The Black: A Deep Sea Thriller Publisher's Summary

Under 30,000 feet of water, the exploration rig Leaguer has discovered an oil field larger than Saudi Arabia. The oil is so sweet and pure, nations would go to war for the rights to it.

As the team starts drilling one exploration well after another in their race to claim the sweet crude, a deep rumbling beneath the ocean floor shakes them all to their core. Something has been living in the oil, and it's about to give birth to the greatest threat humanity has ever seen.

The Black is a techno/horror-thriller that puts the horror and action of movies such as Leviathan and The Thing right into listeners' ears. Ocean exploration will never be the same.

    As the unsuspecting scientists at HAL await the arrival of the oil, they ready their lab for what they know is an important job. They've seen the test results from Leaguer; this find could make history. While the barrel is on its way to Houston, an "infection" breaks out on the far-away rig. And as life aboard the rig descends into chaos, the scientists at HAL make their own discovery - what Leaguer found is indeed historic; it just isn't oil. Instead, they've brought up a dangerous organism that could threaten all life on Earth.
