Book Description


Carmine Delmonico returns in this heart-pounding thriller from internationally acclaimed bestselling author Colleen McCullough.

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.
