Here are some initial reviews:
My daughter and I are avid Kindle readers. We share discovery of new writers when either of us by chance come across a really superior page-turner, "who dunit" detective story. I just finished D.N.A., by Jack and Sue Drafahl. It kep me glued to my reading chair by the fire past midnight many nights.
D.N.A. has all the varied elements that make a mystery novel compluslive reading. The authors' knowledge of police procedure, forensic technology and crimial law bears total credibiliity and never becomes tedious. Corruption, with billions of dollars at stake, at the level of the U.S. Senate and Military, touches depressingly on today's daily news. The murders - and there are many - follow a logical pattern and are artfully introduced without pathological, gory details that make the reader's stomach turn.
The subplot, a warm and poignant love affair and warm family loyalty, provides relief from the malignant forces at work and is never tedious or graphically prurient. The daily advance in computer technology make the complex plot for the story excitingly believable.
I found D.N.A. a fine read, wonderfully entertaining and a new star in the art of writing mystery novels. Let's have more, Jack and Sue Drafahl. - Stan Waterman
