Malthus Revisited: The Cup of Wrath is the fourth novel in the Lindsey McCall medical mystery series. It's quite different from its three predecessors in that there are more obvious supernatural elements in this story than in any of the earlier novels. There are also two 18-year-old girls, one who is brand new, another who was barely mentioned in earlier books. Here are a couple of excepts from the teaser: "Morgan's exceptional gifts were known only to her and to the animals she could understand better than people. For a long time, she told no one about her nightmares. Embarrassed and afraid that no one would believe her, Morgan waited until it was almost too late. Then she confided in her mom's best friend, Dr. Lindsey McCall....The fourth novel in Lin Wilder's popular Lindsey McCall series is her best one yet--combining the innovative medical research her readers have come to admire with a new and terrifying threat to the world's population: a biological timebomb. Vivid characters old and new rampage across the continents of Europe, Asia, and the U.S. to stop the contagion, picking up steam as they head toward a life-or-death climax in the remote Qinghai province of China..."
How do you select the names of your characters?
For important characters, people who are pivotal but not one of the protagonists or antagonists, I research first and last names and wait for the right one to declare itself. Especially necessary for my non-American characters.
Until the person is named, I cannot write a word. Not infrequently, the name of the person appears in my head. Like Lindsey McCall did during a hike in the mountains behind my house. Along with a background of who she was- an interventional Cardiologist and cardiovascular researcher working at the Texas Medical Center in Houston.
Just a year or so, another one appeared: Morgan Gardner…a teenager who would be a central character in the 4th book of the Lindsey McCall medical mystery series. The latest, Malthus Revisited.
The fourth novel in Lin Wilder’s popular Lindsey McCall series is her best one yet—combining the innovative medical research her readers have come to admire with a new and terrifying threat to the world’s population: a biological timebomb. Vivid characters old and new rampage across the continents of Europe, Asia, and the U.S. to stop the contagion, picking up steam as they head toward a life-or-death climax in the remote Qinghai province of China.
Malthus Revisited adds a dystopian element to Wilder’s evolving Lindsey McCall mystery series, and is guaranteed to captivate both her loyal fans and eager newcomers to its last riveting page.
Poetry is the language of the heart; to be written or even to be understood, the heart must be made raw, it must bleed; the psalmist writes circumcised. It is no secret that growth and change- conversion can come only from pain not only felt but assimilated. In a culture averse even to the slightest discomfort, assimilating pain sounds like too tall an order and so it may be.
