Publisher's Summary

Cajun-born Jock Boucher has overcome modest beginnings to assume the prestigious position of U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Louisiana. One of his first cases on the bench involves a scientist who has been hiding in mortal fear for more than 20 years. The fugitive claims that another judge accepted bribes and helped a relentless global energy company steal his intellectual property: a way to recover energy from below the sub-sea bed that could end America's dependence on foreign oil.

Boucher takes on the company and its powerful founder, risking not only his judicial career but his life. He follows a trail of cryptic clues to the bottom of the ocean, and soon finds himself the target of killers-and too far from the law to ever return. Packed with suspense, science, politics, and murder, this fast-paced, riveting thriller will have listeners on the edge of their seats.

One of my favorite books!

Just the right amount of details in the writing and was not completely out of reach of reality! I have not recommended to a friend that didn't enjoy it.

So much research! Really enjoyed this book!

Beyond the fact that this is a fun story with lots of suspenseful plot twists, I enjoyed the incredible research the author obviously put into this thriller. I was not expecting to learn so much about energy extraction methods, New Orleans culture and history, and even herpetology. I look forward to the next book by this author. I'm a fan.
