Read full description of the books:
Keep in mind that I read this book more than 15 years ago and still, the story is as vivid today as it was then. Damn. That is the genius that is Nelson Demille.
We are introduced to Detective John Corey, formerly of the New York police department but, recently retired because some nefarious characters thought it okay to turn John into a human colander.
The book starts with a convalescing John who wants nothing more than to drink beer while relaxing at his Uncle's Long Island beach house.
When two prominent scientists (who worked at a secret research faclity on Plum Island) are murdered, John is drafted to investigate the deaths. With acerbic wit and deliberate misdirection, he goes on to solve the case.
The humor in this book was unexpected yet it was exactly what was required in order to elevate the story beyond the mundane.
Be sure to read The Lion's Game as well, which is a book that, although published in 2000, portends the 9/11 tragedy with uncanny accuracy.
