Cajun-born Jock Boucher has overcome modest beginnings to assume the prestigious position of U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Louisiana. One of his first cases on the bench involves a scientist who has been hiding in mortal fear for more than twenty years. The fugitive claims that another judge accepted bribes and helped a relentless global energy company steal his intellectual property: a way to recover energy from below the sub-sea bed that could end America's dependence on foreign oil.Boucher takes on the company and its powerful founder, risking not only his judicial career but his life. He follows a trail of cryptic clues to the bottom of the ocean, and soon finds himself the target of killers-and too far from the law to ever return.Packed with suspense, science, politics, and murder, this fast-paced, riveting thriller will have listeners on the edge of their seats.

"Michael Kramer gives an elegant, stately performance of this mystery by new writer David Lyons. Kramer delivers sumptuous details of the New Orleans food, restored antiques, gardens, and homes of U.S. District Judge Jock Boucher. Boucher is thrust in the middle of the race to extract the world's next major energy source, methane hydrate, from below the ocean's floor. Kramer portrays the judge with an aristocratic tone, in spite of his humble Cajun upbringing. Together Lyons and Kramer take listeners from the tops of New Orleans skyscrapers to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean in this Cajun-spiced story of corruption. S.C.
