Julia Darcy who recently left a position in a large legal firm to start her own company is tapped by Michael Antonelli an after market auto entrepreneur to write up an iron clad copy write patent for an invention that will blow the oil companies out of the water and make environmentalists world wide ecstatic. It was actually his friend who figured out how to make it (while on a trip to Belize) and Michael who could take that product and refine it into auto fuel.
Things get really crazy and very dangerous but by now Julia is not going to quit this case--no matter what Michael says!! This is non stop action and a book you don't want to miss for various reasons! By the way, I agree with the reviewer below-this would make a great movie!!
About the Book: (from Amazon)
Aftermarket auto entrepreneur Michael Antonelli has a groundbreaking scheme in need of a patent lawyer. Who better than Julia Darcy, the brainy young woman who cost him a bundle in an unrelated lawsuit? She's left a top-notch firm to start her own practice, but when he approaches she isn't interested. At least not until he reveals he and his scientist partner have come up with the Holy Grail of energy, green gas that burns clean with almost no impact on the environment. She swallows her skepticism for the patent opportunity of a lifetime . . . if it's real.
When she's tossed down an office stairwell Antonelli suspects this is the opening gambit in a high stakes ploy to steal his process. He no longer wants her involved but Julia insists, even though her jaws are wired shut from the accident. A lawyer who can't talk? He'd be nuts to agree. Still, her fire in the belly convinces him she'll work her butt off to patent his biofuel. Unless it's his attraction to Julia's guts and crooked smile? He enlists his mafia uncle to keep an eye on her. Big mistake when his estranged teenaged daughter is kidnapped. It takes the mafia, CIA, and Julia's bravery to come up with a strategy. But what does it mean for Michael, Julia, the biofuel, and their escalating passion? Read Zero Emissions to find out!

Dorian Paul is Dorrie Parini and Paul LaFerriere, writing partners and spouses. We met at a small consulting company prior to starting our own science writing company, and before taking the plunge into wedded bliss. Talk about entrepreneurial risk! We worked together, mostly on the same page, providing Fortune 100 pharmaceutical and biotech companies with accurate and cutting-edge science information for their markets. Along the way our little endeavor collected over 100 writers, artists, designers and computer specialists. We sold it, but couldn't stop writing together so we turned to fiction with a science twist. Risking the World, our first biotech thriller, was an Amazon Bestseller in suspense, and Zero Emissions is our latest entry. We write books that combine the adventure of a man and woman working side-by-side in a start-up enterprise, the joys and trials of mixing work and love, and stories of how science impacts the lives of ordinary people in unexpected ways.
