But there are those who would do anything to stop him.
In today's world of hydrocarbon economy with giant corporations controlling everything from Wall Street to the price of fuel in our tanks and big government keeping secrets from the people it is supposed to serve, this book gives rise to a what-if scenario that is actually based more on facts than speculations. Is it true? Could it have happened? Were the inventors truly scientists who discovered a breakthrough or con-men trying to bilk the government out of millions? You be the judge in this seat –of -the –pants thriller. It all started from a myth in 1970. And it is still going today.
"He told me they had killed Michael Reinhardt. That was the first thing he said to me. In fact his exact words were "They murdered him." As a reporter I have a keen eye and a sharp nose for people and their character. I can tell a set-up when it is facing me – sometimes when it is a mile away. My job is to sift the few grains of truth out from the mounds of deceitful chaff as it is harvested for a story. So, I can say with great confidence, he didn't look like a con man or a nutcase. He was very self-effacing and very genuine. A thin wisp of a man who once stood erect and proud was now stooped and bent under the weight of cancer. His thinning hair swept back onto a head that seemed larger in proportion than it should have been for his diminutive size. At times he was soft-spoken to the point that I often had to ask him to repeat himself for fear I was missing something important. At other times he could be most forceful, even bombastic and crude, to get his idea across, emphasizing each point with a skinny finger pointing right at me (he would have poked me in the chest with it had he been able to reach me), but always with empathy for his listener. On still other occasions, his anger would boil over and he would get frustrated and show the dramatic signs of an old and forgotten man that the world was letting pass away with little or no fanfare."
Crawley delivers an alarming story at many levels in The Myth Makers. Who is coning whom? Who is out for truth and who is out to bury the story? Conspiracy, betrayal, and good old fashion luck all come crashing head-first into this thriller. But remember, it is only a myth – or is it?
