NYPD homicide detective John Corey has moved to Long Island, restlessly recuperating from wounds received in the line of duty when he's hired to consult on the murder of Tom and Judy Gordon, biologists who worked on Plum Island, the site of animal disease research for the Department of Agriculture. Were the Gordons murdered because they'd stolen some valuable new vaccine, or even a dreaded virus? They'd obviously outspent their income. Had they been running drugs? Corey doesn't think so, although an ice-chest missing from their home points to something forbidden. He teams up with Beth Penrose, detective, working her first homicide & their visit to Plum Island reveals only that the FBI & CIA have sanitised the place. Then Corey falls in with Emma Whitehouse, an expert on Captain Kidd's lost treasure which is thought to be buried nearby... PLUM ISLAND is a thrilling novel from an author of consummate page-turning skill.This is the title that knocked John Grisham off the top of the US bestseller lists and held the No.1 spot for five weeks.

Simon on
The 10th novel from master storyteller Nelson Demille is a ripper of a mystery thriller...

John Corey is a terrific character - arrogant, sarcastic, witty, brilliant - and actually, he's the reason I kept turning the pages.

Wounded in the line of duty as a New York city cop, he retires to Long Island to recover. A couple is murdered while he's there, and he's brought in by the local guys to help out. Things get worse, and soon Corey is up to his eyeballs in murder and intrigue.

An excellent read...
Matthew on
John Corey is an interesting character. However, this is a fairly simplistic thriller/mystery. It is simply written even if the mystery did keep me turning the pages. Mainly, it lacked heart, but if you are a fan of the thriller genre it would be worth buying. If not, I would steer clear.
