About Blowout:

America is on the brink of crisis. Unless we can curb our dangerous appetite for foreign oil, petroleum-rich countries and speculators will bring our economy to its knees…long before CO2 emissions will devastate our ecosystem. The President has answered the call with the Dakota District Initiative, a top secret research team hidden deep in the Badlands of North Dakota. The Initiative is developing a way to produce clean energy from coal.

But powerful enemies will stop at nothing to sabotage this revolutionary technology. A cadre of oil hedge fund managers hires a crew of mercenary fanatics to attack the Initiative’s experimental power station. Despite the bloody assault, the research continues as war-hero sheriff Nate Osborne and brash journalist Ashley Borden search for the attackers.

The stakes couldn’t be higher: Unless the Initiative succeeds we could be faced with gasoline at twenty dollars per gallon or more, putting an impossible strain on an already fragile economy. If the project fails, we will continue to poison the very air we breathe. Either way, the Badlands will run red with blood.

“Oodles of action…now that’s what I call a thriller. Sizzling hot!” —Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Disciple

“David Hagberg is a proven master of the thriller genre and Senator Byron Dorgan brings a unique, insider’s view on politics and the world. Together they’ve woven a complicated tale, told deceptively simple, that will leave you wanting more. Plenty of sizzle in this page-turner.” —Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key

“Combining masterly writing skills with deep knowledge of their subject, authors Dorgan and Hagberg serve up a unique, thought-provoking and, above all, ceaselessly exciting novel about today’s hidden security threat: our willingness to overlook evil in our addiction to foreign energy supplies. The pace will make you sweat, the plot will make you think, and the peril is very real.” —Ralph Peters, New York Times bestselling author of Cain at Gettysburg and The War After Armageddon

“Dorgan and Hagberg have written an edge-of-the-seat thriller about energy that will stretch your imagination and keep you guessing until the very last page.” —Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle

“This book hits the bull’s-eye on our energy challenge. How to end our addiction to foreign oil by finding new ways to produce energy here at home while at the same time protecting our environment? Blowout combines a healthy imagination about an energy future with fast-paced action.” —Former Governor of New Mexico and U.S. Energy Secretary Bill Richardson
