"The Gene Police by Elliott Light is an original and simply riveting mystery novel by a master of the genre--one that is especially recommended for community library Mystery/Suspense collections."
--Midwest Book Review
"A strong mystery supported by its powerful treatment of racial injustice."
"Light's thought-provoking third mystery features attorney Shep Harrington . . . who learns that Sweetwater Hospital was run at the time by a prominent eugenicist, who shared Nazi beliefs about race. Light's timely look at an almost forgotten dark chapter of recent American history, when doctors experimented on those considered racially inferior, more than compensates for the routine mystery."
"The Gene Police is the third novel in the Shep Harrington SmallTown mystery series and my introduction to both Shep and Elliott Light. Being shrouded in mystery meant that I wanted to continuously read (well intothe night too.) Shep is an interesting character and brilliantly complicated.The book contains intense plot elements; some are really quite harrowing. Iwasn't crying, there was something in my eye.The twists and turns of the plot had me guessing up to the last page andI found the writing style easy to like. If you love mystery, then really do give this book series a go."
