Stunning New Novel Explores What Would Happen if Every Nuclear Power Plant in the U. S. was Shut Down

A zealot creates an energy crisis that puts the country in turmoil in Peter A. Thonet's timely thriller, Magnum Opus.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 3, 2007

Magnum Opus, Peter A. Thonet's thrilling new novel, tackles a terrifying scenario: all nuclear power plants in the America have stopped working, the military is at a loss to help, and even the president must yield to a new kind of unimaginable terror.

Magnum Opus, a provocative and relevant novel by Peter A. Thonet, imagines the next terrifying step in the energy crisis currently plaguing the United States. Disgusted with the ease in which politicians ignore the future of energy, Thonet's protagonist is determined to set things right. But he doesn't expect a formidable new adversary: a young San Franciscan sugar cane heir, who fights him at every turn.

Written with probing intelligence in clear, lucid prose, Magnum Opus is a fictional story grounded in truth. Thrillingly told, the book offers not just a terrific page-turning read, but a warning: unless the energy question is addressed, and soon, the United States will walk headfirst into unavoidable disaster.
