More toe-curling adventures from the oil fields. Hectic, hellraising and hilarious, world-class rig-pig Paul Carter's at it again: breaking machinery, defying death and causing mayhem - Just another glorious day in the oilfield! This time, he's stuck in the middle of the Russian sea on a rig staffed by a crew from Azerbaijan. The choppers are older than him and can only fly by line of sight, turning back regularly due to the weather which gets particularly interesting when they are past the point of no return with half their fuel gone and are committed to finding the rig in a fog that's thicker than soup. The closest thing to a hotel for miles around is 'the Asylum', a former soviet mental institution that now houses offshore personnel en-route to the rig, where his room mates are Vodka Bob, who drinks Guinness for breakfast when he's not on the rig, Sick Boy, who snores like a pit bull being hot-waxed, and the aptly-named Seal-basher. In his inimitable style Paul Carter regales us with his colourful adventures from the front line of the oil industry and the far side of civilization!
