Everyone seemed to like Tom and Judy Gordon, two intelligent, young, and attractive scientists found murdered in their waterfront home. When the Manhattan detective John Corey, recovering from bullet wounds at his uncle's house, is brought to the case, he begins to suspect that the Gordons who had worked on the Plum Island's animal research facility might have been stealing and selling genetically-altered viruses. But to whom? And with what consequences? In this atmospheric novel that melds medical mystery, police investigation, and adventure, DeMille returns to Long Island, N.Y., the setting of his enormously popular The Gold Coast.
