Shadow of Eden is a chilling, prophetic thriller that will keep you up late with exciting action and unexpected twists. Seeley James author of The Geneva Decision.

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.

Shadow of Eden is a fast-paced and fun medical thriller.  It's a great read and I am so glad it's finally available on my Nook.  I saw the reviews on Amazon and have been waiting to see if it was as good as everyone said.  It's even better!  Highly recommend.

I am so glad I purchased this book. I started reading this before an appointment. I almost missed it because i didn't want to put it down. I continued to tell myself "only one more page, and after this chapter". I have not been taken in by a book like this in years. I refuse to be a "Harriet K" in reviews, however I cannot express how much I enjoyed this book. A true page turner that keeps you on the edge of your seat. My only regret with this book is that I've finished it, and I want more by this author! My big question is whether the author is using a pen name, has published other works, and if there are other thrillers in the works for publishing in the near future.

This book grabbed my attention from the very beginning. Chock full of humor action and heart ache. I would have given it five stars but there was a little too much vulgarity for me. Over all a great read.
