A Burning Fuse.

An emerald oasis surrounded by a sea of glittering blue, the Sultanate of Brunei sits on a mother lode of oil harvested by the most powerful conglomerates in the world. Then, in one horrific moment, paradise is blown to hell.

A Raging Fire.

AK-47s are poised to take over the capitol. Sea oil rigs burst into flames, while one is wired to explode…with hostages aboard. And in the palace, where ministers have become traitors and friends have become executioners, the royal family is herded into captivity.

A Searing Battle For Survival.

Now, as the international community scrambles for cover and a Japanese supertanker is hijacked by rebels, a handful of Americans arm themselves with every weapon they can find, and plan an impossible counterattack. Because in a land running with blood, in a world paralyzed by fear and politics, a few brave men and women must spearhead a war against an enemy who can set the whole world on fire.

About William H. Lovejoy:

William H. Lovejoy is the author of twenty thriller, suspense, and mystery novels with publications in English, Japanese, Spanish, and Hebrew.

As a "master storyteller" according to Clive Cussler, Lovejoy has a penchant for taking a current event and projecting it into the near future, with a twist-a new super airport for Hong Kong, a takeover of Antarctica, superegos battling on the Internet. His stories are richly detailed with the culture of place as well as the high technology that may threaten it. And since events never take place in a vacuum, Lovejoy's novels are flavored with the multiple layers of the governments and bureaucracies that influence decisions and affect individual actions. Nelson DeMille reviewed China Dome as "A nice blend of high-tech, corporate espionage, subterfuge, and sabotage. A very rewarding read; tightly plotted, well-written, and thoroughly engaging."

An army brat born at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, Lovejoy grew up in Nebraska, Montana, and Colorado. He worked his way through degrees at Colorado State University as an interior designer and graduate teaching assistant. He is a Vietnam veteran and has served as a college assistant professor of English, a state college president, a college system chief fiscal officer, and a management consultant. He resides in Arizona, where he is vice president for administration at Mohave Community College.

A frequent commentator for writing workshops, he has taught writing as an adjunct faculty member of the University of Northern Colorado, and as a faculty member of the Pikes Peak Writers' Conference. Lovejoy is a member of Mystery Writers of America, and has written non-fiction articles for The Writer and Writer's Digest.
