"Author Dave Edlund has created a compelling, five-star novel filled with intrigue and mystery. The story keeps you on the edge of your seat anticipating the laws of'unintended consequences'..." Pacific Book Review
"The book is fast-paced and lively, reminiscent of a Tom Clancy thriller, with locations and action taking place all over the globe." The US Review of Books
When one by one the world’s leading experts on alternative energy is assassinated, a trail of deadly clues winds through DC, Moscow, and Caracas. With Russia’s recent invasion of Crimea, the plot to author Dave Edlund’s latest political thriller reads less like fiction and more like a chilling echo of world events.
In Crossing Savage Edlund, a leading expert in alternative energy, brings readers face to face with the promise of energy independence––and its true cost. In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, Peter Savage and his friend Jim Nicolaou race against the clock to preserve the energy secret that promises to change the landscape of the world… or start a global war.
With a plot that seems ripped from today’s headlines, author Dave Edlund presents the theory of abiogenic oil production and the terrifying array of consequences that accompany the pursuit of energy independence.
