“If you're looking for big business wheeling-and dealing, international intrigue, murder, mayhem and high-geared action, you've come to the right place.

Toss in a charming and nervy protagonist like Lynn Dayton and L.A. Starks' STRIKE PRICE is right on the money. Well-written, well-plotted and well worth a reader's time...”

Strike Price takes the reader from Oklahoma Indian reservations to the streets of Florence, in an imaginative and well informed fusion of oil refining economics, Native American politics, and the potential for lethal mayhem in the global energy market.”

13 Days: The Pythagoras Conspiracy

What could spike gasoline prices even further?

What would the world look like if nothing worked? Energy executive Lynn Dayton thinks her challenge is fixing the troubled refinery her company has just acquired on the Houston Ship Channel. But soon she must save it, and other oil refineries, from the industrial havoc and deaths directed by a French saboteur, simultaneously fighting off threats to her own life.

As Lynn deals with chemical leaks, disloyal employees, a new season of hurricanes, and mounting casualties, Robert Guillard, a corrupted idealist, plans to manipulate her through her vulnerable sister.

But Robert underestimates his prey.


“I loved the whole plot because I found it to be very unique. The characters were very realistic and I loved how the story is told from both the protagonist and villain's point of view.”
