Nicholas Marten has come face to face with the world's most dangerous men---secret global alliances that go back centuries and involve those at the highest ranks of political power and economic influence. Marten is a man on the run, constantly in fear of his life. He knows too much. He has no one to trust, except the one man who may be his only true friend . . . the President of the United States, John Henry Harris.
Now Marten finds himself pitted against the most wealthy and ruthless Texas oil barons and their blood-thirsty mercenaries. And what he witnesses puts him in the crosshairs of a massive conspiracy. At stake is an ocean of oil. Its cost could be thousands of human lives. Its cause, a top secret agreement known as "The Hadrian Memorandum."
