Cold Fusion is a timely thriller about a breakthrough in energy research by a Georgia Tech physics professor which promises to completely alter the world's power structure. By providing a cheap and abundant source of decentralized power generation, the new technology could free the world from its dependence on oil. Then, on the very eve of unveiling his discoveries at the annual meeting of the American Physics Society, Professor Ware disappears along with his research. Rome Hacker, a cynical and jaded CIA agent whose primary goal involves a quiet retirement, is coerced into taking the case. Rome travels from Atlanta to New York and throughout the Middle East on a worldwide quest to locate the professor and save his research from falling into the hands of corrupt Wall Street speculators and international terrorists. Along the way, Rome reconnects with his former lover, the beautiful and dangerous Cartara Omora, a woman whose secrets have the power to change his life forever.
The book provides a tiny mystery on page 262. Davis writes that Ware describes heavy water to Hacker as having three hydrogen atoms. Perhaps Ware doesn't know better (not believable; Ware's a physics professor), or perhaps Ware thinks he'll confuse Hacker (not necessary; Hacker's good at his job, but isn't good at Ware's). Davis doesn't clear up the mystery, so it remains. David Carlyle, "Another Land."
