Praise for The Xeno Solution

The Xeno Solution is a fascinating, non-stop read, imaginative and terrifying. This thriller has greyhound pacing and one surprise after another. Few writers blend science and suspense like Nelson Erlick—he knows his medicine and knows how to write with unremitting tension. The Xeno Solution is taut, superbly written and utterly plausible.”—Michael Palmer, New York Times bestselling author of The Society
“Bristling with authority, Nelson Erlick’s The Xeno Solution provides just what the doctors order in a medical thriller and then some: a tight, original plot, terrific pacing, and a fear quotient that’s off the charts.”—John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of The Motive
“An explosive read . . . in the style of Michael Crichton and Robin Cook.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer on GermLine
