Dan's War is about the end of world oil ... in two weeks. Abdullah El-Hamain, a high-roller OPEC member, hates Big Oil for polluting earth and killing his wife. His solution: sink or swim-end global warming by destroying the entire world's oil supply in two weeks, using spiders and nanobacteria. Drawn into his apocalyptic scheme is Dan Trotter, a CIA computer savant without equal, but with Asperger's-like syndrome that makes him a social goof. If Dan can only become a field agent in a real war he will become a hero like his father, breaking out of his geek job, and gain the respect from his wayward son, and roaming wife. Dan soon finds himself in the middle of an oil war, a war that his own computer program helped start. He strives to save our world, fighting inner demons, family problems, and reeling from an affair with a hot Marine. In the cataclysmic ending, Dan's priorities are totally rearranged. From Vienna to Indonesia, Dubai to the bayou country of Louisiana, this techno-thriller is as international as it is current. Dan's War was a finalist at the Pikes Peak Writers Contest in 2009. Milt Mays is a graduate of The Naval Academy, a retired U.S. Navy Captain, and a Cheyenne Veterans hospital physician, having learned the value and seen the results of war.
