Overview

World War I saw the advent of the mechanical age, as the war initiated the need for mechanized war tools. This new method of conducting war and moving soldiers around brought on the need for a new product: petroleum.

Foreseeing the future need of this fuel to operate machinery not only in wartime but also during peaceful times, and the potential power that would befall any one or any group that controlled the flow of this fuel, a group of ten powerful individuals banded together to form a cartel to obtain control of the world’s supply of this infant industry.

Over a period of years, through assassinations, political blackmail, legal and illegal maneuvering, this group began to exert dominance over the industry, and as the need for the fuel continued to expand, so did their control and their power. The cartel would allow nothing to stand in its way of obtaining total control, not U.S. Presidents, not World Dictators, not the Mafia, not even their own families. All had to be sacrificed to their god: Power.

As evidence of the existence of this powerful cartel began to leak, it became necessary that steps be taken to eliminate any possible threat of exposure, even if it meant assassinating the President of the United States, Senators, or world leaders. Unfortunately for the cartel, one of those assassinated was Scott, Susan Brandt’s lover and husband-to-be.

The granddaughter of her unknown Mafia grandfather who was himself assassinated, Susan received documents that revealed the presence and the details of the cartel, of which her grandfather was a member. Unaware of the existence of a grandfather, Susan was disbelieving of the revelations until she learned that the cartel had been responsible for Scott’s death. She used the contacts of her uncle, a U.S. Senator, to begin her quest for vengeance, and upon her uncle’s assassination, her determination for revenge became a all-consuming fire that wouldn’t subside until she was able to wreak havoc on those who had destroyed her life. Little did she realize that this pursuit for vengeance was just the beginning.
