Fire on the Horizon : The Untold Story of the Gulf Oil Disaster
by Tom Shroder and John Konrad




Overview -

A phenomenal feat of journalism. . . . I tore through it like a novel but with the queasy knowledge that the whole damn thing is true. --Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm and War

Blending exclusive first-person interviews and penetrating investigative reporting, oil rig captain John Konrad and veteran Washington Post writer Tom Shroder give the definitive, white-knuckled account of the Deepwater Horizon explosion--as well as a riveting insider's view of the byzantine culture of offshore drilling that made the disaster inevitable. As the world continues to cope with the oil spill's grim aftermath--with environmental and economic consequences all the more dire in a region still rebuilding from Hurricane Katrina--Konrad and Schroder's real-time account of the disaster shows us just where things went wrong, and points the way to a safer future for us all.
