About Blowout: Former Senator Byron L. Dorgan and acclaimed novelist David Hagberg collaborate on a highconcept thriller about America’s dangerous addiction to foreign oil—a dependency that could cripple our economy and our ecosystem.
America is on the brink of crisis. Unless we can curb our appetite for foreign oil, petroleum-rich countries and speculators will bring our economy to its knees. The president has answered the call with the Dakota District Initiative, a top secret research team which is developing a way to produce clean energy from coal.
But powerful enemies will stop at nothing to sabotage this revolutionary technology. A ruthless oil hedge fund manager orders a brutal assault on the Initiative’s experimental power station. War hero Sheriff Nate Osborne and brash journalist Ashley Borden search for the attackers as the research continues.
The stakes couldn’t be higher: If the Initiative succeeds, OPEC will hoard petroleum and gas prices will skyrocket. If the project fails, our economy and our planet face collapse. Either way, the Badlands will run red with blood.
