AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sees the return of Ex-Navy operative Lachlan Fox. Now working as an investigative journalist, Lachlan Fox has been visiting some of the World's trouble spots. But a trip to Africa brings him face to face with a horror that could change him forever. Set in Nigeria, Venezuela, the US and UK the book is about terrorism, oil supply and poverty. The central ideas of Blood oil (as with all James Phelan's thrillers) come from world news and current affairs. From New York to Nigeria, London to Libya, Fox and his best mate Alistair Gammaldi race to unravel a sinister plan before each step is put into action. Lachlan Fox is going to prove, again, that there is a hero in all of us.'-Provided by publisher.
