About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

A young woman, her badly beaten body covered in pages written in Arabic, is found unconscious in the Jerusalem hills. Is she just another victim of a random terrorist attack?

A search for a bone marrow donor for a young leukemia patient leads to the unsuspected discovery that an unlikely hospital employee carries a genetic mutation that caused the fatal mad cow disease.

The intertwining of these two scenarios forms a complex web. The victim's complicated background leads Israeli authorities to suspect that somebody from her past or present may want her dead. Her professional life leads her colleagues to suspect the unknown carrier of the mutation may have been trying to conceal his identity.

Secrets - Personal secrets, family secrets and official secrets. Secrets from the past, from the horrors of the holocaust and then secrets from today. Everyone has secrets.

Against a background of the second civil uprising in the Palestinian Authority (the Intifada), the different lines of investigation, official and unofficial, political and personal, dramatically come together. But will all secrets be revealed in the end?

Ruth Gabizon’s first novel is more than just an intriguing mystery. As a bio-chemist, she also explores scientific and ethical considerations connected with genetic late onset diseases; diseases whose appearance in the future changes the lives of their victims in the present .

Deftly constructed at 320 pages, A Political Mutation is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Thrillers category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, A Political Mutation meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $16.95.
