9780989449304: Shadow of Eden

                 Chillingly plausible and terrifying. You'll never take another pill without thinking of Shadow of Eden. Peter Glassman MD, author of THE HELIOS RAIN.

A call for a physician on board a 747 awakens Dr. Steve James. He is ushered into the cockpit where he finds an unconscious copilot and a delusional captain. Moments later, he is the only conscious person in the cockpit as it plunges headlong toward Washington DC.

Secretary of State Linda Resnick and President Robert Dixon watch in horror as China's army ruthlessly kills 30,000 peaceful worshippers in Hong Kong, broadcast by a sole but ill fated TV camera crew. A visibly shaken President Dixon uncharacteristically vows revenge.  

Dr. James is confronted by the puzzling and relentlessly progressive brain illness of the 747 Captain and a young woman, an illness that may be the forerunner to thousands more getting the invariably fatal illness. But suddenly he is faced with deadly attempts on his and his family's life. He will go to any length to protect them but he still has no idea why he is in the assassin's crosshairs.

Secretary Resnick and the White House Staff become alarmed as President Dixon becomes increasingly erratic in his management of the escalating military confrontation with China.

Steve James persistent investigations quickly makes him the pivotal threat to an international conspiracy that is played out in the highest office in the land -- with an all out effort to kill him before he can pull all the pieces together.

With his deep medical experience and his highly placed political and military informants, Kirby delivers a smart, devastatingly intense, and jaw-droppingly realistic medical and political thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last riveting page.

From the Inside Flap:

                 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

"Taut, gripping; full of action, political intrigue and greedy pharmaceutical companies. Conrad Samayoa

"...highly recommend for anyone who enjoys medical or political thrillers.." Betty Stump

"Great Medical Suspense. This book is a great example of an outstanding medical thriller." J Hollett

"...as good as anything Michael Crichton has written and his political intrigue rivals Baldacci." Chris Evans

Book Description Scale Publishing, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Chillingly plausible and terrifying. You ll never take another pill without thinking of Shadow of Eden. Peter Glassman MD, author of THE HELIOS RAIN. Eden, the miraculous new weight loss drug, rips through a society intoxicated by the allure of attainable physical perfection. It is at once more ubiquitous than Tylenol and more fabled than Viagra . . . yet it harbors a deadly secret, putting millions at risk. Faced with the puzzle of a crazed airline pilot and a young woman with horrifying delusions, Dr. Steve James discovers Eden s fatal flaw and suddenly finds himself, and his family, in the crosshairs of a determined assassin. In Washington, D.C., bewildered White House staffers and Cabinet members scramble to cover up President Dixon s alarmingly erratic behavior while managing an escalating confrontation with China. Dr. James, running from the relentless contract killer, realizes he alone may know what is wrong with the President-with less than twenty-four hours before war begins with China. Beginning with a terrifying dive in a 747, through state of the art medical sleuthing, high stakes political brinksmanship and calculating corporate treachery, Shadow of Eden takes the reader on a non-stop, rollercoaster of intrigue, murder, corruption and sabotage.
