"If the characters from Less Than Zero and The Secret History woke up in a novel by Philip K. Dick, they'd get along famously with the precocious students of Stansbury." –Dustin Thomason, bestselling author of The Rule of Four A thriller set in the future at an ultra-elite prep school that asks: what is the price of perfection? In the year 2036, the world's best boarding school is the Stansbury School. The students, better known as specimens, are screened at a young age and then given twelve years of the finest education -- and developmental drug regiment --available. Stansbury graduates -- physically and mentally -- are in a class all by themselves. Four out of five go on to Harvard, Yale or Princeton; twenty out of the top thirty Forbes 500 companies have Stansbury CEOs, eight graduates have become U. S. Senators, and two sit on the Supreme Court. But when a string of alumni are murdered, school officials -- looking to avoid a public relations disaster -- decide to keep the police in the dark. They discreetly ask the school's Valedictorian to solve the mystery, but he discovers that the most obvious culprit (the school's resident chemically imbalanced delinquent -- and the Valedictorian's nemesis) is being framed. Together, the two unlikely allies uncover a massive conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the Stansbury administration and the United States government. A riveting thriller about America's obsession with genius and the potential of youth, Dave Kalstein's Prodigy is not only a chilling vision of the very near future, it's an authentic coming-of-age story for the 21st Century.

In the Shadow of the Prodigy
Set in 1994, on the eve of the internet and financial revolutions of the nineties, this novel tells the story of a young historian in search of permanent employment through a number of encounters and discussions with old and new friends. These discussions, mainly about the fears and hopes that come with rapid social change, make this a novel of ideas. However, it is also a tale of loyalty and betrayal, mystery and romance. When the young man’s research accidentally threatens to expose a botched false-flag operation dating from just prior to WWII, he finds that the affair casts a shadow over every aspect of his life, not the least his love for the daughter of a man who may have played a major part in its deadly cover-up.
