Pre-dawn in the oil strip… In a white Ford courier van, one man is on his way to make sure the entire city hears his wake-up call.
Oil prices are rocketing. Terror attacks have destabilised the global economy. The White House believes the Nigerian oil fields are the key to safeguarding America’s future… but someone else sees them as an opportunity to increase their own power.
Travelling from New York to Nigeria, investigative journalist and ex-navy operative Lachlan Fox is hunting the story. He’s seen action in Afghanistan, East Timor and Iraq but this time it’s personal. Wrestling with demons that push him right to the edge and leave him exposed like never before, will Fox uncover the truth in time? Or will his quest for revenge see him go too far?
