Vector


From the undisputed master of the medical thriller comes Vector, a riveting thriller by Robin Cook that speculates about the horror of bioterrorism.

New York cab driver Yuri Davydov is a disgruntled Russian immigrant ready to lash out at his adoptive nation, which he believes has denied him the American Dream. As a former technician in the Soviet Union's biological weapons system, Yuri knows how to wreak havoc in his new home. But before he executes his masterpiece of vengeance, he experiments first on selected targets.

Dr Jack Stapleton begins to witness some unusual cases in his capacity as forensic pathologist in the City medical examiner's office. A Greek immigrant apparently succumbs to sudden overwhelming pneumonia, while an obese Afro-American woman collapses with acute respiratory distress.

When an unexpected coincidence suggests to Jack that these seemingly unrelated deaths are actually connected murders, his colleagues and superiors remain skeptical. Meanwhile he is taking himself deeper into deadly danger – but can he reach the heart of the puzzle before Davydov and his associates unleash into the streets of New York the ultimate terror: a modern bio-weapon?
