Online Book Reviews
Since some of my favorite movies are of the End of Times
variety, I jumped at the chance to be able to read and review this book, not
even knowing a thing about the author or if he had any talent! I struck gold! I
have not read his first book Tsunami, but I’m gonna go find it! He really knew
what he was talking about or really can write a great fiction tale when it
comes to natural disasters. While the story line is similar to many of the
others out there…we are on the edge of something extraordinary happening in
our universe, he added even more action with tense relationships with another
country. There is even a love story thrown into all of this chaos. It was another
fast paced action packed novel that kept me reading from page one til the end!
Go. Buy. Now. Especially if you like the whole crazy weather ending the world stories! Rated PG because of some language….and a little violence.

Gordon Gumpertz transforms this classic man vs. nature battle into an action-packed story of survival.
The adventure all begins with one man: Ben Mason. After years of research and models, Dr. Mason launches a supercomputer that will showcase the earth’s condition within the next couple of years. As he slowly scrolls through the projections, Dr. Mason uncovers a devastating fact: the earth will suffer a major drought that will devastate all of humanity. Dubbed as the Jupiter Effect (because of the dry red circles that will form because of the drought), Dr. Mason works with his partner and lover, Dr. Claudine Manet to save the world.
However, things take an interesting turn when attempts began to be made on Ben’s life. From a sniper shooting at his moving car to being pushed to the edge of a ravine, Ben begins to deduce that his results may not be as private as he once thought. Hiring a private detective to accompany him to a conference in Geneva, Ben suddenly becomes entangled with the CIA as he becomes their new spy. Infiltrating Russia and discovering a secret plot formulated by dictator Yuri Kulganin, Ben is given a series of missions that will force him to become the world’s savior. While the plot and details seemextremely overwhelming at first, Gumpertz carefully places each puzzle piece
together in a way that seems natural. Alternating chapters allow the reader to
see multiple plots converging into one. The characters were endearing and acted in a in a realistic manner, and I especially liked how Gumpertz detailed the interaction and dialogues between Ben and Claudine. Instead of a cookie-cutter romance, Gumpertz created a strong, independent female that was not afraid to speak her mind and a romance that suffered ups and downs, much like any other natural relationship.
… Red Hot Sky is a well-written end of the world thriller that will satisfy any reader.

Set against a backdrop of international intrigue and a race to save the planet from climatic disaster, Red Hot Sky grabs the reader from the opening page and doesn’t let go until the final page is turned.

Red Hot Sky is absolutely WONDERFUL! I just can’t get over the amount of research that went into it – the variety, the locations, just everything! It is a real breath-holder until the very very last! I can see it as a movie too. I’m busy casting it now.

The life-threatening power of extreme weather —over the planet and over men—takes the reader into a world of intrigue and international espionage.

With his unique knowledge, he becomes the only person capable of stopping the Machiavellian plan his discovery has unleashed.
Renegade Russian army General Yuri Kulganin connives for world domination and absolute power. Ben Mason’s computerized look into the future fits right into his plans. Mason’s associate and lover, Dr. Claudine Manet, discovers an antidote to combat the approaching climatic disaster, but time and government funding are not on her side.
Along with his gift as a storyteller, Gumpertz weaves together science, technology, and the international scene with skill and knowledge. Can the earth endure a red hot sky? If not, what’s ahead? Join Dr. Ben Mason’s dangerous mission as this high-tech twenty-first century adventure unfolds. A terrific read!
