Blue Point native Edward McFadden's "The Black Death of Babylon," is hard to put down, say reviewers.

McFadden is a 1987 Bayport-Blue Point School graduate with three degrees from Long Island colleages and universities. He is currently an assistant dean at Stony Brook University. The book, is described as part action thriller, part mystery, part horror tale and a bit of science fiction.

Some advance praise, from SFScope.com, includes the following:


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.
