When Chubb University biochemist Millie Hunter notices that a deadly neurotoxin is missing from her laboratory refrigerator, she immediately goes to her father, who is also CT’s Chief Medical Examiner. They both know that the situation is grave; the poison shuts down the nervous system and is virtually impossible to stop. Soon, as bodies pile up and the coroner keeps pointing to the neurotoxin, Captain Carmine Delmonico must find the killer fast. Helped by his exotic and brilliant colleague Delia and his constant wife Desdemona (an excellent cook), Delmonico follows the trail no matter how close to home it may lead.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Very much in the tradition of P. D. James…McCullough is a tremendous storyteller.”

    Times (London)

  • “McCullough’s hero must use his wits, not an array of scientific equipment, to solve crimes.  The book is a very welcome return to basics in this high-tech, CSI era.”

    " Unlike the previous Carmine Delmonico books I have read, this book keeps the interest levels up the whole way through. The conclusion leaves a little to be desired, however; one of the crimes is not wrapped up nicely like it should be, so here's hopping that a fifth book will solve that issue. "

    " Not as good as previous work but worth a look "

    " Last time I read this author was The Thorn Birds, I think - no, I take that back, it was The Ladies of Missalonghi. I liked both of those books way better than this softly paced thriller/who-dunit. It did not encourage me to pick up her next thriller. "

    " A good "who done it" from the author of The Thorn Birds. "

    " Although I've read this author before, I didn't think that this book was of the same caliber. The writing was simplistic and the characters were not well developed. "

    " McCullough's Carmine Delmonico series does not hold a candle to many of her other novels, and Prodigal Son is below par for the series. "

    " Just a book, a twist at the end but just a book. "

    " OL Contemporary mystery. Blowfish poison stolen from the lab..bodies one by one not related..or are they. Suspects become bodies. Good story. Author of The Thorn Birds and a long list "
