I haven't read this book, but my friend Chris (who gave it to me to put up onto the site) really enjoyed the book: he says he especially likes the main character and the humor/wit in the book. It's not a "funny book" he says, but the main character is a sarcastic guy.

The first three quarters of the book was fast paced and really fun...the final quarter dragged on too long.

I haven't read a Nelson DeMille in a few years and I forgot how great of an author he is! Plum Island had it all, intrigue,a little romance, it was a real whodunit! Great read!

This is vintage Nelson DeMille at the peak of his originality and the height of his powers...Wounded in the line of duty, NYPD homicide cop John Corey is convalescing in rural eastern Long Island when an attractive young couple he knows is found shot to death on the family patio. The victims were biologists at Plum Island, a research site rumored to be an incubator for germ warfare.Suddenly, a local double murder takes on shattering global implications -- and thrusts Corey and two extraordinary women into a dangerous search for the secret of PLUM ISLAND....Great thriller up to the last few pages.

Even though I live on Long Island and can relate to many of the places mentioned in the book (Yes, Plum Island, Southold , Claudio's and the "haunts" are real), this is a great fast paced book that can be enjoyed by everyone...Gripping!

I think I've read most of Mr Demille's stuff but this, as far as I'm concerned was just not up to my Demille standards..
