Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant is the third in a series of near-future sci-fi thrillers whose young heroine, Ell Donsaii, we learned in Quicker has a nerve mutation that makes her an athletic phenomenon, so fast that no one can keep up with her. In Smarter, we learned how these fast nerve processes have made her a genius. She's both shy and concerned about her social skills, yet loved by those around her.

Like Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), while trying to drift off to sleep, instead of counting sheep, Ell does mathematics. Doing this, she develops a new theory of quantum mechanics. She has now dropped out of grad school after using her quantum theories to invent a means for enormously improving communications using entangled molecules. 

Back in the military to complete her commitment, she continues her physics research in her spare time. She also has to fend off more attempts to kidnap her by groups wanting access to her skills. As in the past, those who attack her don't consider that the very skills they envy and desire make her hard to subdue.

Then the People's Republic of China shoots down the US satellites over Asia in preparation for an invasion of Taiwan. Ell's quantum entangled communication chips can substitute for lost satellite communications and observation. Can she convince the brass to use them?

I would give it zero stars if I could.

Like fairy tales? I don't. The heroine is the finest mind since Einstein, an Olympic medalist, a stunning beauty and receives over 2 billion dollars a year in royalties for an invention. Oh, and she's 18 years old. Of course, she single handedly averts war with China. I wanted to puke.
