In the late 1970's and early 1980's, a government-backed genetic experiment went out of control. Two doctors, Fred Taylor and Robert Paynter, involved in this clinical study, try to save the lives of some of the babies conceived by getting them away and into the arms of husbands and wives unable to conceive. Now years have passed, and one of the especially dangerous clones is out for vengeance. The secretary at the genetic experiment site, Agnes Richardson, is killed first, in Texas. The action switches to New Jersey where James Masterson, one of the babies, is now grown and lives in the house of his beloved, now deceased adoptive parents. In the midst of gunfire and action, James meets his twin, Kevin, and then as the scene moves to Ohio, James and Kevin meet their other brother, Doug. Are these triplets able to work with the invincible Drs. Taylor and Paynter to thwart government intervention and attacks from clones gone wrong?

Author Rane has created a fast-moving thriller with fights, car chases and lots of suspense as people run in and out of towns and hospitals from New Jersey to Ohio, taking aim at each other. If the basic theme was better organized, "Multiples of Six" would be a blockbuster of a novel. There is too much confusion in the beginning as to what is going on and too many characters coming at the reader. The dialogue among the characters is first-rate and the action superb, but the plot does need smoothing. Once this is done, Andy Rane will have a fabulous beginning to a great series that many readers will follow.
