The tanker left Valdez Alaska with a full load of heavy crude oil for a routine trip down to Washington State, until the crew brings the ship into the Puget Sound. One crew person manages to scream for help on the emergency frequency, but it is too late. When the U.S. Coast Guard arrives to investigate, a lone man is standing at the railing, but he is not part of the crew. His name is Alex Cave, a vacationing geology instructor who had seen a brilliant flash of light around the tanker and also responded to the distress call. When Alex explains to the Coast Guard Captain that the ship is deserted and the crude oil has mysteriously vanished without a trace, the Captain thinks he’s mad, until he learns Alex is also ex-CIA and advisor to the Director of National Security.
The next day the Coast Guard frantically searches for the massive spill, but cannot find a trace of the oil, and the corpses of the crew are discovered frozen on a mountain, one-hundred miles away. Soon panic grips the Pacific Northwest when the oil in the Alaska pipeline and west coast refineries mysteriously disappears. Transportation of basic necessities cannot reach the cities and common citizens turn to primal instincts to survive. The only clue Alex has to work with is a dollar size crystal found in the hold of the empty oil tanker. Can Alex solve the mystery before it’s too late? Or will the world succumb to . . . DEAD ENERGY.
