Lachlan Fox . . . on a bad day he's the man you need
Oil prices are rocketing. Terror attacks have destabilised the global economy. The White House believes the Nigerian oil fields are the key to safeguarding America's future . . . but someone else sees them as an opportunity to increase their own power.
Enter Lachlan Fox: graduate of ADFA; ex-Navy Clearance Diver; served in Iraq, East Timor and Afghanistan; international investigative journalist. The right man for the wrong place.
Travelling from New York to Nigeria, Fox is hunting the story. He's seen combat action before, but this time it's personal. Wrestling with demons that push him right to the edge and leave him exposed like never before, will Fox uncover the truth in time? Or will his quest for revenge see him go too far?
