Erin Neal has been living a secluded life in the Arizona desert since the death of his girlfriend and he isn't happy when an oil company executive comes calling. A number of important Saudi oil wells have stopped producing and Erin is the world’s foremost expert in resolving just these kinds of complications. 

Erin quickly finds himself stuck in the Saudi desert studying a new bacteria with a voracious appetite for oil and an uncanny talent for destroying drilling equipment. It soon becomes clear that if this contagion isn't stopped, it will infiltrate the world’s petroleum reserves, cutting the industrial world off from the energy that provides the heat, food, and transportation necessary for survival. As the threat becomes more real, Erin realizes that there’s something eerily familiar about this bacteria. And that it couldn't possibly have evolved on its own.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Masterful thriller writer Mills returns to his series hero, former FBI agent Mark Beamon (last seen in 2002’s Sphere of Influence), with a pulse-pounding apocalyptic scenario that is terrifying in its plausibility…Mills’s meticulous research, pacing and carefully developed characters make this variation particularly convincing.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Mills has done it again: another up-all-night read (with nightmares to follow).”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mitzi | 1/18/2014

    " Nicely done thriller about a terrorist plot involving oil-eating bacteria. It paints a good picture about what the world will look like when oil runs out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Wes Derby | 1/16/2014

    " Very well written book. When it came out, I think a lot of us could have seen what ended up happening at the end of this book actually happening. And frankly, in our current political climate, it could still happen. Well worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Amber | 1/15/2014

    " I have to admit that I love pulp political thrillers, and Kyle Mills is my favorite author in that genre. This book is pretty interesting, it poses the question - what would happen if the world were faced with a 35% drop in oil production in just 4 months. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Wynter | 1/8/2014

    " This is a book about terrorists putting a bacteria into the water injectors of oil wells and affecting the world's oil supply. It was VERY interesting and I ended up increasing my food storage at home after reading this book! I also love FBI/CIA novels, so this fit the bill for me. "
