After twenty years of legendary John Corey thrillers, discover the story that started it all with this exclusive special edition of the classic PLUM ISLAND.

NYPD homicide detective John Corey has moved to Long Island, restlessly recuperating from wounds received in the line of duty, when he's hired as a consult on a murder. The victims are Tom and Judy Gordon, biologists who worked on Plum Island, the site of animal disease research for the Department of Agriculture.

Were the Gordons murdered because they'd stolen some valuable new vaccine, or even a dreaded virus? Or had they been running drugs?

Corey teams up with Beth Penrose, a detective working her first homicide, and their visit to Plum Island reveals only that the FBI & CIA have sanitised the place. Then they meet Emma Whitehouse, an expert on Captain Kidd's lost treasure which is thought to be buried nearby...

With a new introduction by the author, this stunning edition of Plum Island is a must-have. This is Corey at his toughest, wittiest best.
