Matt Richtel in his new book, “doomsday book coverThe Doomsday Equation” published by William Morrow introduces us to Jeremy Stillwater.

From the back cover: From the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist comes a pulse-pounding technological thriller—as ingenious as the works of Michael Crichton and as irresistible as a summer blockbuster—in which one man has three days to prevent the outbreak of World War III and the world’s annihilation

What if you knew the world was going to end?
What if no one believed you?

Jeremy Stillwater is a genius with computers but not so much with people. Maddeningly self-righteous, he’s alienated his girlfriend and infuriated his Silicon Valley financiers and the government agents who saw military promise in his innovation: a program that seemed to be able to predict war.

Even Jeremy has begun to doubt the algorithm’s capabilities. Then one day his computer has a message for him. War is coming. Three days and counting until massive nuclear conflict.

Is it real? A malicious joke? A bug?

Isolated yet relentless, Jeremy soon uncovers an ancient conspiracy of unspeakable danger. And it will take every bit of Jeremy’s stubborn ingenuity to survive another minute, let alone save the world.

Someone wants to destroy the world. There is only one man who knows about it, has only three days to stop it and, of course, no one believes him. This is science fiction that is rapidly becoming fact. This is technology gone wild and in use by evil people. This is a future that could potentially happen. This is an excellent story that will grab you and hold you as you race to the end. Get ready for a thriller that moves along at a brisk rate that has plenty of action, romance and loads of atmosphere.  “The Doomsday Equation” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Mr. Richtel has provided us with a very clever exciting book.
