Publisher's Summary

The hair-raising suspense of The General's Daughter... the wry wit of The Gold Coast... this is vintage Nelson DeMille at the peak of his originality and the height of his powers...
Wounded in the line of duty, NYPD homicide cop John Corey is convalescing in rural eastern Long Island when an attractive young couple he knows is found shot to death on the family patio. The victims were biologists at Plum Island, a research site rumored to be an incubator for germ warfare. Suddenly, a local double murder takes on shattering global implications - and thrusts Corey and two extraordinary women into a dangerous search for the secret of Plum Island....


What the Critics Say

“DeMille's Mike Hammer-like cop is a chuckle-provoking winner, and the plot cleverly combines biological hazards and shiver-me-timbers pirate legends. An entertaining mix from the big-selling DeMille.” (Booklist)
“Heavy wisecracking keeps the fun flowing as DeMille cranks up a thrilling, entertaining plot.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Thanks Nelson for bringing an oldy to AUDIBLE

I have been hooked on Audio books for about 2 years now. I have already listened to ALL the John Corey books. Love them all and the personality. I get so dissapointed when I see there are earlier books in a series that arent available in Audible... Or even worse.. Abridged versions (chills).... 1/4 way into this book I had figured this was my favorite John Corey book to date!. I am about 30 min from the end of the book.

A good FUN story line, Not the same old same old plot... again. I cant believe John Corey was that sarcastic back THEN. Feels like he was more a smart ass then then in Lion's Game. I love thr Humor, the depth of the plot. No boring spots... One of my top 10 Audibles for sure..... and Thanks again for Scott Brick!!

narrated to perfection

Scott Brick does it again! The book is pretty good, but his performance of agent John Corey is superb. Great way to get the series going.
