Abstract: In this paper we define a two-variable, generic Hecke algebra, $ \mathcal H$, for each complex reflection group $ G(b,1,n)$. The algebra $ \mathcal H$ specializes to the group algebra of $ G(b,1,n)$ and also to an endomorphism algebra of a representation of $ \operatorname{GL}_n(\mathbb{F}_q)$ induced from a solvable subgroup. We construct Kazhdan-Lusztig ``$ R$-polynomials'' for $ \mathcal{H}$ and show that they may be used to define a partial order on $ G(b,1,n)$. Using a generalization of Deodhar's notion of distinguished subexpressions we give a closed formula for the $ R$-polynomials. After passing to a one-variable quotient of the ring of scalars, we construct Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials for $ \mathcal H$ that reduce to the usual Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials for the symmetric group when $ b=1$.
