If you like thrillers from authors like A.G. Riddle, Michael Crichton, or Kathy Reichs, you're going to love Louis Kirby. But don't start the book anywhere near bedtime, the first seven chapters won't let you go; and the rest will keep you awake until the end. Shadow of Eden weaves a fascinating story that will fill you with page-turning anxiety and keep you engaged for hours. The bottom line: Shadow of Eden is a chilling, prophetic thriller and a terrific début that will keep you up late with exciting action and unexpected twists. From Alan Wanderer author of AnaphylaxisSHADOW OF EDEN will capture your total attention once you start it. You will be constantly on the edge by the disturbing theme of malicious intent by a pharmaceutical company, such as the opening scene of a pilot gone mad and the progression to a potential war between China and the U.S.A. Dr. Kirby has written a thriller that has a believable medical theme with worldwide implications comparable to that of Dan Brown's INFERNO. Both take you through pathways of suspense knowing world health is threatened. As a novelist of a medical thriller, I believe this should end up on the screen.
From the Inside Flap
"Great read along the lines of the masters like Clive Cussler and David Baldacci." Luis Enrique
"I could NOT put this book down! It was fast-paced and suspenseful. A pill for weight loss called Eden, a possible international incident with China, corporate greed, and an ordinary doctor flung into the middle of it all. You won't regret reading this book. It is one of the best of this genre I've read in a long time!!" Barbara Furlich
"hits a home run with his first novel, demonstrating amazing command of the subject matter - involving corporate intrigue, geopolitics and medicine. Dr. Kirby weaves an intricate story with incredible skill. Reminiscent of books by Michael Crichton." Jeanne Y
"Outstanding read that I could not put down until complete. The book evokes Mayday by Nelson DeMille except with a twist. If you like Michael Connelley and Nelson DeMille, you will like this one too." S Channen
