Review:

Nelson DeMille's narrative engine is one of the best in the business, and it chugs away in grand style in this story of buried treasure and biological warfare on a tiny spit of land off Long Island. As told by a wry, wounded New York City detective who is drafted to explore a couple of murders, Plum Island is a rich pudding of flavorful (if familiar) ingredients, including a ferocious storm at sea. Other DeMille epics in paperback include By the Rivers of Babylon, The General's Daughter, The Gold Coast, Spencerville, and Word of Honor.

From the Inside Flap:

4 cassettes / 4 hours
Read by David Dukes

AudioBook includes a personal interview with Nelson DeMille


Wounded in the line of duty, NYPD homicide detective John Corey is laid up in the Long Island town of Southold, home to farmers, fishermen -- and at least one killer.

Fast-paced and atmospheric, marked by entrancing characters, incandescent storytelling, and brilliant comic touches, Plum Island is DeMille at his thrill-inducing best.
