Publisher's Summary

Oil is the lifeblood of America.
Some see it as poisonous to the planet.
How far will both sides go as a battle rages over Black Gold?

International best-selling author, Bobby Akart, one of America's favorite storytellers, delivers up-all-night thrillers to readers in 245 countries and territories worldwide.

A guerrilla war rages between the petroleum industry and eco-terrorists. As the violence escalates Texas oil producers fight back. The battle takes an unexpected turn, one that impacts every Texan and all of America. How far will both sides go in the fight over Black Gold?

The Texas Forever trilogy depicts the petroleum industry under attack from radical environmental terrorists. From extraction to refining to distribution, the conflict over BLACK GOLD as crude oil has been nicknamed, is subjected to violent tactics in an attempt to stem the nation's use of fossil fuels.

In Texas, independent oil producers fight back. As the saying goes, they're mad as hell and they aren't gonna take it anymore.

With the eco-terrorists stymied in their efforts and suffering casualties as well, they turn to another battlefield - cyber warfare. Tensions escalate and as the eco-terrorists achieve success, they decide to go big or go home. They set their sights on ERCOT - the Texas power grid.

This is the story of all out war between the oil industry and radical environmentalists who will learn not to mess with Texas. However, just as the battle appears to be won, another entity puts it's thumbs on the scale.

Million-copy best-selling author, Bobby Akart, delivers intense, up-all-night thrillers that have you whispering just one more chapter until the end.

Eco-Terrorists enter the fray

Akart created a unique and enjoyable book. Yellowstone meets Big Oil, meets cyber terrorists.

Thought provoking and unique. Highly recommended.
