Summary
  • "Big oil means big money. Very big money. And that fact unleashes corruption that stretches from Houston to Washington to the Mideast -- and ensnares industrialists, princes, spies, politicos, oilfield laborars and terrorists in a deadly, deceptive web of move and countermove."--Container notes
  • As a career CIA operative, Bob Barnes begins to uncover the disturbing truth about the work he has devoted his life to. An up-and-coming oil broker, Bryan Woodman faces an unimaginable family tragedy and finds redemption in his partnership with idealistic Gulf Prince Nasir al-Subaai. Corporate lawyer, Bennett Holiday faces a moral dilemma as he finesses the questionable merger of two powerful U.S. oil companies Across the globe, a disenfranchised Wasim Khan, a Pakistani teenager, falls prey to the recruiting efforts of a charismatic cleric. Each plays their small part in the vast and complex system that powers the industry, unaware of the explosive impact their lives will have upon the world
