9780988655607: Q-23: A Novel of Espionage and Racqueteering

Q-23 is a revolutionary new chemical formula, but research chemist Roger Pate, its discoverer, hardly expects to be murdered because of it. His friend, private investigator Kurt Strong, isn’t as naïve as Roger about those who prefer crushing innovation that threatens the status quo. Both men soon find themselves, however, attempting to outwit a powerful enemy in an escalating and violent situation. The normally benign world of research and development takes on a sinister cast in this entertaining and pulse-pounding novel in which ordinary men must do extraordinary things to survive. Paul R. Theroux was educated as a chemical engineer, and following service in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II, pursued a career as an insurance industry executive. He currently lives in Florida and has been an avid world traveler and tennis player. Cousin of authors Paul, Alexander, and Peter Theroux, this is his first novel.

About the Author:

Paul R. Theroux was an industry insurance executive. This is his first novel. He lives in Orlando, Florida.

Review:

“I have just read Q-23 with pleasure. It is ingenious, well-observed, and specific."  —Paul E. Theroux, author, The Great Railway Bazaar, The Last Train to Zona Verde, and The Lower River

"The title of Paul Theroux’s new novel is a very clever play on words. But unlike many books adorned with clever titles, the story embedded in Q-23: A Novel of Espionage and Racqueteering is as clever as the title. I was hooked from the get-go."  —Kenneth G. Elzinga, coauthor, A Deadly Indifference, The Fatal Equilibrium, and Murder at the Margin

"I have found Q-23 fascinating. I could not put it down and I have taken it everywhere. Paul Theroux has one vivid imagination and yet everything is so plausible. I have really enjoyed the story, especially having been myself in healthcare both in business and government. . . . Highly recommended!"  —Don M. Newman, former undersecretary, United States Department of Health and Human Services; author, Newman’s Musings: Reflections of a Life
