Quantum Lens

Quantum Lens

A mind-blowing new thriller from the NY Times bestselling author of WIRED

“Richards is a worthy successor to Michael Crichton.” —SF Book.com

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 readers will be contemplating long after they've read the last page.

“Richards is a tremendous new talent” (Stephen Coonts) who can “keep you turning the pages all night long” (Douglas Preston)

    You must read this book or it won't exist! Now I could be wrong about that but if I learned anything from this book, it's that quantum physics is something I know very little about. This book is a rea...

    While the underlying story is compelling, Richards frequently interrupts the plot for long periods of dialog exploring topics of science, religion, philosophy, and politics. This wouldn't be a problem...

    This story is definitely different. Two "god-wannabe's" who are able to fly around at 500 mph without an airplane, destroy people and structures with a single nod, and generally be a threat to mankind...

    Characters are one-dimensional. Some of the ideas are interesting, more on that below. The "twist" ending was broadcast in neon lights well before it was a surprise so reading the last few chapters wa...

    - Poor pacing. Small bits of action mixed with lots of repetitive and tiresome exposition.- The science is sophomoric. The author resorts to analogies to popular movies ("What if we really are in the ...
