Title Profile & Character Information

The Prodigal Son

Annotation
When a lethal toxin extracted from the blowfish disappears from a Connecticut university laboratory in 1969, anxious biochemist Dr. Millie Hunter gets the news to Capt. Carmine Delmonico-but folks still drop dead at an important dinner party and then a gala event. Signs point to Millies husband, Dr. Jim Hunter, a scientist whos making his name and a black man married to a white woman. Is he being framed? Fourth in a series that seems to be finding its bearings; McCullough worked as a neurology researcher at Yale in the late 1960s and early 1970s, so shes on comfortable ground here.
