       Additional Information  
      After The Depression II, an economic resurgence all based on refitting the mechanics of the petroleum economy caused a few new fortunes to arise but people were employed, unlike other times when so many sat idle in endless, angry meetings. It was the aim of the government at this time to plan the changeover, getting organized, producing items based on some retrofit but mostly an array of new products as the economy got moving again.

    Maybe as read in the history books of a later time, but damn hard to get through if youíre a participant. Try this scenario: the government is the biggest employer and thatís smaller than the unemployed. Federal payments are slowing down and our food exports are grinding to a halt. Who put the brakes on the economy?

    Alternative fuel research is a priority and those working that job were well paid but some paid with their lives in a sabotage explosion that left the Head Tech running for her life in a decimated Las Vegas.

    Federal authorities call in army intelligence in the form of Alonso Belen, a fast operator who locates the Head Tech Paige and brings her safely back to the fort, but thatís only the beginning...

    It comes down to one question: Who would want to delay the economic recovery?

    Alonso and Paige face the future together, a temporary thing, they tell each otherÖ
