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.

Richards can do better

Not as good as other books by Richards. I dislike the unconvincing arguments regarding God theory, and the plot twist is totally predictable and kind of anticlimactic. The story and characters are true to the style of the author, and that I like.

Too much fictional waffle

I found that this story didn't go anywhere fast. The author spent an incredible amount of time building fictional theories and explaining them in excruciating detail. He also found it necessary to use foul language on a number of occasions. I personally hate this descent into very base behaviour and it leaves me with a dim view of the authors morals. It would seem that media of all sorts are competing to become the rudest, foul mouthed orators out of their peers. When you see three and four year olds using this language you know it has gone too far. To the author.... Please edit this bad language out of your books. Don't continue to add to the moral decline.
