A determined oil driller uses an illegal fracking method, causing a devastating earthquake and fire which destroys much of San Antonio. Cave explorers, Jesse and Jake, are trapped in the dark with a monster crocodile, long thought to be extinct – Aquasaurus – a forty-foot, 8-ton descendent of Carnufex – “The Butcher”. World-class rock climber, Rita, must overcome her lifelong fear of darkness to rescue her boyfriend Jesse. A state senator must juggle her fear losing a child, with the greater need of thousands of disaster survivors. A businessman must deal with the fear of losing a business his dying father spent a lifetime building. Why is Rita afraid of the dark? What happens when Aquasaurus escapes from the cave system and runs loose among disaster survivors? What will happen if the dangerous crocodile escapes into the Gulf of Mexico? Fear can cause people to react in unpredictable ways. Fear can distort judgment, and cause likeable people to commit irrational acts. Fear can masquerade as bravado. Fear can paralyze. Fear can provide a cover for the truth. The problem with fear, is we think fear is the problem. Everyone has a fear of something. What are you afraid of?

“The Problem with Fear Is….”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Lynnibo

Ernie Lee has a way with words. A way that draws you in and intrigues you, until you can’t put his book down. Suspenseful, with a realism that makes you feel like you know these characters and you are rooting for them to win. Whether it’s to blast out some rock to find oil, or just to conquer a mountain range while climbing it, or fighting for their lives, they all have the odds against them. Do they come out winners? Or does fear win? You’ll have to read it and meet Aquasaurus yourself. It all takes place in central Texas, and the circumstances here were right for the “perfect storm” of this 8-foot high, 40-foot long monster to appear. If you liked the movie “San Andreas,” then this will evoke similar feelings. Ernie Lee’s expert phrasing and colorful character portrayals makes it hard to put down!
