Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0451408721, Mass Market Paperback)High concept doesn't get much higher than the Titanic meets The Hot Zone plot of Leonard S. Goldberg's fifth medical thriller. Forensic pathologist Joanna Blalock finds cholera in a dead Chinese infant in Los Angeles, and then is immediately whizzed by a top government security officer to Global Explorer II, a floating laboratory off the coast of Alaska, where a giant, glittering iceberg seems to be releasing a deadly, 65-million-year-old toxin.
Crew members sicken and die, unwittingly aided by an oversexed technician; a storm at sea threatens to capsize the ship; a mysterious cholera epidemic somehow linked to the frozen toxin hits the world; and somebody onboard has personal reasons for hastening the deaths of several members of the world-class scientific team.
It's all heady stuff, loaded with scientific jargon on everything from autopsies to evolution, but Goldberg keeps it moving with muscle and brainpower. And the attractive, vulnerable Blalock holds it all together with her own carefully cultivated credibility. Other Blalock books: Deadly Care, Deadly Harvest, Deadly Medicine, and A Deadly Practice. --Dick Adler
