I first read this in February 2000.

Emma Tooke is a top-class engineer and is the designer of Gulf Stream, a hydrogen farm and marine-research installation moored off the Florida coast Gulfstream is Emmaís pride and joy, but itís having a difficult childhood. Finances are precarious, sheís got the FBI snooping around suspecting a terrorist attack and being a little suspicious of her own commitment. Plus the EPA are snuffling around o the trail of environmental violations. To top it all sheís got a mother of an hurricane sneaking up on her station. All in all itís shaping up into a really bad few days.

Still our Emma doesnít give up easily and now sheís got a new friend, Keith Hellman, to help out. But of course Keith isnít all that he seems.

This is an eco-techno-thriller rather than SF, but I thought Iíd mention it anyway. Itís really rather good with an awful lot of detailed stuff about diving, rigs and the deep blue sea. The hurricane sequence was tremendously exciting I was on the edge of my futon reading this.
