"The Oil Man" by Leon Puissegur
- Nov. 2, 2012 -
In "The Oil Man," avid conspiracy theorist John Marx, supervisor on an oil derrick in the Gulf of Mexico, comes into possession of an errant email and box containing a mysterious crystal shard that together change first his, then the world's point of view about oil. It all comes down to not who controls the world's petroleum supply, but who people, corporations and governments think control it. Tempers explode, guns flare, people die, all due to an email and a piece of crystal.
Leon Puissegur is a happily-married Vietnam Veteran with nine grandchildren and three children. He has three books in print, not including this one.
"As a writer and author, I've been involved in a love-hate fight all my life with my last name, “Puissegur,"
feeling the need to defend my unique Louisiana French heritage, despite a name few Americans could read, much less spell or remember easily. Interestingly, it was this peculiar last name that led me to research not only my family history, but my own fascination with conspiracy theory and, in Louisiana, it's very heart and soul: oil. In the process it became clear that I had a special message to convey through fiction," says Puissegur. "For 'The Oil Man, I drew heavily upon my union experience to animate the characters, corporate, management and workers, of the offshore oil environment in which much of 'The Oil Man' is set."
