Praise for The Vesuvius Isotope

Kristen Elise's debut thriller, The Vesuvius Isotope, offers adventure and knowledge for anyone with an interest in medicine, history, and Cleopatra. She intricately weaves visceral locations in Southern Italy and Egypt with a realistic heroine forced to solve her husband's murder. Katrina Stone is an intimidatingly brilliant biological researcher, but when faced with unfamiliar cultures, languages and an untrustworthy mortician, she's forced to find a new determination and strength within herself that even Cleopatra would have envied.

From the ancient ruins beneath Mount Vesuvius, a two-thousand-year-old document has emerged. It is the only text ever attributed to the ambitious, inquisitive, and cryptic last pharaoh of Egypt...

When her Nobel laureate husband is murdered, biologist Katrina Stone can no longer ignore the secrecy that has increasingly pervaded his recent behavior. Her search for answers leads to a two-thousand-year-old medical mystery and the life of one of history’s most enigmatic women. Following the trail forged by her late husband, Katrina must separate truth from legend as she chases medicine from ancient Italy and Egypt to a clandestine modern-day war. Her quest will reveal a legacy of greed and murder and resurrect an ancient plague into the twenty-first century.

Kristen Elise, Ph.D. is a drug discovery biologist and the author of The Vesuvius Isotope and The Death Row Complex. She lives in San Diego, California, with her husband, stepson, and three canine children.
