Plum Island - Nelson DeMille

Detective John Corey is on leave, recuperating from gunshot wounds at his rich uncle's joint in Long Island. He is also a smartarse, bigtime.

Two of the friends he has made there are murdered, and they were research scientists at a biological weapons type facility on Plum Island, a nearby piece of land.

He has to work out the reason they were killed, which, despite the biological red herring, turns out to be pirate treasure.

This book drags quite a bit in the middle with a lot of discussion of Captain Kidd, he of the pirate treasure fame, but the end was decent.

3 out of 5
