TSI: The Influenza Bomb is out. Get your autographed copies here.
My second novel, co-written with my dear friend, Paul McCusker is out as of June 1st. This is a sequel to last summer’s TSI: The Gabon Virus.
You can read a sample chapter by clicking here, then finding the book cover, and clicking on “Browse Inside.”
Here are a few early reviews:
Crisp prose, never-slowing action, a frighteningly plausible plot that weaves impeccably through history and across international borders, all tempered with a tender reminder of divine forgiveness.
– Jeanette Windle
This is an international thriller with chilling relevance today. The authors have done their homework and written a totally realistic novel that may keep you awake at night! You will never again read about H1N1 outbreaks without wondering about their origins.
– Dorothy Cowling, Creator and Book Reviewer, The List
Engaging. Innovative. Entertaining. And downright scary. Pray this story never becomes a news headline. Larimore and McCusker have penned an unforgettable tale!
– Alton Gansky, novelist
McCusker and Larimore have crafted a chilling tale of bioterrorism. Peppered with scientific details that bring the story to life, The Influenza Bomb is delightfully disturbing and will leave the reader with a ghastly list of ‘what ifs’ that will haunt the reader long after the last page.
– Harry Kraus, MD, Bestselling Author, The Six-Liter Club and Salty Like Blood
Ripped from today’s headlines, this chilling thriller is very plausible as bioterrorism is a real threat to this nation’s security. Reading like a cross between Dan Brown and Frederick Forsyth fans will enjoy the high octane over the top of the Kremlin and German Alps frantic save the world thriller as the Time Scene Investigators are reaching the doomsday clock countdown with The Influenza Bomb ignition.
– Harriet Klausner, #1 Reviewer for Amazon.com

Workplace Grace released last month
The publisher writes: Workplace Grace flies in the face of almost everything you’ve ever read or heard about evangelism.
This book is written for all Christians who may not think they have a gift for evangelism but want their lives to have an impact on the people around them. It describes evangelism as a process and helps you understand how your skills and God-given gifts can easily be used to draw customers, clients, and coworkers to new life in Jesus Christ.
Events of the last month
May 8-24: We’re back from the trip-of-a-lifetime in Italy. We LOVE Italy and had a wonderful trip there. Our excuse was to be with dear friends (with whom we practiced in Kissimmee, FL, from 1985 through 2001, John and Cleta Hartman) who have invited us to the wedding of their youngest daughter, Annie, at St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City on Friday, May 21. Our itinerary included Rome, Venice, Cinque Terre, Carrara, Pisa, and Florence.
You can visit Italy vicariously and attend the wedding by reading our blog and enjoying our pictures of the trip starting here.
