  Now available in paperback from Ivy Books, LETHAL GENES by Linda
Grant,  a mystery novel set in a plant genetics laboratory at the
University
of  California.

   * At last, the perfect book for your parents who love you dearly but
     haven't a clue what you do,

OR

   * Your snarky cousin who's convinced that science is boring.

AND

   * Most of all for you. Because murder in a maize lab is fun--as long
as it's fictional.

Virginia Walbot of  Stanford says of LETHAL GENES:

"Finally, my friends and relatives can experience life in a plant
molecular genetics laboratory! The emotional and intellectual highs and
lows of a modern research laboratory as well as the fun of field work
are presented within an engaging mystery story that explores the dark
side of the race for new knowledge and the fame and fortune which accrue

to the "winners" in biotechnology."
