9781433207198: Huysman's Pets

Stanley Huysman, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, had spent his later years on far-out experiments never much heeded by the scientific community. Only after Huysman's death does his visionary genius become clear, when his widow, Irma, arranges for Drew Lancaster to write the scientist's biography. As Drew delves into Huysman's notes, he discovers not only that the great scientist had actually been able to induce telepathy in his subjects by genetic manipulation, but also that Huysman's assistant, Clyde Dohemy, has unscrupulously taken over the project in hopes of lucrative funding. When Drew recruits his ex-wife, Irma, and a group of young people who knew about Huysman's experiments to set a trap for Dohemy, they are drawn into a web of secrets involving Senate files, counterfeit money, gambling casinos, and the Secret Service.

From School Library Journal:

YAHuysman's Pets are the result of the final years of research performed by the Nobel Prize-winning geneticist. Drew Lancaster is engaged by Huysman's widow, Irma, to write his biography. Thus begins a chain of circumstances that compel many people to converge on the Pennsylvania home for orphans now run by Huysman's former assistant, Dohemy. The adults around these orphan "kids" are drawn into a widening circle of counterfeit money, secret Senate files, Atlantic City gambling casinos and Secret Service tracking. Drew recruits his ex-wife, Huysman's widow and a group of young people who had previously escaped from Huysman's experiment to set a trap for Dohemy, who is hoping for big money through governmental grants to continue the project. There is no tidy ending for the rescuers or the rescued. Wilhelm has produced another top-notch story, peopled with engaging, warm characters caught in the compelling mysteries of the real and not-so real world. For older YA sci-fi fans. Mary T.
