Review: The Quaker State Affair by Dan Romain

The Quaker State Affair Book Summary

What happens when “some day” finally arrives?

A mysterious explosion in Taiwan. Nuclear secrets stolen from Los Alamos. China’s manifest destiny at hand.

In the near future, America and China go head-to-head in a battle of technological bluffs, setting in motion a chain of events that could lead to skyrocketing oil prices, the end of the dollar, the American way of life, and the republic itself. The only man who might have an answer in the midst of the international crisis is Patrick “Mac” McDaniels, a world-renowned physicist who wants nothing to do with the government. Has he been conducting revolutionary energy research in secret? And if so, will McDaniels be America’s salvation—or its ruin? 

My Thoughts:

This book is very different from anything that I typically read but that made it much more interesting and pushed me to really try to understand what was going on.  For sure it is filled with suspense and mystery, but probably the most interesting for me was to try to get my head around all of the crazy and bad handed business deals that go on in The Quaker State Affair.  Dan Romian did a great job of keeping me on my toes and always wondering what was going to happen next.   Every time I though that I had it figured out something else happened.  I am glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone and read this book it opened my eyes.  It was quick paced and really did not let me get to a place where I wanted to put it down.  The characters are dynamic and interesting which really helped the story move along.
