Vector by Robin Cook

Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery are again featured as two almost-involved forensic pathologists. The threat this time is bio-terrorism from white supremacists, right-wing militias, and disaffected Russian immigrants. I found this book to be one of Robin Cook’s better offerings with less gratuitous medical jargon and more direct action.

If you’ve tolerated other Robin Cook novels well, I can highly recommend this one. If you’ve never read Robin Cook before, be prepared for his emphasis on science and plot details and extensive explanations/tutorials, much like hard science fiction, but without the world creation aspects.
