Overview

Imagine you controlled something that everyone else in the world needed. How would you behave?

What if alternatives existed for your only product? Would you support their development and use, or would you seek to block them?

What if your only product was no longer needed by anyone? How would you make sure that never happened?

What steps would you be willing to take to make sure you weren't cut off from something you couldn't live without?

The answers to these questions and more will surprise you. Information hidden in plain sight, locations and situations that are more than they appear to be on the surface, and clandestine acts are the basis for this book. Straddling the line between fact and fiction, these stories are grounded in verifiable facts yet told with fictional events that cross into the space of conspiracy, and all amidst the backdrop of the global oil industry. From exploration to production, and manipulation to exploitation, no other other natural resource has controlled the human experience more than oil.
