"The Champion Maker," a timely and thought-provoking thriller, has been published through Lulu Press. Featuring an original concept centered on the growing controversy of gene doping in professional sports, this novel will appeal to runners, scientists, and suspense thriller lovers.

Attorney Kevin Joseph has reissued his controversial 2005 suspense thriller, "The Champion Maker," through Lulu Press. Popular among runners, those with an interest in genetic engineering, and readers of intelligent suspense fiction, "The Champion Maker" has received high praise from the Midwest Book Review:

“ . . . Gene enhancement is a very real possibility in the relatively short term future, and with the sports industry's problems with steroids and other chemical enhancements, can gene therapy based enhancements be far behind? In The Champion Maker, author Kevin Joseph has created a genuine thriller whose basic concept could well be tomorrow's headlines. Highly recommended reading, especially for sports enthusiasts!"

Kevin Joseph drew on his legal background, experience as a collegiate runner and meticulous research to craft an authentic novel that is both entertaining and thought- provoking. With many experts predicting that athletes will begin experimenting with gene doping in the run-up to the 2008 Olympics, the line between fact and fiction may soon blur in this controversial area.
