The Formula Author:Steve Shagan A bizarre murder and the discovery of a mysterious note involve seasoned investigator Barney Caine in a search for the elusive Genesis Formula for the synthetic fuel that kept Germany's war machine running during the Second World War.
I had never heard of Shagan and I found this book at a sale. It is everything a superthriller should be. You can judge a great book in my house by how many times the wife says "You need to turn that light off and get to sleep, you have to go to work in the morning." I'm now looking for the movie they made from this book, with George C Scott and Marlin Brando!!! Great!!
