For hard-core adrenaline junkies... delivers high-octane action from the first page to the last." --Mystery Scene Magazine
While on a routine Eco-Watch flight above northern Canada to study one of the most powerful solar flares in history, Donovan Nash and Michael Ross narrowly miss colliding with another aircraft a Boeing 737 that's not supposed to be there. With the mysterious 737 trailing smoke, Donovan and Michael watch as the stricken aircraft makes an emergency landing on a frozen lake.
As the Boeing breaks through the ice and begins to sink, a figure escapes into the frigid water and manages to climb up onto the ice. Donovan reaches the lone survivor and discovers it's a young woman. Just before she blacks out, she whispers a dire warning, "Don't let them know I'm alive--they'll kill everyone."
Seconds to Midnight plunges Donovan Nash and the Eco-Watch team into a fight for their lives. While Donovan searches for answers at the bottom of a frozen lake in Canada, his wife, Lauren, runs from operatives embedded in the top levels of the Russian government. With communication in the Northern Hemisphere crippled by the massive solar storm, Donovan, Michael, and Lauren battle for each second, as the clock ticks toward a possible Armageddon.

of Donlays disappointing seventh Donovan Nash novel (after 2016s Pegasus Down), Donovan and his four-person crew, who are flying over northern Manitoba on a research mission in a Gulfstream jet, narrowly avoid colliding with a Boeing 737. The 737, evidently in distress, lands on a frozen lake; a lone woman escapes the aircraft before it breaks the ice and sinks. Donovan and crew land on the lake in their smaller plane and succeed in rescuing the woman, who cries before collapsing: Dont let anyone know about me. Theyll kill us all, even our families. Donovan and his wife, Lauren, a Defense Intelligence Agency operative, join forces with various others to solve the mystery of the doomed 737and the unidentified woman, whos later abducted from a Minneapolis hospital while still unconscious. Donovan and his team are in constant danger from unknown assailants, but the plot loses momentum amid long passages of unnecessary exposition. Agent: Kimberley Cameron, Kimberley Cameron Associates.
