Following the price rises in 1973, the race is on to find more oil and cash in. Banker James Tangred and Cameron Russell, an intrepid wildcatter, set out to locate and tap the huge reserves of this black gold – rumored to lie beneath the deserts of a small Middle Eastern country. But as soon as they arrive they realize their mission is not going to be an easy one. Not only do they have to adapt to the whims and caprices of the Kerawani Prince, but they must vie for his favor against a Machiavellian Dutch trader already embedded in the very heart of the Royal Court. Mia Blanken, with a volatile mixture of sexual allure and sharp business sense, has rapidly succeeded in becoming a big player in oil brokerage: when she sets her sights on something, or someone – she gets them. Blanken picks up the scent of black gold in New York, and she wants in. But her greed may well be her undoing when she decides to break the inviolable trading deal – the ‘back to back’ contract. A dramatic novel that reveals the true nature of the oil industry.  The story follows the adventures of the oil banker, the wildcatter, and the female oil trader as they work to develop the oil resources of Kerawan.  They also must deal with unscrupulous and greedy oilmen from Texas, foreign oil companies, and other assorted characters competing for the riches of Kerawan. The adventure follows the characters across the globe– Middle East, Europe, Texas, New York and beyond.A fictional account, although based on personal experiences of the author.
