THE GOD PARTICLE CONSPIRACY: Two of the world's most powerful, corrupt politicians hatch a scheme to hold the world's fossil-fuel economy hostage and send the global economy and civilization into chaos. Princeton Professor John Logan stumbles onto their plot and is about to blow the whistle when tragedy strikes. He runs for his life and hides in a dank New Orleans church abandoned since Katrina, numbing his pain with cheap Bourbon. His protégé, Sarah Carmichael, is left to finish the puzzle, find the professor, and stop the madmen before it's too late. That is, if the people who want them dead don't find them first. An abridged review follows:

"The God Particle: Conspiracy is a novel that is going to change the thriller/action and
adventure genre forever. Never before have I read such an in-depth, intriguing, thrilling
story that had a genuine ability to captivate me within the first few pages. Don Phelan is the
author of the magnificent The God Particle: Conspiracy and he wonderfully earns the title of
'literary genius' thanks to this latest work of his; Phelan has managed to weave themes
which technically should not work well together however he does just that flawlessly. Phelan
weaves them together to contribute to a fantastic and unforgettable story that will have
readers thinking about its plot and its ending for weeks afterward."

In 2016, Phelan first fictional novel, The Beech Tree, earned a 4.3 stars out of a possible 5 on Amazon, was voted Number 1 on Goodreads' '2016's Best Summer Reads.'

The Beech Tree is the story of colorful characters who meet and share their lives, their loves, their hopes, heartaches and dreams beneath the tree's leafy, green canopy.

"Absolutely Fantastic Definitely five stars. I'd give ten if that were an option. The characters
were so real, I could see myself in each of them. The trains, the places, the philosophy,
and the tree, were so poignant. I cried, laughed, and cried again. A truly excellent book.
This is the kind of book that makes you better for having read it." ~Rebecca Askew

My daughters' grandfathers were both once robust, vital men who served our nation in war and eventually succumbed to the ravages of aging. This piece is dedicated to all men who have traveled the same path. May our children always remember their sacrifice. May my daughters always be grateful for the freedom their grandfathers ensured.
