Overview

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.

    Great Read!

    Dan's War is an amazing book filled with suspense and high stakes. This isn't a book for the faint at heart. It's non-stop and fast paced with enough heart to warm even the most jaded of thriller reader. You cannot help but feel a connection to the main character, Dan, as he tries to stop the destruction of our world. Yet, you also feel a deep empathy for the villain too. This is a must read!

    Oil Alert

    The plot and the characters of Dan's War demanded my full attention. I read it non-stop. Much of the setting is in Cajun country, so well portrayed that you can smell the boudin and cigales bubbling in the pot. The time is the near future. The story's premise is that all the world's oil disappears within in a few days. The scientific theory for this is defensible. Along with the petroleum, the thin veneer of culture and civilization also drains away. Dan isn't a super-hero, but he's mightily engaging. Thrillers can end tidily, but this one doesn't. It makes you supply your own preferred ending while waiting anxiously for what really happens next to Dan. Milt Mays' fine writing spins a haunting tale.
