(1977)

An ecological hellfire threatens the west coast of North America in this international thriller from the bestselling author of the WWIII novels.

In the early dawn fog off the coast of Southern Alaska, two million-ton tankers collide. Both are fully loaded: the American Kodiak with crude oil; the Russian Sakhalin with high octane. It's a nightmare scenario that becomes an international disaster of epic proportions when a single match ignites nearly two thousand square miles of ocean. As the firespill expands, threatening thousands of lives, everyone - from rescue teams to world leaders - are at the mercy of the currents.

Bestselling author Ian Slater's debut thriller is a gripping shockwave of a novel that "wrap[s] pure terror in a very readable package" (The Washington Post).

"As impelling a storyteller as you're likely to encounter." - Clive Cussler, New York Times - bestselling author of Havana Storm

"Slater deals effectively with social overtones and small human details (riots in Tokyo; the destruction of a rose garden) as with the progress of the flames." - The Washington Post
