Plum Island is where we meet John Corey—the battle-hardened detective at the center of DeMille’s bestselling series. Wounded in the line of duty, the NYPD homicide detective convalesces in the Long Island township of Southold, home to farmers, fishermen—and at least one killer. Tom and Judy Gordon, a young, attractive couple Corey knows, have been found on their patio, each with a bullet in the head. The local police chief, Sylvester Maxwell, wants Corey's big-city expertise, but Maxwell gets more than he bargained for.
The early signs point to a burglary gone wrong. But because the Gordons were biologists at Plum Island, the offshore animal disease research site rumored to be involved in germ warfare, it isn't long before the media is suggesting that the Gordons stole something very deadly. Suddenly a local double murder becomes a crime with national and worldwide implications.
I have to give you fair warning—once you read the first book in this addictive series, you won’t want to stop until you’ve read them all.
