The Patent by Max Garwood & Joseph Grisham

Shanghai, China: Inventor and patent attorney Marc Wayne is held captive until he produces a functioning model of his Meissner Field Generator. At stake, his ransomed sister's life. At the request of the FBI, Marc submits a patent application based on a theoretical, but seemingly bogus device that has tantalizing military applications to lure the technology thieves. The bait worked all too well, attracting the illegal patent hackers within the hostile foreign government. Now sequestered in an undisclosed laboratory far from his small Midwest town, Marc struggles to convert an unproven idea into a weapon of global superiority. He suspects that he will be killed if he succeeds... USPTO: Alexandria, Virginia: Muslim Hatim Saad is in the grips of a sadistic international spy, blackmailed to leak vital inventions from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Motivated by a longing to repair relations with his estranged Jewish son, in a moment of passion, he tricks his blackmailer... Washington D.C.: A team of FBI agents, led by young Mallory Wayne, strive to trace the stolen patent only to find its author - her brother - has disappeared. Unaware that Marc believes she is being held hostage, first-time project leader Mallory is cognizant of the danger to her brother's life and struggles with doubts of her own abilities. So far, the kidnappers have remained one step ahead... In this breakout novel by Max Garwood and Joseph Grisham, the co-authors combine scientific and engineering skills with fast-paced writing to create a page-turning suspense. When the world teeters on the verge of World War III, the nation that develops a patent attorney's invention will be invincible in the race for global dominance.
