Awesome Christian Thriller? Come Read about it!

Review done by Ellen

Book Title: Maximal Reserve
Author: Sam Batterman
Genre: Fiction, General
ISBN: 978-1-935265-52-8
Publisher: Deep River Books
Suggested Retail Price: $14.99

From the book:

What if oil isn't scarce? A secret that can change the balance of the world's power and finance in a moment is known by the most unlikely of people - and he's only been employed for a week.
Phillip Channing just graduated from college and wants to do something with his life rather than continue on with his education.  He goes for an interview with a very prestigious company and is flown via helicopter to learn something that will change his life.  He accepts the job and finds the biggest oil reserve in the entire world.  Unfortunately, he isn't the only person that's discovered this.  There are a host of criminals and power hungry politicians who have discovered the same secret that he has and they don't want him to tell. They'll stop at nothing to keep him quiet so that the balance of power in the Middle East doesn't change.

This is a really awesome Christian thriller. It will make you question everything you think you know about the origins of oil.  If you like conspiracy theories and secret government missions, you are going to really get into it.  While it contains a lot of technical jargon, it's written in a way that is very easy to understand even by someone who has no technical history at all.  I had no problem imagining that this exact same scenario could happen today in the real world.  This made the book even more fun to read.  Very easy to read and hard to put down.  Great book!
