We are so excited to welcome back local author Christy Esmahan, who was previously in store for her Cantabria American School trilogy.
Her new book, The Laptev Virus is a total departure from that series, but it's equally phenomenal. Anna says "It's the best medical thriller I've read in years!"
Christy Esmahan grew up Cincinnati. She attended Miami University, and then moved to Spain to complete her doctorate degree. She lived in Spain for over 11 years, and worked as a teacher and an administrator in an American International School. Besides authoring novels, she is a technical translator, and blogs about her experiences in Spain. Christy Esmahan lives in Houston, Texas, with her husband and four children.

Scientists have recently discovered the existence of "megaviruses"-- viruses that are a thousand times larger than the ordinary viruses. What if one of these huge viruses turned out to be a human pathogen?
Christy Esmahan's fourth novel, THE LAPTEV VIRUS, begins with the accidental discovery of just such a virus in the Arctic by an unsuspecting company drilling for oil. Lead researcher Sarah Spallanzani and her team must race against the ticking clock of the short Arctic summer to discover a way to protect workers from the virus before competitors drain the basin of its rich resources...and before anyone else dies from the hemorrhagic fever. Esmahan weaves great characters, excellent timing and an incredibly intriguing plot in this medical thriller.
