Waiting for minimum critic reviews


United Gas CEO Lester Thomson is tired of paying taxes on a tract of land he considers a useless asset. Located seventy miles from Houston, the land sits idle save for the lignite deposits beneath its surface. But if there’s a way to generate revenue from a couple of hundred acres, Lester will certainly entertain the idea.

For once, Roger Murray, an impractical yet brilliant engineer, proposes a viable option. Two scientists have unwittingly stumbled upon genetically-modified super-termites that chew up lignite to produce natural gas. Roger suggests they use the technology to turn Lester’s land into something wildly profitable.

As hard as project manager Frank Mitchell tries, he can’t find a fatal flaw in what he initially waves off as another farfetched idea. He pulls together an unlikely group to implement the plan, among them professor Jennifer Watson, whose intelligence and beauty motivate Frank to come to terms with his past and future.

No one suspects that terrorists in mundane yet strategically placed positions of power will mobilize to sabotage the plan because it threatens the world’s dependence on oil. BIOGAS! is a genuinely satisfying combination of science, intrigue, and romance.
