Editorial Reviews


Critical praise for this best selling medical and political thriller
From William Gartner, author of Biotoxin.  
Gripping from page one, Shadow of Eden is that perfect blend of Michael Crichton science and David Baldacci politics that keeps you up late at night compulsively turning to that next page. Brilliantly imagined and flawlessly paced, Dr. Kirby's story leaves you thinking long after you've closed the book. Smart and exciting like a thriller should be. 
From Seeley James author of The Geneva Decision
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 Anaphylaxis
SHADOW 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.

More praise for this Amazon Bestselling medical and political thriller

"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
