Damon Pierce's life is crumbling. The talented California attorney's wife is divorcing him and his work often seems soulless. So when he receives a frantic email from Marissa Brand Okari, a woman he loved years ago, he decides to risk everything and respond to her plea for help.

Marissa's husband, Bobby Okari, is the charismatic leader of a freedom movement in Luandia, West Africa, a nation that's being torn apart by the world's craving for its vast oil supply. When Bobby stages a protest against a giant American oil company with close ties to Luandia's brutal government, all hell breaks loose. Everyone in Bobby's home village is massacred and Bobby is thrown in jail. Pierce agrees to defend Bobby, but the lethal politics of Luandia could cost him his own life.



Baker & Taylor
California lawyer Damon Pierce finds his own life in danger when he accepts a desperate plea from his former lover to defend her freedom fighter husband against bogus charges involving the corrupt government of the oil-rich nation of Luandia.

i agree with previous comment..took me days to get thru 60 pages but then the plot thickened and it ended up being a good read.

I admire Richard North Patterson's work, but I just could not get into this book 'Eclipse'. It is too preachy, bangs on about the oil industry's violations, the political corruption, and environmental devastation ad nauseum... After 60 pages I was so bored I had to put it down. I don't mind a book which has an important issue to expose, but I do need a bit more in the way of a story line, and a bit more action to get me interested and keep me reading to the end.
