About Larry Kahn

Larry Kahn, the author of The Jinx and King of Paine, toiled for twenty years as an attorney in the fast-paced world of domestic and international mergers and acquisitions, 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.

Review by: Linda Phillips on Aug. 07, 2011 :
The plot in this book is so different but at the same time so believable. One almost believes that they are reading history with answers to questions that have never been answered. This book is very well written and an excellent read.

Review by: Readin Chillin on July 28, 2011 :
Jinx is a read that the one must push through a first few chapters before jumping off into the spice and fast ride. It is a change of pace to start slowly and then build up to the excitement, deep and thought provoking.

Fascinating read. Starts a little slow but picks up fast. Couldn't put it down after about 100 pages. Takes you to the brink of political reality and almost has you believing anything is possible.

Review by: Brenda Alldredge on April 10, 2011 :
This is one great book. It has an intriguing plot with characters you can love and others who are so evil that you want to shoot them personally. I love the parts in which the two young lawyers speak from the heart about matters not always so easy to verbalize. This is no wishy-washy surface-only novel. It is mermerizing, one I will not soon forget.
