Overview

Set in the heart of Texas, Black Rock is riveting family saga of greed, betrayal, and redemption.

Born into one of the last of the great Independent Oil & Gas dynasties of the twentieth century, Tommy is the only son of a cold, hard, self-made oilman, Colonel Richard Ellison. Groomed from birth as his father's successor to the empire, he grows up in a life of power and privilege hiding a dark family secret from the world. After law school, he joins the family business, but his dreams of prestige and esteem are soon crushed following the untimely death of his mother, as he is forced to share the family fortune with his half-sister and her children. Impatiently bidding his time while his elderly father's health slowly declines, Tommy finds himself disillusioned and swept up in a drug crazed whirlwind until an unforeseen turn of events threatens to destroy everything he holds dear.

After the death of his father, Tommy becomes obsess with protecting the family's oil fortune at all costs. But eventually, he faces the consequences of his own actions and the reality that the misguided sins of his youth come to light and adversely affect his relationship with children. As turmoil in his life spills over into the lives of his children he finds himself helpless to save his son from his misdeeds, he soon faces the cost of choosing fortune over family.
