Red TideBook - 2004
Something has been set loose in the city -- an airborne horror that leaves a tunnel full of corpses below the streets of Seattle just as experts from fifty nations are gathering at a downtown hotel for an international symposium on chemical and biological weapons. Terror has hit the West Coast with a vengeance -- as a deadly tide sweeps into Frank Corso's town.
"Disgraced" rogue journalist and reclusive bestselling author Corso is at an exhibition showcasing the photographs of his best friend and ex-lover Meg Dougherty when terror strikes.
The deeper he immerses himself in a shadow world of senseless violence and unconscionable evil, the stronger the connections appear that tie one brutal death with the impending destruction of thousands -- perhaps millions -- of innocent lives. And suddenly Corso is caught up in a deadly conspiracy where the nightmarish consequences dwarf anything normally spawned by vengeance, greed, or bloodlust.
From the critically acclaimed author of Fury and A Blind Eye comes a gripping tale of unrelenting suspense that promises to lift G.M. Ford permanently into the uppermost tier of contemporary crime novelists. Gritty, explosive, timely, and terrific, Ford's Red Tide will carry readers away on a ride they will never forget.
