I had the pleasure of critiquing Over Mount Fuji while Joel was fine-tuning this book.

The book is sort of science fiction, but extrapolates a very unique reason for the well-researched phenomena of deep ocean earthquakes, ship disappearances, volcanic eruptions, and other disasters. Now, I'm not going to give that reason away here. You'll just have to read the book to find out.

Over Mount Fuji follows the American reporter Eileen O'Neill and Doctor Wulfstein, an expert on deep sea phenomena join to find the reason for the increasing number of disasters seen throughout the Pacific Ocean. Wulfstein posits a strange hypothesis that makes him the laughingstock of the scientific community, but he has proof. Proof that the others refuse to see.

A tense adventure with wonderful descriptions of everything from unnatural storms to earthquakes, Joel presents a unique theory, which will have you convinced by the end of the book.

I recommend the book particularly for those who love a great disaster novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat and turning pages.
