Fact and fiction collide in this explosive thriller. Before biochemist Ralph Withers' new company, GreenHeat, can produce its first drop of clean-burning soy diesel, it is broadsided by an invisible force with lethal tentacles set deep into board rooms, government agencies, and OPEC. A secret consortium protecting world oil markets? One that crushes competition with deadly force? Ridiculous, say Ralph and friends. Until an FBI agent on-the-run, a Hollywood producer, and an ex-SEAL join Ralph on a fast-paced roller coaster of death and deception from the Goldcoast of Southern California to the islands of Maine.
