Politics is the major motivator behind the action when the current president decides to build a high-level nuclear waste disposal site to bolster his reelection chances. The lively geologist chosen for the project has ties to the area and rekindles some old friendships and past loves. Power plays abound whether they are on a worldwide scale or just involve the bedroom, they intertwine deviously to keep the reader wondering what will happen next.
