What’s it about?
Abandoned by his father, orphaned by his drug-addled mother, and devastated by the murder of his sister, Michael McKeon was once a hardened “street dog who learned to play in traffic.” Years later, Michael, now a Bowdoin College professor of microbiology with a wife and adopted daughter, creates a microbe that instantly cleans up any oil spill, no matter how large, by devouring the oil. That discovery should’ve been the breakthrough that defines a career. Instead, Michael’s life falls apart when The Global Group kidnaps his wife and daughter, forcing him to use his microbe to destroy all Saudi and Russian oil. As Michael races against the clock to save his family, he becomes a threat to the secret efforts of the American, Russian and Saudi governments to douse the flames in the Middle East by implementing a new Marshall Plan.
