About the book:

TIME SCENE INVESTIGATORS

An ancient disease, a modern pandemic, and the one person who offers hope for a cure has been dead for 350 years

In 1666, a horrible disease took the lives of almost every person in Eyam (pronounced Eem), England. Helping the sick and the dying was the mysterious and ghostlike Blue Monk, whose strange appearance terrified even those who were comforted by him.

More than three centuries later the disease has returned, more virulent than before. Every day more people are infected; every hour more die.

The lives of millions rest in the hands of a bio-team — the Time Scene Investigators — that studies history to find cures for modern diseases. But the newest member of the team, Dr. Mark Carlson, has suffered a heartbreaking loss.

With every tick of the clock the world approaches a global pandemic. A race against time becomes a race across continents — to find a frightened boy who is carrying and spreading the disease wherever he goes, to thwart the machinations of corporate greed and fanatical sabotage, and to find the connection between a great tragedy of the past and a potential catastrophe of the present. Our present.


This book may become tomorrow's headline.

Sounds interesting. I'd seen the title somewhere. Thought it might be some kind of play on CSI. Guess not. Still might be a good read.

Looks really interesting. Could we face another devastatingly deadly pandemic (swine flu aside)? I believe so, but I hope not!

When I read a review elsewhere also, I thought the same as you--This could be tomorrow's headline. A very interesting book. Please add me to the contest. Thanks.

Thank you for the entry.

I do look around and think something this devastating could happen. History repeats itself, and throughout time we have battled incurable pandemics. I won't push Swine Flu H1N1 aside, as the latest reports from WHO World Health Organization, say this new strain of the flu, could be as bad as the 1918 Pandemic. I wouldn't be surprised, but also I will not dwell on the what ifs.

Suspense always draws me. I like the connection of history with future. I think it could really happen. Hope not.

What intrigues me about this book is that the plague returns after more than three centuries.

I do believe something like this will happen again:

Revelation 11:6
These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

Oh, I've had this book on my wishlist for a while. It's right up my alley of genres.
What intrigues you about this book?
This is my favorite type of book to read - medical illness threatening the world
Do you think something like this could happen in real life in the next few years?
Yeah, I think our current technology could certainly cause this. Whether as an act of terrorism and deliberately released or an accident, with global travel if a virus like this gets loose it would spread rapidly.
