Editors Note Carmine Delmonico returns in this heart-pounding thriller from internationally acclaimed bestselling author Colleen McCullough. HOLLOMAN, CONNECTICUT, 1969. A lethal toxin, extracted from the blowfish, is stolen from a laboratory at Chubb University. It kills within minutes and leaves no trace behind, and worried biochemist Dr. Millie Hunter reports the theft at once to her father, Medical Examiner Dr. Patrick O?Donnell. Patrick?s cousin Captain Carmine Delmonico is therefore quick off the mark when the bodies start to mount up. A sudden death at a dinner party followed by another at a gala black-tie event seem at first to be linked only by the poison and the presence of Dr. Jim Hunter, a scientist on the brink of greatness and husband to Millie. A black man married to a white woman, Dr. Jim has faced scandal and prejudice for most of his life, so what would cause him to risk it all now? Is he being framed for murder?and if so, by whom? Carmine and his detectives must follow the trail through the university town?s crowd of eccentrics, no matter how close to home it may lead.
Editors Note 1 When his cousin reports the theft of a lethal and untraceable toxin, Captain Carmine Delmonico investigates a series of sudden deaths implicating a rising scientist who has been targeted with racism and who Delmonico believes is being framed by a killer in the academic community. 35,000 first printing.
