There is a great book called Principles of Biochemistry by A. Lehninger. It does have a nice section on genes - i.e. in the molecular sense of the word, not Mendelian.
Although this is not a genetics book I really recommend you to grab your copy today and start solving the AWESOME end-of-the-chapter problems.

P.S.It is said that, 'If you manage to solve each and every problem in M.Sc. Biotechnology seat in IIT or JNU is virtually guarenteed' !!!

I woulkd recommend u
1.Lewin- Genes (it's Advanced book)
2. Griffiths,Miller,Suzuki,Lewontin,Gelbart-An introduction to genetic analysis("basic" level)- and u have solved selected problems(but solution book u buy separately)
3.And of course if u are interested in biochemistry Voet&Voet-Biochemistry
is the best book.
4. Young,Mueller-Elements of medical genetics is good but not the best
Cheers! :D

I'd go for "An Introduction to Genetic Analysis" by Anthony J. F. Griffiths, Jeffrey H. Miller, David T.Suzuki, Richard C. Lewontin, and William M. Gelbart. Published by WH Freeman.

You can check out the Freeman website at

We used it as the standard text for first year genetics at Cambridge.
