    One thought on “Fracture Gradient”

    1. Greed drove everybody and everything in this novel. Three oil industry employees discover an alternative to fossil fuels and want to get really rich from it. Unfortunately, they don't approach it well, leaking information at the wrong time to the wrong people, and not securing their discovery with a patent before trying to get massive amounts of money from their employer, the American government, and the Saudis. Needless to say, if the product came to market, it would disrupt the world order and [...]

    2. This novel incorporates all the elements of a classic thriller. It has national and international intrigue, mystery and murder. The author has tapped into his own experiences of the military, Texas oil fields and communication. He has used factual events from the 80's and intertwined them with his fictional tale, but leaves you with the questions of is it fiction, or not? The story is told in the genre of Tom Clancy with all of the twists and turns that makes the reader unwilling to put it down. [...]

    3. This novel's plot encompasses both national and international intrigue as to the world's energy needs. The story line is most fascinating and makes the reader wonder if this has actually already happened in our search for an inexpensive substitute for energy independence from other countries.The conspiracy and characters are very well defined and captures the time frame so accurately. It weaves actual well known people and occurrences seamlessly with the author's fictional characters.This is a w [...]

    4. This was an excellent effort by a first-time author. The book was very well written, and it just pulls you through the pages; difficult to put it down for any length of time. The bursts of intense action, followed by narrative that brought one up to date on the characters and the story, so that no character or the story line ever got lost. This style engages the reader, as well as keeping the reader focused. Hopefully, this is not the last we will hear from this author.

    5. Jim McCulloch's first novel is an impressive thriller with plenty of relevant detail about the time, the setting and the industry it exposes. It's a page turner as we follow Fletcher Boyd, Hollis Cade and Steve Addison on a dangerous flight from the bad guys who aren't prepared for what they find. Constructed with military precision, this book leads you to a believable conclusion once you understand the international implications of the men's discovery.

    6. What an excellent read. You will get to know the characters intimately and when you do, hold on! The author will take you for one of the most exciting rides you have ever been on. I hated for the book to end knowing I wouldn't see the characters again, but then again, I couldn't wait to see how it ended.
