The Scots have been fighting the English for centuries. To some extent they have succeeded; but Westminster still holds the reins of Power and Purse. For some time the Scottish National Party has existed, occasionally violently. Such occurred during the 1970s when petroleum was discovered in the North Sea, much offshore Scotland. The Scots have no direct ownership, though many staging areas exist in Scotland. Sabotage and destruction of infrastructure such as pipelines occurred. Deep Driller is a story of those exciting and sometimes dangerous times of discovery on and under that lonely, turbulent and at times malevolent sea.
