Publisher's Description

In the face of a new plague that threatens the world, our forensic heroes investigate the past to save the future— studying evidence from when the Black plague decimated a small english village eyam, pronounced eem, during the seventeenth-century.

After the greedy founders of a scientific research laboratory intentionally infect subjects with a deadly plague in order to develop a lucrative vaccine, the plague spreads beyond the lab’s control. A top-secret government team of scientists covertly begins to research a solution. They turn their attention to the seventeenth-century—the only other time when a widespread plague ravaged the world—for clues on how to prevent this disaster from happening again. In particular, the scientists are interested in how eighty people from the village of Eyam were able to remain virtually untouched by the plague at the height of the Black Death’s deadly reign over Europe. But trouble is afoot in Eyam—grave robberies, grisly murders, and the bizarre reappearance of the Blue Monk—a legendary, spectral figure from the time of the plague. Can he be real? And who’s trying to stop the team from discovering the truth about Eyam? Distinguished authors Paul McCusker and Walt Larimore, M.D. have collaborated to deliver this sweeping, fast-paced novel that spans the globe and transcends time. Sure to leave readers wanting more, The Eyam Factor is a riveting introduction to the authors’ new Time Scene Investigators series.

    This review was written for The Gabon Virus: A Novel.
    The first in the TSI (Time Scene Investigators) series, this book is a nice balance between gripping suspense and scientific reality. The story switches back and forth between 1666 and the present time as the TSI team scrambles desperately to seek a solution to a global pandemic that had it beginnings in the country of Gabon in Africa. The writing is excellent and the plot is believable....all too believable...and I liked the development of the characters involved. If you enjoy international espionage and medical type mysteries, you will enjoy this new series by a couple of great writers.

    This review was written for The Gabon Virus: A Novel.
    I very much enjoyed reading this book. Dr. Larimore has written a number of good books, both educational and narrative, but this is his first time at fiction and I think his transition, along with a talented co-author, was excellent. This book kept me going back as often as I could to keep reading, and I ended up finishing it during the night. The overall premise and evolution of the story is a very real reminder of the dangerous world we live in, from the real perils of deadly viruses, as well as out of control and untreatable bacteria to the radical groups populating our planet that have no moral conscience about taking other lives to achieve their evil schemes. As the scientists in the book were able to create a suitable antidote, one can only hope that science will be able to keep up with these dangerous illnesses to keep them in check. Along with a refreshing paucity of gratuitous language and sexual content, was a spiritual message that blended well in the narrative without the reader feeling that the Bible or some doctrine was "thumped" over their head. A message of the love of God and His work in our lives is so important for this world.Bravo on your first venture into the world of fiction writing.

    This review was written for The Gabon Virus: A Novel.
    TSI: The Gabon Virus is well written and easy to read. The book captured my attention on page one and each chapter drew me further into the plotline. Larimore & McCusker hooked me and left me wanting the next TSI novel, before I completed the first book. The Gabon Virus opened my eyes to the possibility of a pandemic virus that could effect the entire world. I am a fan of Larimore's autobiographical and medical works; I hope this is the first of many novels from Larimore.
