About this title:

Synopsis: Thirty years after the 1994 Los Angeles earthquake killed his family, Lewis Crane has become the world's top seismologist, determined to protect people from his parent's fate. But in a world controlled by Chinese corporations and split by racist and religious strife, many don't want him to succeed.

From the Publisher: From the New York Times bestselling author of Rama Revealed comesa thrilling new collaborative novel of the race to avert a massive earthquake:the apocalyptic "big one" that threatens to send California sliding off intothe Pacific Ocean.

Arthur C. Clarke is the greatest living writer of science fiction, the mindthat produced a string of blockbuster New York Times bestsellers:2001: A Space Odyssey and its sequels, as well as Rama II, The Gardenof Rama and Rama Rescaled. Now, he turns his remarkable imaginativepowers to a near-future novel of the struggle to avoid catastrophe in the formof a colossal earthquake more destructive than any in human history. Writtenwith Mike McQuay, this is a thrilling novel of man's will to survive againstunstoppable forces of nature.

Lewis Crane lived through the devastating Los Angeles earthquake of 1994. Hesurvived, but his family didn't--and at ten years old, his life was rippedapart.

At the age of thirty-five, Lewis has devoted himself to the study of the mostpowerful force on Earth: earthquakes. He is the foremost expert in the fieldof seismology; and when he predicts a gigantic quake, everyone prepares fordisaster. But to his relief and dismay, the quake never occurs, and suddenlyCrane is the subject of ridicule from scientists around the world. Then hediscovers a mistake in his calculations, and realizes that the "Big One" isjust around the corner. The clock is ticking as he attempts to convince theworld that this time, catastrophe is certain.

Richter 10 is vintage Arthur C. Clarke--a fast-paced novel of ideas andnear-future imagination, realized by McQuay's talent for characterization andingenious plotting--and is the major science fiction event of the season.
