Post Mortem Press is pleased to announce the release of Edward J. McFadden’s first novel, The Black Death of Babylon.
Don Oberbier investigated anomalies, but he had never encountered one as powerful as the Black Death of Babylon. When a Professor at prestigious Babylon University snaps and starts killing people with the disease, Don has the campus quarantined. He learns that the university’s alumni directory contains a list of those to be murdered, and the investigation picks up speed as Don tries to catch the killer before everyone on the list is infected.
Some advance praise for The Black Death of Babylon:
The story is beautifully written—this allows seasoned fans of mystery, horror, and SF to find this book irresistibly hard to put down. –Michael Laimo, author of Dead Souls and Deep in the Darkness.
A fun, dark, globe-hopping adventure that’s part action thriller, party mystery, and part atmospheric horror tale.” —Tom Piccirilli, author of The Last Kind Words, two time International Thriller award winner, and four time Bram Stoker award winner.
