Item Description...
When a top-secret government team of scientists covertly begins to research a solution to a deadly plague, they turn their attention to the seventeenth century--when the Black Plague reigned over Europe and decimated the small English village of Eyam--for clues on how to prevent a similar disaster from happening.

Publishers 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.

Decent Thriller Marred By A Bit Too Much Theology  Mar 22, 2010
This story is about a killer disease, a particularly virulent form of Ebola, and for the most part, it delivers as a decent thriller.

There is a lot going on with an evil pharmaceutical company behind the original outbreak due to experiments that either went awry or were deliberately sabotaged by the second set of adversaries, a back-to-earth bunch of whackos bent on annihilating the human race.

Our intrepid heroes have to race against time to find out what is going on and how to cure it. Mark, one of the MC's is damaged goods from an incident where his child dies. Another character, the general, is after his grandson who is a very dangerous vector. Then there is the sort-of love interest, Nora. Mark likes her and she likes him, but this is where things start to veer off into theology-land.

There are plenty of religious references that go right along with the plot. The history of the Blue Monks and the use of the Anglican church in Eyam are well done. However, when it comes to the heroes Mark and Nora, things start to veer into heavy theological musings. Just when I was about to throw it down with the feeling I was being preached to, the authors back off and get back to the adventure. Throughout the story, they border on this veering from a great thriller to a bible story without quite going over the edge, but collectively, it was enough to make me wary.

If I'd known the Christian leanings of this book, I probably never would have picked it up. I should have suspected something when I saw it was published by Howard press, a press I'd never heard of. I sure couldn't tell by the cover blurb. I guess there were hints here and there if I'd scanned the inside of the book a bit better. One of the authors is involved with Focus on the Family. There are a set of discussion questions at the end that clearly demonstrate where these guys are coming from. The questions clearly make it sound like a bible lesson.

Still, if it weren't for the blatant Christian bent of this story, it would have been a five star thriller. However, I think I'll pass on their next one. If you are a devout Christian, or even a casual one, this might be the book for you. For me, there are plenty of other thrillers out there that keep away from preaching.
Level 4 viruses  Mar 14, 2010
I saw this book at a bookstore and thought it might be interesting. Turned out I was correct. Suspense, terror, and disease especially a disease being manipulated by man makes for a very exciting read.

There were Christian overtures to this book but it didn't get in the way of the story and in fact made it more interesting as a read. This is a fiction book but we all know that in today's world Ebola is just a flight away from any major city in the world. I have always found Ebola to be fascinating and add to it the Spanish flu and the 14th Century plague and you've got all the elements for a page turning thriller.

I look forward to the next book by the authors if they can keep that tension and storyline going. Pandemics are not always a great read but this one was truly frightening in the scope of what could happen one day.
Page turner - WOW!  Jan 2, 2010
This book is a serious page turner. Continuous action, hard to put down and well focused in these difficulty times. The heroic "Ludlum"esque characters make it a great read for the thriller lover and the spiritual backdrop meets the needs of those desiring a clean read safe for any audience. I await the next TSI novel and hope it flows a swell. Bravo to the authors!
Great story  Dec 4, 2009
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.
Buckle your seat belt  Nov 18, 2009
As a physician I very much enjoy medical-oriented mysteries and am an avid reader of Robin Cooks novels. The Gabon virus ranks right up there and I cannot wait for a sequel. Open the book, start reading and try putting it down - very hard to do. If this were a TV series it would hold attention like Jack Bauer's 24 as things happen very fast! One is constantly wanting to turn the page to see what is next. The entire plot is incredibly believable which makes it even more scary. The medical sophistication of virology is their but Walt Larimore is a master at making anyone understand complex medical issues. I highly recommend this book for all. Last but not least, if you are a medical professional and do not know what argyria is, and I sure must have missed that day in med school - buy this book!
