Overview

Did the perfect company get away with the perfect crime?

They had the perfect business plan. The investors ponied up the millions they needed. The company was humming along on all cylinders.

And then one day they disappeared. Along with all their research, files and computers ... and a vial of the deadly Ebola virus that no one knew they had.

Enter Stephen Blackman, a fifty-something burned out lawyer working his first case as a private investigator. Hired to try and find the missing scientists, Blackman turns up a dead body instead.

And when the FBI arrives on the scene, Blackman can't be sure if they're the good guys or bad. But he's caught up in this high-stakes, high-risk and highly confusing case to find the missing scientists before someone releases the deadly virus on an unsuspecting world.

Blackman bounces against the worlds of international espionage, national politics and high technology in this exciting thriller, the first in a series featuring a different kind of private eye with a taste for tea and a nose for trouble.

    quick paced-surpise ending

    I thought that the plot was well crafted and kept me on the edge of my chair. The characters were especially well developed - I could easily relate to them. All in all a very good read and I'm looking forward to the next Stephen Blackman mystery
