Overview

When a mass murder shatters the calm of bucolic Westfield, New Jersey, veteran detective Joe Henderson is unprepared for the fallout when the shooter turns out to be a well-known local guy, a fellow soccer dad, and a friend. For Henderson, the nightmare is just beginning. He is about to be challenged by the preeminent biotech genius Dr. Mahli Lani and the Brooklyn Mafia family that has provided $500 million in the financing for a "miracle drug" that is marching America to the brink of nuclear war. Gene Killers shines a spotlight on FDA ineptitude and the drive of Wall Street for the perfect score. In a tale worthy of Michael Crichton and Raymond Chandler, author Lawrence Kaplan weaves an epic medical murder mystery based on scientific discoveries torn from today's headlines. Readers of Kaplan's earlier work, House of Ghosts, will recognize Detective Joe Henderson, the hard-drinking, chain smoking, politically incorrect heir to Phillip Marlowe and his sidekick the devious, Russian √©migr√© siren, Alenia Gilbert.

Meet the Author

Lawrence (Larry) Kaplan grew up in a middle-class section of Union, New Jersey. A child of the 1950s, he says that he "played punch ball in the street, didn't go to camp, and didn't talk back." It was a world where kids rode their bikes to get where they needed to go, mothers stayed home, and no one had two cars. "And most important," Larry notes, "people gave a damn about each other." His dad was a dental technician; this inspired Larry to go into dentistry. He's been in solo practice in Scotch Plains, New Jersey, since 1983.His passion for medicine animates every page of Gene Killers.
