Overview

Doctor Mosquito: A Novel by Richard C Dellinger

Richard C Dellinger’s debut novel gives us a terrifying glimpse into the near future. An intense, pulse-pounding ride that will dig its genetically modified claws into you and won’t let go. A book for the fans of Michael Crichton’s clever techno-thrillers (Jurassic Park) and Stephen King’s nerve-shredding horror novels (Cujo).

World-renowned geneticist Dr. Peter Birch is barely hanging on. When his wife dies of Huntington's disease, his whole world crumbles. He loses his love, his career, his home… and his will to live. His teenage daughter is the only glimmer of joy in a bleak existence.

Then a mysterious package arrives. Inside, a white mouse — genetically modified with miraculous abilities. When Pete’s daughter shows signs of the same genetic disease that killed his wife, he realizes that this mouse could be the key to saving her life. But who sent it, and why?

As he races to find a cure he is recruited by a secretive company called Plinian Labs owned by an intensely private billionaire and philanthropist. Wielding a powerful new tool called CRISPR, the company is on the cutting edge of genetic engineering. But the more Pete learns about the company, the more desperate he becomes to escape. As the clock runs out, he must choose between saving his daughter… or saving the world.

Just finished reading Doctor Mosquito !! Great first novel, the plot feels very possible and scary! Mr. Dellinger has an easy writing style and makes the science involved easy to understand. His plot lines kind of remind me of Dean Koontz and I mean that to be a complement because I love Dean Kootz.. Can't wait for the next book, I read the tease on his website and it sounds very promising.. Thanks for a great read and a new favorite author !!

I loved this debut novel; it's a definite page turner with a dark insight into what's possible with genetic technology we have today. The author does a fantastic job of walking a novice (me) through complex scientific topics to help advance the story in a meaningful way, and the constant plot twists with engaging characters made it difficult to put down the book.
