Read full description of the books:
"My first reaction to Jim McCulloch's debut novel was, "When's the movie coming out?" McCulloch concocts a thriller with just the right ingredients to satisfy modern moviegoers, all without relying on zombies or vampires. Set during the Reagan Era, Fracture Gradient plausibly blends international intrigue, deception, governmental cluelessness and denial. ... If this story ever makes it to the silver screen, I'll be interested to see who plays Ronald Reagan - and if there's a role for Arnold Schwarzenegger."
Rating 5 Star in April 2013 QST magazine from the ARRL, The National Association for Amateur Radio.
It’s the 1980’s, Ronald Reagan is President, and America has recovered from the crippling energy shortages of the 1970’s when OPEC nearly squeezed oil-dependent economies to death. But now the U.S. energy industry is faltering as OPEC again manipulates the international oil markets to wrestle back dominance and force America to her knees one more time.
Out of nowhere, rumors of an astonishing alternative energy discovery suddenly emerge and threaten to reshuffle the international balance of power, destroy OPEC, and make the world energy self-sufficient. Fletcher Boyd and Hollis Cade own it . . . for what it’s worth and at least for now. Information insidiously leaks and all hell breaks loose as Big Oil, OPEC, and governments explode into action. Who can be trusted? Can a handful of ruggedly individualistic underdogs withstand the massive assault from highly-trained government operatives and corporate security forces?
What seems simple is not. What seems logical is not. Energy is power and power means everything to those who wield it. But Fletcher and Hollis don’t bend or bow; they’re hard men who think for themselves and are willing to fight for principle and what’s theirs.
Deadly intrigue, numbing twists, and exhilarating action will rivet you to your chair as a question chafes somewhere in the dark recesses of your psyche . . . an itch that can’t be scratched. Has this happened?
What else will you find in Fracture Gradient? You will find breathtaking action and adventure in the international oil and gas industry, Texas, Saudi Arabia, OPEC and Saudi Aramco, ham radio, private jets, F-4 Phantoms fighting an F-14 Tomcat over northern Minnesota, general aviation carnage, and a fascinating peek into the concept of hydrogen power derived from a very common substance! Not enough? Well, then there are the US military veterans fighting for their lives, plenty of gunplay, a damaged marriage, and astounding wealth up for grabs! How’s that?

Read information about the author
Welcome to my GOODREADS author page. Thank you for stopping by.
Goodreads suggests authors use this space to tell readers a little about themselves. It sounds easy but is awkward to do without making it sound like a resume or bragging. Or perhaps it’s difficult to believe anyone really wants to know about an author with only one book on the market.
Here is my background in a nutshell: Six-industry (including oil & gas) business guy; former US Army officer (mustang); amateur radio operator (ham); firearms aficionado; wet shaving fan. Most important is the fact that I have been a voracious reader since childhood. I suspect most of you share that attribute or you wouldn’t be part of Goodreads.
My wife, Dede, and I currently live in the rural Coast Range foothills of northwest Oregon.
Roll it all together and you have the underpinnings of Fracture Gradient. You can depend on a period-accurate backdrop, firearm action that makes sense, radio communications that don’t defy physics or logic, and regular people doing highly irregular things! No ninjas, super-hero’s, or special forces operators. The quickest link to Fracture Gradient is via Amazon at bookShow.me/0985774509 which will open to your local Amazon page anywhere in the world.
