Smart and exciting like a thriller should be. William Gartner author of BIOTOXIN.

Shadow of Eden grabs you from the opening pages and never lets you go in a non-stop whirlwind of intrigue, murder, corruption and sabotage. Peter Glassman MD, author of THE HELIOS RAIN

 

. . . Comparable to that of Dan Brown’s INFERNO. Alan Wanderer, MD, author of ANAPHYLAXIS, A MEDICAL THRILLER

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...

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, Kirby’s story leaves you thinking long after you’ve closed the book. Smart and exciting like a thriller should be.

You are what you eat–so don’t eat… Globally, obese or those who perceive themselves overweight need a pill to lose weight– the miracle drug Eden. Eden, the diet pill par excellence with “no significant adverse effects.” A pilot takes it and the plane nearly crashes. Dr. James, one of the original Eden investigators, finds its flaw. A fatal delayed brain degeneration leading to dementia and death. Eden’s makers will kill anyone who exposes the truth, especially Dr. James who must run for his life… As a medical writer and novelist Louis Kirby’s ever current topic of weight loss appears real as it unravels a treatment in non-stop intrigue, murder, corruption and sabotage in the pharmaceutical and political world we live in. If you eat while you read, you won’t when you turn the pages of The Shadow of Eden. Peter Glassman MD, author of THE HELIOS...

Your airplane scene was stunning and credible. Valerie G reviewer

. . . And then suddenly I am totally dragged into this world and fast-moving story that you have created and I am staying up late (!!!) to keep reading just a few more juicy chapters and don’t even want to read “Animal Vegetable Miracle” anymore (or do much of anything in the evening other than sip a cup of tea and continue plowing into it)!  I am actually somewhat mad at you, because it is so good that I am going to have to read it through, which might just jeopardize my ability to finish “AVM” on time for my book club discussion, and then won’t that be embarrassing!   Anyway, your airplane scene was stunning and credible (and I am a pilot) and I am much further along faster than anything I’ve read lately (including my friend Barry’s published thriller) and I even have the new Harry Potter sitting on my bedside waiting for me (which I think is torment for Jonathan, since he’s read it and wants to share that ending with me) but it can wait!  Your writing is just amazing and I am finding it hard to believe that you just whipped this off, in such perfect state.  It reflects a huge amount of hard work!  Are you sure you aren’t a professional writer just coming out from behind some prior pen name and now trying to impress those of us who don’t think of you as a writer?  If now, how in the world did you pull this off?   Anyway, while I have TONS of things I have to do, need to do and want to do, I thank you for giving me something that I really enjoy doing and which does give me some unexpected moments of sheer, titillating relaxation! —Valerie...
