“Oodles of action…now that’s what I call a thriller. Sizzling hot!”
—Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Disciple
“David Hagberg is a proven master of the thriller genre and Senator Byron Dorgan brings a unique, insider's view on politics and the world. Together they've woven a complicated tale, told deceptively simple, that will leave you wanting more. Plenty of sizzle in this page-turner.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key
“Combining masterly writing skills with deep knowledge of their subject, authors Dorgan and Hagberg serve up a unique, thought-provoking and, above all, ceaselessly exciting novel about today's hidden security threat: our willingness to overlook evil in our addiction to foreign energy supplies. The pace will make you sweat, the plot will make you think, and the peril is very real.”
—Ralph Peters, New York Times bestselling author of Cain at Gettysburg and The War After Armageddon
“Dorgan and Hagberg have written an edge-of-the-seat thriller about energy that will stretch your imagination and keep you guessing until the very last page.”
—Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle
“This book hits the bull's-eye on our energy challenge. How to end our addiction to foreign oil by finding new ways to produce energy here at home while at the same time protecting our environment? Blowout combines a healthy imagination about an energy future with fast-paced action.”
—Former Governor of New Mexico and U.S. Energy Secretary Bill Richardson
