In the 1970's, when energy was cheap and gas lines years in the future, three engineers in the New Mexico desert discover a secret hiding in the molecules of oxygen and hydrogen compounds. As they work to decode this secret, they find that the laws of physics prohibiting a perpetual motion device may not be carved in stone. The results cost one engineer his life, sentence another to a lifetime in hiding, and condemn the third to play dumb for the last thirty years of his life.
The Myth Makers asks the questions: Had these engineers built the ultimate free energy machine? Or was theirs just another hoax perpetrated by brilliant con men? Reporter, Jack Lawrence, the novel's protagonist, must answer these questions to get his article into print. Also facing him, the impending demise of his own publication. Is this story big enough to save the newspaper? Or are these secrets too dangerous to reveal?
