D.S. Speer, a London-born former marketing executive in the international auto racing industry and CEO in the bio-remediation industry currently living with his elderly Labrador in Tomball, Texas, has completed his book “Cold Tap: A Darius Rhodes Adventure”: a spellbinding novel richly detailed with insider knowledge of the oil and bioremediation technology.

‘Cold Tap’ is a partially fictionalized account of the author’s nine year experience bringing a new live enzyme bio-technology to market. The novel addresses the difficulties in penetrating a mature economy that has historically sought remedies through chemicals. It also addresses the problems of a small American company attempting to penetrate a third world economy mired in corrupt bureaucracies.

The business story line merges with the story of a highly placed family of Nigerian bureaucrats who have gamed the system for a huge sum of money. The patriarch is assassinated days before the family’s retirement to Provence.

The Cold Tapping epidemic is real and its existence is used as a vehicle for clan vengeance.
So far in 2019 four cold tapping incidents have been reported internationally accounting for over 150 deaths and losses totaling over four billion dollars.

The author has lived the business and scientific aspects of the novel for the past nine years, and has lived the ‘Third World’ aspects for the last six years. He gives the reader a firsthand glimpse into the convoluted world of Nigerian government, politics, and industry. Additionally there is a look at the operational policies of transnational energy companies in developing nations.

Since the author’s expertise is in business and marketing, the writing is succinct and unambiguous. If the reader expects flowery, emotion evoking, five thousand word descriptive passages, he or she will be disappointed.

However, if the reader is the least bit cynical and understands the concepts of FUBAR and SNAFU, he or she will love ‘Cold Tap’.

‘Cold Tap’ is backstopped by over seven thousand e-mails and documents from the author’s files.

D.S. Speer is available for interviews via telephone, dss(at)1956hotmail(dot)com, 713-824-9401.

Readers who wish to experience this engrossing work can purchase “Cold Tap: A Darius Rhodes Adventure” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
