The Trudeau Vector: A Novel | [Juris Jurjevics]

The Trudeau Vector: A Novel

The die is cast. Their lives will cross in Jurjevics's engrossing debut thriller, brilliant and terrifying in its medical and historical accuracy. Hanley's inquiry and Admiral Rudenko's quest bring them up against hazards much bigger than microbes: scientific megalomania, lingering cold war tensions, world-threatening environmental toxins, all unfolding in the unforgiving extremes of the Arctic.

Publisher's Summary

As the international team of scientists at the spectacular Trudeau Research Center prepares for six months of unrelenting Arctic winter, three of their colleagues are found dead, their pupils missing and their bodies contorted in ghastly, unnatural positions. An American epidemiologist, the talented and unconventional Dr. Jessica Hanley, is summoned to investigate the medical riddle posed by these grisly deaths. At the same time, a decorated Russian admiral in Moscow is assigned a top-secret mission to locate and retrieve a Russian submarine that has suddenly and inexplicably vanished from central command's radar.

The die is cast. Their lives will cross in Jurjevics's engrossing debut thriller, brilliant and terrifying in its medical and historical accuracy. Hanley's inquiry and Admiral Rudenko's quest bring them up against hazards much bigger than microbes: scientific megalomania, lingering cold war tensions, world-threatening environmental toxins, all unfolding in the unforgiving extremes of the Arctic.A thriller that superbly depicts the precarious, volatile area where science and global politics can clash with disastrous results, The Trudeau Vector is reminiscent of the classic suspense of Frederick Forsyth¿s The Day of the Jackal and the terrifying realism of Michael Crichton's The Andromeda Strain. With its disquieting and revelatory authenticity, readers cannot help but fall under its spell and ask themselves, "Could this really happen?"

    "Very well researshed medical technothriller"

    I haven't yet finished listening to this audiobook (I've gone through the first half in just a couple days), but I'm fascinated with the high level of scientific and technical details, amazing for a writer with no scientific background, which makes me think he had to research the topics very thoroughly. It reminds me of the style of two of my favorite authors, Michael Crichton and Robin Cook. I can't wait until I get to the end of this nailbiting thriller. Highly recommended.

    "Too complex"

    I spent more time trying to figure out the characters and plot than being entertained. I don't want to have to think so hard that I'm afraid to miss on sentence that I need to keep rewinding so I don't get totally lost. I felt as though I had to work to listen to this book, however this may be someone's cup of tea, but it is not mine.
