       Additional Information  
      A fast-paced action-mystery that explains how genetic engineering impacts our lives. Like Crighton and Cook, Putney weaves medical science and technology with first-rate fiction.
    The Red Crab Conspiracy, a fast paced action-mystery, explains how our society has been shaped by the scientific and technological advances of the pivotal two decades at the end of the 20th century. Set on John Boxford's 400-acre aquatic farm on Boston's North Shore, his son Roger and his Japanese fiancée Atoki are critically injured by the Celline brothers. After Atoki dies, Roger, his cousin Kurt--a Harvard biology professor, Atoki's father--an international technology broker, and John's boyhood friend Dante Ferrante--a wealthy entrepreneur, plot a high tech revenge based on cutting-edge biotechnology. The Red Crab Conspiracy explores the scientific and technological origins of genetic engineering and cloning, and shows how modern genetics is having an overwhelming impact on international business, medicine, religion, psychology and psychiatry. This novel was written in the early 1980s but not published until nearly twenty years later; amazingly, all of the predictions that were made then have come to pass including the cause of AIDS, its treatment, and the genetic basis of human behavior. Like Michael Crighton, Robin Cook, and Aldous Huxley before them, George Putney is a unique visionary able to expertly weave science, medicine, and technology with first-rate fiction. The Red Crab Conspiracy is a must-read for anyone who strives to understand the forces that have created our modern world.
