"For fans of the television series Law and Order, this is the weather book for you. Start with a weather-related crime (or accident), follow it with the gathering of evidence, a jury trial--often with combative lawyers and breath-holding evidence, and then wrap it all up with a verdict. Add in the twist that the gumshoe detective collecting evidence isn't a brash badge-wearing Sergeant Friday, but instead a conscientious details-orient meteorologist, often helicoptering into the scene months later, sniffing the wind and then tunneling through tomes of weather data. All together you get a very different take on classic courtroom drama. Here the weather is brought inside and put on the stand."--Bill Murray "Canadian Meteorological Oceanographic Society"
