New York City cab driver Yuri Davydov is a disgruntled Russian emigre poised to lash out at the adoptive nation he believes has denied him the American Dream. A former technician in the Soviet biological weapons system, Biopreparat, Yuri possesses the knowledge to wreak havoc in his new home. But before he executes his planned piece de resistance of vengeance, he experiments first on his suspicious live-in girlfriend, then on a few poor-tipping fares...

Dr. Jack Stapleton and Dr. Laurie Montgomery (both last seen in Chromosome 6) begin to witness some unusual cases in their capacity as forensic pathologists in the city's medical examiner's office: a young, healthy black woman dies of respiratory failure, a Greek immigrant succumbs to a sudden, overwhelming pneumonia. At the same time, the pair are pressured from above to focus on a high-profile string of suspicious deaths of prisoners in police custody. When an unexpected breakthrough persuades Jack that these seemingly unrelated deaths are really connected murders, his colleagues and superiors are skeptical. Only Laurie is somewhat convinced. But the question soon becomes whether the pair will solve the puzzle before Yuri unleashes into the streets of New York the ultimate terror: a modern bioweapon.

With signature skill, Robin Cook has crafted a page-turning thriller rooted in up-to-the-minute biotechnology. Vector is all-too-plausible fiction at its terrifying best. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Karyn | 2/14/2014

    " Really liked this book, but the problem with it as with quite a few of Robin Cook's books is that it really builds up till the end and then the ending leaves a lot to be desired "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Reese Copeland | 2/7/2014

    " I enjoyed the book. It presents a very real possibility in terms of bio-terrorism, and it really causes you to think; especially given the times we live in today. It has a compelling story, and is a pretty quick read. I did enjoy the book and would recommend it to others, particularly those who follow the news and have concerns about bio-terrorism. "

    " It's the kind of novel that has made Robin Cook famous. It keeps you on the edge of your seat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dyana | 2/3/2014

    " This disturbing and page-turning read is a weapon of mass destruction thriller involving a disgruntled Russian taxi driver (a former biological weapons tech), two firefighter white supremists, Jack Stapleton - a NYC medical examiner who uncovers the plot to wipe out a government building and Central Park, plus anthrax and botulism. A very intense story and a plausible picture of a modern bioweapon, and of terror and disaster that could happen in real life. Not for the faint-hearted! "
