriously good. Matt Glass' inside view of the White House in international crisis mode is simply first rate. With Ultimatum Matt Glass has done for the world of international politics what Tom Clancy did for the world of submarines in Hunt for Red October."--David Hagberg, author of Dance With The Dragon and The Expeditor
