Overview

A chilling high-concept geo-political thriller where a declining United States and a resurgent China come to the brink of all out nuclear war.

The year is 2025. Oil is the black gold that controls the fortunes of all nations and the once-mighty United States is down to the dregs. A giant oil field is discovered off the Tanzanian coast and the newly elected US President finds his solution to America’s ailing economy. While the US blindly plots and plans regime change in this hitherto insignificant African nation, Tanzania’s allies – the Chinese – start their own secret machinations. The explosion that follows shatters a decades-old balance of global power and triggers a crisis on American soil that the United States may not survive.

Political conspiracies, military maneuvers, and covert activities are woven together in this fast-paced, gripping novel that paints a stark warning of an uncomfortably likely future.
