The Prodigal Son: A Carmine Delmonico Novel
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.

This was good descriptive writing and good characters with lot of plot twists, but though most of it, the result was pretty visible. I didn't find many surprises in the "thriller", but I did like reading it. Read full review

Kinda disappointed with this one, it was kinda too easy and felt like she wrote it just to get some money out of it... Read full review
