Publisher's Summary

Russian mastermind Ivan Kerikov plans to use an ecological terrorist group to sabotage the Alaska pipeline and pollute the western coast of North America with oil, all to turn the United States from domestic to foreign sources of oil. He's being paid millions by a rogue Arab oil minister who is plotting a coup in his own country and is in desperate need of foreign income to solidify his position.But Kerikov hasn't allowed for geologist Philip Mercer, who has a talent for being in the right place at the right time. When Mercer discovers that an apparent accident was actually murder, he investigates and soon begins to untangle Kerikov's web. At his side is Aggie Johnston, right hand woman to the eco-terrorist, who has begun to question her leader's motives.

Too Much

Would you try another book from Jack Du Brul and/or J. Charles?

Yes.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was well written with enough closure regarding all the main characters.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes.


Any additional comments?

The author(s) did not need to include so much adult sexually explicit material. It did nothing to cause me to want to recommend this book. Many great authors use implied concepts to express what this book stated in a blatant if not annoying way.

I kept waiting to like this book, never happened

The dialog is devoid of anything interesting. All the law enforcement people are dumb as a bag full of hair. The main character, whom you are supposed to like is a weird alcoholic that sees a woman at a formal dinner and comments on how he is becoming sexually aroused in public, and that is about it for his personality. The villein is able to kill large numbers of people associated with each other at will in public with an entourage and is impossible to spot. The president is a heroic meathead that decides, not only to ban all foreign oil imports but to also limit domestic production and cripple the entire United States and for that is treated as an heroic figure. If you have a brain, and blood is moving through enough of it so that you are not on life support you will hate this book.
