Youíd be rejoiced and celebrated around the planet, right? Well, perhaps; but then again, perhaps not! Imagine, if you can, the response from the international oil industry and OPEC. Would they celebrate your discovery? Would your employer or government step in to help you, or would they be more concerned with the potential catastrophic fracture of critical international economic and military power foundations?
Think about it, because this is such a story. Itís David vs. Goliath; Big Oil against resolute individuals. Three young men determined to deliver this discovery to the world and protect whatís theirs in the process. Fracture Gradient is a heroic tale of discovery and greed that fractures a critical economic paradigm, threatens the international balance of power, and challenges the concept of rugged individualism.
From the oilfields of Texas and the sands of the Middle East, Fletcher Boyd, Hollis Cade, and Steve Addison are relentlessly deceived, manipulated, brutalized, and hunted by powerful corporations, governments, and OPEC adversaries hell-bent on controlling the discovery that could eviscerate the global energy industry. Their efforts are thrown into chaos when rumors insidiously circumvent the globe and trigger a tsunami of violence, military intervention, and cover-up. Only the ultimate deception might save the international balance of power from a brute-force fracture of alarming proportion, and the men and their families from certain death. But can they pull it off? This story is carefully interwoven with historical fact and will leave you with an important question: Has this already happened and been hidden from the public?
