Robert Troy at New Dominion April 22

Coming to New Dominion Bookshop:

Robert Troy will present selections from his novel of international intrigue

Denial of Sunlight

Thursday, April 22 at 5:30 PM

Robert Troy shows the frighteningly real possibilities for deception and dominance by world powers seeking control over an innovative alternative energy source. In this suspenseful tale of international intrigue, deceitful governments, and subtle romance, Troy’s heroine finds herself trying to preserve a world-saving technology and her own integrity.

Drawing from his background as a PhD in Physics as well as from international events of 2007-2008, author Robert Troy tells the tale of a dangerous international whirlwind surrounding a solar-electric cell technology that could help the world escape fossil-fuel dependence. Developed by a small, eccentric electronics firm, this technology suddenly becomes the focal point for attempts by China and America to control the world’s energy.

“Chinese earthquakes, Special Forces’ ops, big league physics, skullduggery in the halls of power – here’s one powerhouse debut. Troy writes stealth fiction, smart, swift and subversive. Start it at nighttime? You’ll be up until dawn.” Paul Evans, co-author of The Rolling Stone Album Guide, in praise of Denial of Sunlight.

Denial of Sunlight is Troy’s first novel, to be followed by the second segment of the tale, Emergence.

A native of Scranton, Pennsylvania, Robert Troy holds a B.S. from the University of Scranton and a PhD. from the University of Virginia. He lives in Charlottesville, Virginia with his high school sweetheart and wife, Laura, where they raised their son Andrew. Robert teaches physics at St. Anne’s-Belfield School and in the Summer Session at the University of Virginia.
