I probably wouldnt have picked up this book if it werent for a group I was in suggesting it. I have never read anything by this author, and to be honest I never really heard of him before this.I really enjoyed this book. It started off a little slowly, and the main character John Corey was such a sarcastic SOB that he was great! I liked his style and his humor... although Im not sure I was really supposed to like him.

John is a homicide detective with the NYPD and is currently recuperating in the North Fork of Long Island from being shot three times. He is approached by the local sheriff Max to help with a double murder. John is reluctant to help, and the only reason he does help is because he knows the victims.The case itself, a wife and husband are found outside their home dead. The next door neighbor insists that they came home late on their boat, but never heard the gun going off.

The problem that makes this case so dangerous, the couple worked on Plum Island which contains a virus and bacteria research facility. Of course they only look at diseases that affect animals, because the US government has signed a policy stating they do not do germ warfare research. Yeah. Okay. So the feds, the CIA, the local police and whoever else has a badge, is searching to see if the couple was killed because of their job on the island.

Did they steal a deadly virus that can wipe out the world, did they steal a vaccine so they could make themselves billions of dollars or is this just a case of a home burglary gone wrong. John Corey thinks he knows, and he thinks that he is the only one who can solve this case.After the beginning, maybe about 20-30 pages, the book really picked up the pace and John made the book interesting. His theories were intriguing, and his humor and sarcasm kept me in touch with his character. I liked that I wasnt able to guess what was really going on, and that there were a few surprises along the way.

I also liked the setting of the book and that its in close proximity to where I live, and I have actually been to some of the places mentioned.I just found out that this is the first in a series, so Im going to look into the next book.
