Overview

Petroleum geologist, Cortlandt Scott, has had a successful career in the rough and tumble Denver oil business. He's parlayed experience and some luck into "the good life" but is now experiencing burn out.

Seeking to take advantage of his Army ranger background while keeping his hand in the oil business, Cort decides to take a crack at becoming a private investigator. He figures his impressive business record and contacts in the oil community makes him a natural for detecting oil field crimes. He would like to concentrate on ferreting out fraudulent deals on drilling prospects.

Unfortunately, he's off to a slow start in attracting clients. Little can he imagine how much his life will change when young Evan Linfield, son of the ranching couple whose leases gave Cort his first big break, walks in his door.

How can Cort anticipate the danger filled path he is about to embark on? How can his nominally simple decision to make a career change result in soul searching self analysis of his own morals and motives? How can he live with the answers that he finds? All he knows is that the answers aren't what he wants to find out about himself.

Cort's learn-on-the-job investigative techniques don't sit well with his best friend, Denver homicide detective, Tom Montgomery. Long time girlfriend, Gerri German, is also nervous at the prospect of Cort taking on a case that may involve some shadowy organized crime figures.

His self indulgences and attitudes get him in trouble in more ways than one.

The world of oil and gas exploration and the people in it are almost bigger than life. The true life stories and characters populating this universe can truly be stranger than fiction. Join Cort Scott as he plunges headlong into this world in The Murder Prospect.
