Publisher's Summary

A mind-blowing new thriller from the NY Times best-selling author of Wired.
Omar Haddad is a brutal jihadist in Syria who appears to be invulnerable and capable of supernatural feats. But is Haddad divine, as he claims? Is he a gifted magician? Or is he making use of a stunning scientific breakthrough? And what, exactly, is keeping him from unleashing the global apocalypse he’s so eager to bring about? Brennan Craft, a quirky quantum physics genius, has the answers, and the US military is desperate to capture him. But when Craft risks everything to recruit a Black Ops researcher named Alyssa Aronson, it becomes clear he's playing a treacherous game of his own.
Hunted by both the military and Haddad, Craft and Alyssa race to find a way to keep the unstoppable jihadist in check. But there may not be any way. And Alyssa soon fears that Craft is becoming an even bigger threat to the world than Omar Haddad... Quantum Lens is a smart, roller-coaster-ride of a thriller, packed with intriguing ideas that listeners will be contemplating long after they've heard the last minute.

A maniacal villain is planning to cleanse the world of everyone he dislikes, which is almost all of us. The book’s hero would like to stop him. Expect action, tense moments and difficulty turning the story off when it’s time for work or bed.

The author reminds me of Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park, The Lost World, etc.). The book is packed with interesting science facts and the author’s views on religion, government, taxes, torture and comic book heroes.

Interesting premise

Not thrilled with the writing style. The narrator intruded into the story, too much "off camera summary'" but otherwise fun and thought provoking.
