Night Probe Book Review

The planet faces an energy crisis of unprecedented proportions and the United States teeters on the brink of bankruptcy. Desperate to solve the energy crisis and ward off the pending fiscal disaster , the President of the United States enlists Dirk Pitt and NUMA for salvage operations that may just save the day.

The story takes place in 1989. The world is experiencing financial meltdown as a result of disappearing oil reserves and soaring energy bills. CIA predicts the depletion of Saudi Arabian and Middle Eastern oil only a couple of years away. No alternative fuel sources have been developed and there is no solution on the horizon.

Canada has become the sole provider of electricity for fifteen Northeastern states by investing billions in the creation of a new hydro-electric plant in Quebec. A potentially even greater Quebecois asset may have been recently discovered in the form of a stratigraphic trap, the richest form of oil deposit.

Not surprising, all of this has stirred the independence movement in Quebec to become once again loud and vocal. The Quebecois Member of Parliament Henri Villon leads the charge for independence from Canada, providing the newly elected Canadian Prime Minister Charles Sarveux with a political war on many fronts.
