Benjamin Bone has worked on oil rigs around the world. A chance of a job leads him to Houston where an oil company plans to drill a multi-million dollar well deep in the desert beneath the towering cliffs of the Yemeni plateau.
Returning to England after his interview he spots a briefcase on the carousel at London airport. Sure it was left for him by a man he saw at the oil company offices, he takes it, unaware that the actions of this insignificant company could impact the future of America. And then his friend is murdered because of what the case contains.
Benjamin is plunged into a situation with a horrifying dimension, accused of multiple crimes, sought by the police and trapped in a battle with hired killers. With the help of Natalya, a travel agent from Singapore, he attempts to flee to Yemen to find the truth.
In a backdrop of civil war Benjamin is thrown into a world of feudal clans, ambitious politicians, corrupt company officials and people just trying to do their high risk jobs. And now Natalya, angry that Benjamin has kept secrets from her, wants nothing more to do with him.
Can Benjamin find answers before it is too late to save himself, and to save Natalya? He must do something fast and he must do it alone or his first trip to Yemen could be his last trip anywhere. Confused, blamed, and desperate, Benjamin is on a collision course with disaster in a world where the power of oil knows no borders.
