The Quaker State Affair by Dan Romain

What happens when "someday" finally arrives?

Book Summary: 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 review:  The Quaker State Affair is an excellent book! The story is believable, and relatable to the economics and the oil industry in the world today.  Newsworthy events we read about and sometimes worry about as well.

Not only is China attempting to pull off world economic chaos and domination, it is during the American Presidential election. The current President has enough on his plate, then this mysterious explosion happens, and China is prepared to take over as world economic leader.  Will China pull it off?  Can Mac, the physicist genius, come up with an energy solution in time?  If so, is he willing to work with the government?

The story is fast paced, action packed and keeps the reader engaged and wanting more.  The characters and dialog are entertaining and compelling. If you like political thrillers/mysteries, then you will love this book! 
It was so good, I feel like a movie is going to be coming next!    5 stars

I was given an ARC of this book from Tribute Books for an honest review.

  1. MaryAnn, it's always good to hear when a reader would love to see a movie version of a book. I'm glad you thoroughly enjoyed Dan's political thriller :)

  2. There are so many books out there where I wish they would have made a movie to it. I agree with your post :-)
