About the Book

David Lorca escapes the barrio in San Antonio, Texas and achieves much success in the software and pharmaceutical business. In spite of his success and accompanying wealth he is still haunted by the racism he experienced as a youth.

Knowing that traditional approaches to solving racism have had little or no success he turns to science for answers. David Lorca seeks out a Gypsy geneticist that has been under the control of Neo Nazis for most of his life for help. After many years of clandestine research the Captain, the Gypsy geneticist’s name, discovers the racist gene in humans’ DNA.

The euphoria of having discovered the racist gene is short lived. David commands the Captain to find a way of eliminating the gene from peoples’ DNA. A trusted member of David’s team betrays him and decides to sell the discovery to an arms dealer who represents the world’s power brokers. The self anointed world power brokers come to the conclusion that they must stop David and the Captain from eliminating racism at any cost.

About the Author

Daniel G. Hernández was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. In 1969 he left home and journeyed to the University of Wisconsin at Madison. With a college degree in hand he returned to San Antonio and started his construction business. Daniel took time out from his career in the construction industry to serve, at the request of the Mayor and San Antonio City Council Members, on various boards and commissions. His commitment to the City of San Antonio, and in particular to the Chicano Community, grew to the point that he left the construction industry and joined the nonprofit world. Daniel became the Executive Director of The Avenida Guadalupe Association and later became President and Chief Executive Officer of The Mexican American Unity Council; both are community based organizations in San Antonio, Texas. Daniel is presently working on his second novel, The Alamo Affair. Daniel’s favorite hobby is long distance running; he has run over twenty marathons, including the Boston Marathon.
