I just finished reading “The Tesla Formula” and I must say…great book; kudos to author
Nicolas Kublicki. The book’s main character, Patrick Carlton, reminds me of the main
character in Clive Cussler’s books and I would say that Kublicki has definitely brought
action / adventure / intrigue / espionage novels to a whole new level.
Some of you may be familiar with the Serbian-American inventor Nikola Tesla who, for
starters, brought us alternating current (AC) which is used in everyday life around the
world. To put it succinctly, Tesla was a genius.
Tesla, the holder of 272 patents in 25 countries died quietly in a New York hotel room
sometime during the night of January 7, 1943. His nephew, Sava Kosanovic, found him
the following morning and also discovered that his uncle’s scientific papers had been
gone through and that a black folder labeled “Government” was missing. Kosanovic
immediately contacted the FBI who came and removed all of Tesla’s documents, papers
In 1943 our country was thoroughly embroiled in WWII and the FBI, seeking any kind of
edge possible, ordered Special Agent in Charge P.E. Foxworth to review thousands of
pages of Tesla’s papers. Amazingly enough Foxworth found something and it was such a
significant discovery that Foxworth would only reveal it in person to the nation’s
president: Franklin D. Roosevelt. However, FDR was in Casablanca meeting with
Churchill and Charles de Gaulle. That didn’t stop Foxworth though; he boarded a military
plane bound for Morocco but somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean the plane exploded and
the secret was lost forever. Or was it?
The book’s introduction is true; the story itself is fictional however, with events from this
day and age and with the author’s consistent use of real world facts and quotes “The
Tesla Formula” reads like a non-fiction book. And if you want to know how it ends I
suggest you get your own copy…
As for the writing… Kublicki does a phenomenal job. I daresay his words will hold
readers riveted and keep them sitting on the edge of their seats; an amazingly interesting
and realistic story without becoming over embellished. A solid five star read…
”Electrifying intrigue cannot begin to describe the international evil and treachery of Kublicki’s villainous cast of spies, murderers, crooked pols and depraved Saudi princes set upon destroying the free world’s energy system and economy. Only the secret of Tesla’s lost formula can save us. The theme is as up to date as tomorrow’s headlines. No author paints his characters with greater élan or more scholarly and loving authenticity.”
