One beat of a butterfly's wings is all it takes to set in motion a chain of events, over the course of one day, which will change people's lives - and end people's lives. From the father and son diving in Hawaii to the teenagers surfing the bullet train...from the kidnapped girl in Rio to a bear attack in Japan...the chaos knows no bounds. The action is non-stop in this tense and compelling adventure.

Currently, he is planning an ascent of Mount Denali in Alaska, one of the ‘Seven Summits’.
