Medievalist professor Clare Malley investigates the mystery behind an apparent miracle in the Bronx and runs afoul of drug dealers, a cagey scientist -- and a sociopathic fiddler. Erica Obey delivers style and suspense in this well written novel that deftly combines weird science with religious arcana. - Richie Narvaez, author ofRoachkiller and Other Stories. Erica Obey just keeps getting better and better. There are so many reasons to read The Lazarus Vector - the taut, muscular prose, the quirky, compelling characters - and a story so filled with surprising twists you may find yourself turning pages late into the night. A strikingly original thriller, The Lazarus Vector is a winner. Whether you're already a fan or new to Obey's work, you're in for a treat. - C.E. Lawrence, author of the Lee Campbell thriller series.
There are three places you can find Erica when she's not writing or teaching courses on mystery fiction and Arthurian Romance at Fordham University: on a hiking trail, in her garden, or at the back of the pack in her local road race. Her favorite kind of vacation is backpacking across Dartmoor or among the hills of Wales in order to find new and exciting legends to inspire her own writing. After she graduated from Yale University, her interest in folklore and story led her to an M.A. in Creative Writing from City College of New York and a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the City University of New York, where she published articles and a book about female folklorists of the nineteenth century before she decided she'd rather be writing the stories herself.
