Advance praise for Gene's Genes"A real page turner. Mystery intertwined with science. Ping and Gretch will win your heart."-Bob Goldberg, Professor of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, UCLA, Member US National Academy of Sciences"Murder, mystery, and medicine combine into a real thriller. But plenty of humor, much of it on the black side. I carried it around on my Palm Pilot just to get it read in between my busy medical rounds."-Mark van Wormer, MD, RVT, RDCS, ABAAMGene Anderson, a renowned geneticist, is hard on the trail of three possible Nobel Prize-winning genes that he believes will transform the world. But his pursuit is derailed when he is accused of committing a series of gruesome murders. Once jailed, there is little he can do to defend himself.When a loyal cadre of Anderson's former students later stumbles onto a secret and illegal insurance database, the mystery unravels. Genealogical sleuthing leads to an epiphany about the relationships between Anderson's supposed victims-revealing, as well, the true identity of the murderer.Ultimately, the students share their complicated logic with Anderson, now a shell of his former self after years of incarceration, and the information ignites a spark in his drugged and dormant creativity, allowing his genius to flare once again.
