The Quaker State Affair



Review by Nancy

Imagine a world where the Internet, banks, cell phones, TVs, etc. are down. Permanently. The world would have gone to the gold standard (you might want to start stocking up on that, by the way). This is the pretty scary part of The Quaker State Affair.

Physics is an interesting subject and it takes a bit of brain power to go through some parts of this story but it is well worth it. The premise: a nuclear physicist who retired a few years back is needed to solve an issue – someone has created energy which can be sighted and fired into other countries – like China. The Chinese government is understandably not happy when one of their nuclear plants is blown to bits and naturally blames the US. Problem? We didn’t do it.

A too cautious President, an election year issue, and Mac the “mad scientist” all pool their resources to solve this problem – until the President over reaches his powers and involves Mac in a “show and tell” event which puts a bulls-eye on his back. The end issue is something I personally have dreams about.

Mac, his buddy Ben, a DOD agent named Barlow and her boss and a beautiful black Lab named Lady all make this book come alive with human touches, government games and scientific know-how. A great read! I really enjoyed it and hope you will as well.
