Against The Current (Paperback)
Tom and Dave Craft were finishing the remodeling of their grandparents beautiful old home when Tom finds a hidden box containing long lost information about his grandfather's rumored invention. Not Just any invention, this was what the world must have to survive; a new form of clean and inexhaustible energy. Their grandfather, Thomas Cunningham, and his invention disappeared just before World War 1 and were never heard of again, until now. The family stories held that an oil company buried him and the technology back then in order to parlay its fossil fuel monopoly into world domination. United Oil Company did just that and is now at the apex of its power. It never stopped watching the family for any signs that the invention might resurface because if it did, it would be the end of their energy monopoly and power. No expense was spared suppressing the technology for nearly a century and it would do anything to keep it that way. Tom immediately realizes the danger his find represents, as well as the awesome responsibility. Aided by his family and a very old and powerful secret society created by many of our country's founding fathers, Tom survives various attacks from the oil company in an effort to complete his grandfather's dream of providing the world with a new energy source.
