The year is 2017, and a crisis of catastrophic proportions is in the making. A conflict over oil has brought China and Japan to the brink of war — igniting a global chain reaction; the Saudi Arabian government is overthrown by a regime using oil as an economic weapon of mass destruction to blackmail the world. The chaos is compounded by terrifying new climate change information, a floundering global economy, and a terminally ill U.S. president. All the while, a small-town pastor tries to bring unity to her community — frightened citizens of Middle America — as gas prices skyrocket, the economy craters, and lifestyles around the globe change almost overnight. The clock is ticking as the two superpowers, China and the United States, decide whether to approach this perfect storm as friends or adversaries.
Mike Conley’s Lethal Trajectories explores a terrifying what if scenario based on extensive research and current geopolitical trends and world events. The conditions are ripe, and time is running out.
