New York City cab driver Yuri Davydov is a disgruntled Russian immigrant poised to lash out at the adoptive nation he believes has denied him the American Dream. A former technician in the Soviet biological weapons system, Yuri possesses the knowledge to wreak havoc in his new home. But before he executes his plan city-wide, he experiments first on his suspicious live-in girlfriend, then on a few poor-tipping fares.... Forensic pathologists Dr. Jack Stapleton and Dr. Laurie Montgomery (both last seen in Chromosome 6) begin to witness some unusual cases in the city's medical examiner's office. But the question soon becomes whether the pair will solve the puzzle before Yuri unleashes into the streets of New York the ultimate terror: a modern bioweapon. With signature skill, Robin Cook has crafted a page-turning thriller rooted in up-to-the-minute biotechnology. Vector is all-too-plausible fiction at its terrifying best.

What foresight. This book was written pre 9/11. I was glued, for the most part, to this story from the beginning. I wasn't too impressed with the ending. It was worth my time to read.

This book is a series of two Medical Examiner's in New York that alway seem to get into some sort of trouble as they solve the most unique crimes while still finding time to sort through their private lives.....Can't say more about Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton. Several books are currently available in this series: Vector, Marker, Contagion and chromosone 6 ...Crisis is the latest in the series. You will throughly enjoy them....once you start reading you can't put them down plus you learn so much about the medical field and the scary things that truly go on inside their quiet walls where they don't necessarily want the public to know about.
