It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature...
On March 18, 1990, two men uniformed in Boston blue rapped on the glass lobby doors of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and warned of a disturbance call they had received. Against standing orders, the young guard unlocked the door to the two men and unwittingly started an 81-minute heist of $500 million in master works of art, including Rembrandt's only seascape: The Storm at Galilee. The painting has never been recovered. Now, 23 years later, another heist is being planned. A madman intends to steal the power of Mother Nature herself and create a massive hurricane - the storm of the century- which will devastate the United States from the Gulf Coast region all the way up the eastern seaboard - and that's just the beginning. When the legitimate scientific community dismisses the concept as ludicrous, the only two people who can save the world are a young, ambitious asset recovery specialist and a washed-up former FBI agent. The forecast calls for trouble with shady characters in the art crime underworld, a menacing Eco-terrorist, and a ticking clock. Hop aboard a pulse-pounding thrill ride with vintage Bond-flavored action and see if you can weather the storm.
