They know who you are. Let me help you. When Chicago advertising executive Michael Janaseck reads the unsettling email on his computer, and learns of the menacing visitor to his office, he is disturbed, mystified and angered by the assault on his privacy. Days later, a stranger is murdered before his eyes in his own back yard, and Michael's anger turns to panic as his safe and sane suburban life spirals out of control. Hunted because of "who he is' by relentless pursuers that kill everyone trying to protect him, searching for a mother he never knew existed, wanted by the police, Michael finds himself adapting to a world of violence and terror at a pace he never imagined possible. DNA is the story of an average man coping with unaccustomed violence and danger. It is also the tale of a search for hidden ancestry. In the end, genetic imprinting reveals how each of us may be nothing like who we think we are.

Nov 12, 2012The world lives by definitions, and each of us has his or her own for whatever is being described. Sprawling arguments have raged historically about the definitions of popular fiction and literary fiction, suggesting that never the twain could meet. Meet they do in Gary Brahl's new novel, DNA. Subtle and savvy dips into genealogical traits mixed with smash-mouth, well-targeted characterizations gives the reader a wonderfully hybrid lit/pop piece of fiction. Gary knows what he's doing, and he delightfully forces the reader to wonder about the biological gifts or curses he or she has received from the past. A good read, however you define it. Gary D.Swaim, Ph.D. (professor and writer)
Nov 8, 2012Tired of living in the boring old 21st century? Gary Brahl's DNA is a wild ride back through time. Mysterious genes, deadly gangsters and snappy dialogue keep the pages turning. DNA is a thrilling good time. - Larry Herold, playwright, author of The Sports Page
Nov 6, 2012Imagine on your own genome a pattern to the amino acids that would cause you to be marked to the lineage of great kings and glorious queens. Perhaps a lineage back to say, Cleopatra. Or more recently, Napoleon. There would be much pride and celebration I suppose. What if you were linked to McCartney or Lennon? Now suppose that same genome led you back to nefarious times; back to dark and sinister criminals – back to gangsters and swindlers and worse – murderers in the time of prohibition on the streets of Chicago. That DNA would be most dangerous. And just suppose you didn’t even know you had it in you. You were not aware of why “they” were after you and your loved ones. So goes DNA, the wonderfully written novel by Gary Brahl. The tale of a crime committed in the present and solved with knowledge from the past. Brahl’s first novel not only satisfies the thriller audience, it transcends the genre. If it is in your DNA, “they” are going to hunt you down, because of “who you are.” But... More > who are “they” and why do “they” want you dead? If it is in your DNA to solve this riddle, then DNA is truly the book, and Brahl the writer for you. – John Crawley, novelist & author of 11 books including soon to be released ‘The Myth Makers’.< Less
