When Clare tries to discover whether there is a connection between Jonas and Sean, she uncovers an all-too-real, unholy conspiracy to use neighborhood drug dealers as unknowing guinea pigs.

Editorial Reviews

"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 of Roachkiller 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.
