Dr. Alex Seacourt, a mild-mannered internist, bumps into a harried man on a busy New York street and unknowingly hurls himself into an evil plot to hold the world hostage through the threat of plutonium poisoning. Seacourt becomes poisoned and - with time running out - races around the world to Russia, Belize, and Las Vegas in an attempt to find an antidote to save himself and the world. Plutonium Murders is a fast-paced thriller with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster. Enemies and friends move among the shadows of frozen Moscow and the jungles of Belize as Dr. Seacourt stumbles through an intriguing maze of secret formulas, sadists and political self-interest. The CIA, the KGB and one of the greatest villains since Hannibal Lechter move in and out of Dr. Seacourt's life as he dodges bullets and sharks in a race against time. Clues and help from some influential - and mysterious - friends guide Seacourt back to the familiar streets of Las Vegas where he tangles with hotel security as well as Zigfried and Roy's famous white tigers before finding himself high atop Hoover Dam. The climactic scene on the dam involves police cars, assassins, helicopters and bothersome television reporters and a final surprise twist will leave you breathless.
