Novelist Davies: What If Terrorists Could Control Weather?

By    |   Tuesday, 09 Sep 2014 05:38 PM

What if a mad terrorist could control the weather and use it to trigger massive flooding and wreak deadly havoc in the United States?

That's the unnerving premise behind "Ark Storm," a new thriller by New York Times bestselling author Linda Davies.

The story focuses on a catastrophic weather event set to hit California, on one man who plans to harness it to wage jihad on U.S. soil, and on another who hopes to profit from it.

The only fly in the ointment: a brilliant meteorologist named Dr. Gwen Boudain.

Davies, who grew up in Britain, said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV:

"It's based on some real science that actually exists. One is a rainmaking technology that I experienced first-hand in the desert . . . between June and September, it rained 50 times.

"So, I took a real-life scenario . . . and imagined what if you could control the weather? What if the wrong person could control the weather, and that's 'Ark Storm.'"

Davies also wrote the memoir "Hostage: Kidnapped on the High Seas," which she wrote after she and her husband, sailing in the Persian Gulf in 2005, were seized by Iranians.

They were held prisoner for 13 days as spies and released only after the British Foreign Office and the Australian government secretly intervened.

"You go into a survival mode and you realize very quickly what you need to do and what you cannot afford to do," Davies said.

"You make sure you don't antagonize them in any way, you make sure you try and form a bond with them. You show them your humanity and you try and get their inhumanity as well."
