About the Book

When law firm associate Jake Green is called in to assist with the investigation of a major American oil company and star client, North Petroleum, he quickly finds himself embroiled in a global power struggle. U.S. Attorney Arthur Benson is convinced that North is behind a recently uncovered mass grave in the Middle East, while North’s power-broker CEO Bruno Sinclair is equally determined to snuff out the investigation...and anyone else who gets in his way.

As the investigation in New York barrels forward, North's activities unravel in the Middle East, where American recruits working for a private security contractor are finding themselves increasingly ensnared by the violence that surrounds them. But could the trials and tribulations of a couple nobodies like Jim Gavins and Chuck Murphy be behind the investigation of a major American corporation?

As Jake and his cohorts uncover the truth about North’s dealings, the circles of violence begin to close in on them, and they soon find that they must make a choice about what becomes of them in this world.
