Second Wind

The catastrophic power of a giant hurricane can raise coastal waves thirty feet high and blow through houses at speeds far above those of tennis balls served by champions. Perry Stuart, TV meteorologist working routinely before cameras, chiefly predicts periods of English drizzle, with bursts of heavier rain and sunshine to follow.

Not that is, until a fellow forecaster offers him a Carribean hurricane-chasing ride in a small aeroplane as a holiday diversion. By fightening accident, Stuart learns more secrets from the flight than wind speeds - and back home in England he faces threats and danger as deadly as anything that nature can evolve...
