For Immediate Release September 25, 2013 – Phoenix, AZ. —  Internationally recognized research neurologist releases his new thriller, Shadow of Eden, which jumped to #3 on Amazon’s Medical Fiction list within 4 weeks of its release. Written by Louis Kirby, MD, Shadow of Eden is available on Amazon in print and kindle format. Shadow of Eden tells the story about the stunningly effective new weight loss drug that is more ubiquitous than Tylenol and more fabled than Viagra, and how it rips through a society obsessed with attaining physical beauty at all costs . . . yet it harbors a latent deadly side effect, putting millions at risk. As Dr. Steve James races to diagnose patients suffering from an irreversible brain disease, an increasingly erratic U.S. President struggles to manage a rapidly escalating crisis with China that catapults the country to the brink of war, while a charismatic drug company CEO dispatches an assassin to keep Dr. James from putting it all together. “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.” — 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 Louis Kirby specialized in research and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and served as principal investigator on nearly 400 human clinical trials. He frequently spoke at national and international conferences on drug development and consulted on Alzheimer’s research for the government and the pharmaceutical industry.
