    Library Man

    Library Man is a gripping thriller by Cary Bybee about an alleged purposely mutated virus that ravages the American continent. The terror is so great that the United Nations and the rest of the world prepare in secret to annihilate the United States, lest the disease spread. Victor Garcia is a homeless Vietnam veteran living mostly in Washington D.C. libraries. Within in his photographic mind Victor holds the key to discovering a vaccine and revealing the true workings of an horrific terrorist plot. And the terrorists know it! Library Man is a tense, original novel of life-or-death, one of those compelling reads that are so easy to pick up and so hard to put down! 4/04/04

    Library Man

    Terrorists have let loose a devistating biological weapon. Everyone infected will die a horrible death. As sinister as this act is, it is a cover-up for an even more diabolical plot perpetrated by the U.N. Vic Garcia studied microbiology before he was sent to Vietnam. Upon his return, he was greeted with jeers and scorn. The contempt, the wartime flashbacks, the thought of his mother dying alone while he was overseas finally overwhelmed him. He dropped out of society, living on the streets inside the beltway of the US capitol. Vic spends many hours in the various libraries studying viruses when he comes across a newspaper account of a mysterious disease. It has already killed 250 people in Belize. Using the Bethesda library's equipment, Vic obtains enough information to deduce what the disease is. It's a form of Ebola, the most deadly virus known to mankind. Vic contacts the CDC and not surprisingly, they don't believe him. In fact, they suspect him of releasing the virus on the world. This mistake will cost them millions of lives. This timely book is very exciting and somewhat frightening. It is such a gripping story that the scientific jargon is only occasionally detrimental to its page-turning qualities. In subject matter, this book is quite a departure from his previous books. However, Mr. Bybee once again delivers an outstanding book. I always enjoy his books, and this is no exception. I can't wait to see what he will write next! (For complete review go to MyShelf.com)

    An unlikely hero fights a vicious viral plague

    I read a lot of books as a book review editor for Funseekers Radio Network and I have to rate this one as a top notch thriller. Victor Garcia, a Medal of Honor winner for his heroism in Vietnam, has been a homeless man for 28 years. He has a photographic memory and he spends his free time reading in various federal libraries, particularly any text or article about viruses. When a new virus emerges in the United States he becomes an unlikely consultant for the CDC, as well as becoming a suspect who may have developed the virus himself. As the deadly virus spreads across America he is in a race against time to make sure the vaccine is utilized before the entire country is infected. Other nations are contemplating 'sterilizing' the U.S. with thermonuclear bombs to stop the spread of the illness. This is a book that is hard to put down once you begin reading the excellently written story. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Robert Ludlum, James Patterson, Vince Flynn or Frederick Forsyth.
