“Jack Du Brul has earned a reputation for some of the best eco-thrillers on the market. Charon’s Landing is exciting and crisp. One of the most entertaining tales of the year.” – Midwest Book Review
Ivan Kerikov, ex-leader of the KGB’s secret service division, has joined forces with a renegade Arab oil minister to control the supply of oil to the U.S. they plan to mount a coup in the minister’s home country, blow up the Alaska pipeline and crash a fully loaded supertanker in the San Francisco Bay. They’re helped by Aggie Johnston, the beautiful daughter of a petrochemical magnate, who feeds company secrets to the eco-terrorists.
But Kerikov hasn’t account for geologist Philip Mercer. Mercer knows all the right people in all the right places…or is it all the wrong people in all the wrong places? And he’s not about to let Kerikov cripple the U.S. politically, economically, and environmentally.
Can one man stop an army?
If that man is Philip Mercer…the odds are in the Free World’s favour.
“An intricate tale filled with action and intrigue where the stakes are high. Mercer is an action character with a brain, a penchant for beautiful women, and the ability to inspire respect and trust. Although his work is influenced by Clancy, Fleming, Cussler, and other masters of the genre, Du Brul’s is a fresh voice. Vulcan’s Forge is a fast-paced story well told” – The Cape Coral Daily Breeze
