Our dependency on foreign oil is no longer acceptable. David Spicer has written a novel that addresses this issue as well as a solution to the albatross around our necks. Deadly Freedom is the most relevant and timely novel to be written in the first decade of the 21st century. For an enlightening and engaging page-turner novel, read Deadly Freedom. You won't be disappointed in the meld of fact and fiction that David has so cleverly entwined. Jason "Doc" Davidson will take you through a myriad of sources that are trying to prevent an Electric Economy; among them are the government, oil companies, and foreign governments. Doc presents a convincing argument that the Electric Economy can be a reality within the next decade. After reading Deadly Freedom, you can decide for yourself.

Ok. I expected this to be more academic than thriller and I was right. But it was still a very thought provoking book. Maybe a little too cerebral in spots and I thought that some sections of character development dragged a bit. But that was not why I only gave 4 stars. The ending was not the action packed conclusion that I expected. I was also hoping to find out more about THE CLUB. Maybe Spicer is planning a sequel where revenge comes into play. If he does then I would buy it.

A riveting novel that could well be ripped from the headlines of tomorrow's major newspapers, "Deadly Freedom" is a story of intrigue and assassination, conspiracy and collusion, OPEC, Big Oil, and the automotive industries as they seek to secure their lucrative controls on the world's petroleum-based economies against renewable energy and its proponents here at home and abroad. Then there is 'The Club', a covert hit squad of rogue CIA double agents who mean to take out Professor Jason Davidson and his team of researchers who have discovered a workable alternative to the world's energy needs that if brought to bear would mean an end to the annual one-and-a-half trillion dollar revenue of the major oil companies. "Deadly Freedom" is a riveting read from first page to last, the kind of action/adventure/suspense novel of which block-buster movies are made and a highly recommended addition to personal reading lists and community library collections.

In his new book Deadly Freedom, David Spicer makes a compelling case for the U.S. to become an electric economy. With the use of already existing technology, electricity generated through solar energy would heat our homes and fuel our cars. Fossil fuels would be replaced with low cost, environmentally clean renewable energy and we would no longer be at the mercy of OPEC or need a military presence in the Middle East.
Of course making the electric economy a reality will require overcoming very powerful special interests including big oil, politicians and foreign governments. Deadly Freedom is a very enjoyable read as it weaves its' way through a myriad of highly motivated opposing forces to offer a very plausible solution to the major issue of our times. Don't miss reading this book !!!

Had this been a scientific paper, and parts of it I'm sure were, I never would have read it. Wrapping it in a thrilling murder/conspiracy was as brilliant as it was entertaining.
Mr. Spicer presents a clear, logical plan that will lead us to energy independence. A plan that excited me as much as the characters in the book. And the villains were just as plausible as the heroes! Now ever time I read an article on a different energy independence plan, I wonder about ulterior motives!
Very entertaining with a crucial message. I hope every politician and citizen will read this book...
