About the author:
Larry Kahn successfully negotiated the fast-paced world of domestic and international mergers and acquisitions for twenty years, first at a major New York law firm and then at an Atlanta Fortune 500 company. He penned The Jinx while on sabbatical in 1999 and is now devoted to writing fiction full time. Many of his more cynical legal clients and associates have accused him of writing fiction full time for many years. He resides in Atlanta with his family.
Larry developed a keen interest in social issues while attending Yale Law School, an idealistic spirit that continues to spice his novels. The vision of a colorblind America in his political thriller The Jinx led to endorsements by leaders of the ACLU, National Urban League and Artists Against Racism. And as the Baby Boomer generation scatters about the country, King of Paine envisions a renewed emphasis on family and tradition in which Americans create for their venerable elders, and ultimately themselves, a peaceful place to die.
King of Paine
“Larry Kahn has managed to create a cast of unforgettable characters, throwing in a bit of sex and misadventure, while infusing it with legal, moral, and ethical dilemmas. To say that I thought the King of Paine was brilliantly written would be an understatement. I sat down to read the book in the morning and was unable to put it down until I read the very last page!”–The Write To Make A Living
“The writing is perfect...Plus, that plot? Holy hell! I never could have seen the twists and turns coming.” –Owl Tell You About It
“...a roller coaster ride of who done it, oops, no they didn’t. But it’s not just that, the story makes you think and ask yourself some really important questions.” –Forbidden Reviews
A desperate patient. A rumored cure. How far would you go to find the fountain of youth?
King of Paine is a sexy, fast-paced suspense novel filled with characters who grapple with a range of intriguing end-of-life issues while everything they care about is at stake. The story follows two investigations, Special Agent Frank Paine's pursuit of a stalker committing a series of kinky Internet crimes and a reporter tracking the disappearance of wealthy senior citizens across the nation. Both paths lead to a hidden enclave where a brilliant biochemist harbors a deadly secret. Somebody is going to die there, and it may be Frank Paine's soulmate. Or him.
Readers who liked The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo or the novels of Greg Iles will enjoy settling in with King of Paine for a sexy, thought-provoking ride.
“I have to admit I’ve heard the comparison between The Girl and the Dragon Tattoo and King of Paine and in my opinion, Kahn is better. I was never bored, in fact I hung onto every word in this story.” –Boekie’s Book Reviews
"King of Paine is a tautly written, absorbing page-turner. I usually can guess the ending to a police procedural by about the third chapter. This is not the case with Mr. Kahn's wonderful new book...I highly recommend this book." -Hampton Reviews
"King of Paine is the second book I have read this year that I thought would make a great movie... I definitely recommend this one. Once I started reading, I couldn't walk away from it." -From the TBR Pile
