Oil supplies begin to vanish without a trace and society starts to crumble!
Alex Cave quit the CIA for a less stressful life as a geophysics instructor. At least, that was his plan.
While on vacation sailing the waters of the Puget Sound, Alex sees a brilliant flash of neon blue light from an oil tanker and changes course to help. He discovers there was no explosion, no one on board, and the oil has mysteriously vanished without a trace. The bodies of the missing crew are found in the snow on Mount Baker, but there are no footprints leading in or out of the area.
Oil starts to disappear around the world, and the only clue is a dollar-size crystal found in the hold of an empty oil tanker.

I think that Clive Cussler may have a rival in this author. Alex Cave is something along the lines of Dirk Pitt in the Cussler Books. I really enjoyed reading this and will buy anymore that come out in this series or, by this author.
I give my highest recommendation to all Sci-Fi readers to get this book and enjoy!
Dead Energy is a page-turner. The premise is good. The mystery of the missing oil continues to build throughout the story, and the repercussions of what would happen seem plausible--that might be the most frightening part of the story.
Society starts to crumble, pitting human against human. There are enough details of the meltdown to give a person pause. McCorkill paints a bleak picture of what happens when the means to fuel our normal life is taken away from us. His description of what happens while the oil is vanishing is excellent.
His character building is good. I liked the central characters in the story--each unique and well-drawn. It was easy to get pulled in and empathize with them.
Alex Cave is a hero for the ages. He stuck with it, outwitting and outlasting the worst of the villains in the story. And I rooted for him the whole way through.
