Overview

Red-hot oilfield fiction.
The Casinghead Company is a story of two conflicted personalities, both driven to succeed in high stakes industries (oil & gas and motion pictures). These two people have been married to each other for more than 20 years. The hero is rich, handsome and dangerous. The heroine, his wife, is beautiful, equally rich, jealous to a fault and a martinet as far as her children are concerned. The hero has a lover that he tried to keep under wraps but little by little, he is losing control of the situation. The supporting cast includes all types of oilfield workers, including executives and roughnecks. Also present are "Hollywood hopefuls." A notorious witch who happens to be a good friend of the Venezuelan dictator plays a key role in obtaining government permits. She uses her magic powers to subjugate her lover who is a disgraced ex-employee of the hero. While the hero is developing an oilfield in Venezuela, his wife is making a spaghetti western in Italy. She is blackmailed and kidnapped. The hero's secret lover is caught in this web. The plot is resolved when the hero and his aides rush to the rescue of the heroine and the lover. Action takes place in Los Angeles, Maracaibo, Paris, Monte Carlo, Ventimiglia and Biarritz.
