The Brotherhood of the Red Nile: America Rebuilds by Dan Perkins

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF A NUCLEAR BOMB WAS DETONATED NEAR A CLUSTER OF OIL REFINERIES? From the president’s airplane window, he sees oil refineries lie as white-hot glowing rubble in what was the Texas City of Texas City. Cracking towers lie toppled on pipelines above the ground now carrying radiation contaminated energy toward all parts of the United States. The fires are being fed by row after row of massive storage tanks. One of the tanks explodes, sending the massive roof thousands of feet into the air and then the one next to it explodes because of the heat from the one that just exploded. As the president watches, the next one blows like another domino falling. As the pilot veers to escape the heat from the blast, a third explosion sends a shock wave, hitting the plane. General Maxwell will save the plane from the bomb aftermath. But as he brings the president back to Washington, the millrems gauge reading threatens disaster that they all may…

This story starts with a nuclear bomb being detonated in one of the main oil refineries in Texas. If course you have the basic destruction of things being blow up, people being killed, and high levels of radiation. But the master mind behind this plan, all of the contaminated oil is still being pumped through the various pipelines for the country.

This oil is only a couple miles away from the main hubs where the pressure is going to blast all that oil through out the whole country contaminating everything within a couple miles of each line. The real problem is there is no way to for sure stop that flow of oil, no main kill switch. And even if they could stop the flow of oil, what are we supposed to do without oil and the by-products.

I have not read the first book but that has not affected this review at all. This book is amazing! Just the concept of such a planned out attack, I never even would have thought about that as something that we faced. There is so much detail about what is happening that you just get sucked into the story. And if that wasn’t enough, at the end of each short chapter you learn how far the oil has to go before getting to each major point in the pipeline.

This book is scary good. You have to read it!
