“An Incident Off Mendocino Point” is a fast-paced action-adventure novel about a small group of courageous college classmates and their professor, who save the West Coast of America from nuclear-induced seismic destruction. The adventure begins when the students along with their professor volunteer to work on an innovative, ecologically-protective gas drilling operation off coast of Mendocino Point California. The unsuspecting students and their professor are recruited by a well-liked and respected former professor of their college, who is currently working with Global Gas Initiative. Global Gas Initiative is an international gas exploration consortium with a hidden agenda and a psychopathic means of satisfying their lust for financial gain. The students and professors sail to the drill site aboard the consortium’s drillship, the Oceania, and terrible trouble soon begins. One person quickly ends up dead under suspicious circumstances while another supposedly leaves the ship for a family emergency. The students gain an unexpected ally from the ship’s murderous staff. Together they battle the consortium’s wicked plan to extort a billion dollars from the United States government or else the consortium will destroy the West Coast and millions of lives through induced earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions.
